Reply Comments to FCC 5.9 GHz Proposed Rule

On April 27, 2020, CVSA submitted comments to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) responding to public comments submitted to the 5.9 GHz spectrum proposed rule. The proposed rule, published on Feb. 6, 2020, would permit unlicensed devices to operate in a portion of the 5.9 GHz spectrum. The full 5.9 GHz spectrum is currently allocated to communication of vehicle safety technology. Both CVSA’s original comments and reply comments express concern that this reallocation would negatively impact the ability of vehicle-to-everything technology to operate effectively.
