Coalition Letters Encouraging Preservation of the 5.9 GHz Spectrum

On Sept. 8 and Sept. 16, 2020, CVSA joined 50 other transportation safety stakeholders in sending letters to the White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology encouraging continued preservation of the 5.9 GHz spectrum for transportation safety technology. The Federal Communications Commission published a notice of proposed rulemaking earlier this year to reallocate a portion of the 5.9 GHz band for private use. This reallocation threatens the continued deployment of connected vehicle technology, for which the band is currently reserved.
