The Federal Communications Commission will begin accepting applications for new Vehicular Repeater Systems in the Part 90 VHF radio services beginning March 15, 2016.

The FCC's action was the result of a Petition for Rule Making submitted by Shulman Rogers on behalf of Pyramid Communications.  The rule change provides a frequency home for VRS units.  Previously, it was extremely difficult to find available frequencies to implement vehicular repeaters, which are a crucial part of public safety communications.
