Yeah, it would be kinda nice if the FCC just went a head and repacked it so you can easily make 5 5MHz blocks in SMR. Redo the band plan, revoke 5MHz and auction that off. Then use those precedes to pay the former A and B license holders. Allow for smaller license holders with deployed spectrum to have discounted rates. Have exceptions for smaller outfits to seek additional funding if they need to completely replace equipment and/or utilize a different band, or even have priority access.
It seems like it would be something the FCC would be interested in as they seek additional spectrum.
I looked through a bunch of permits and they use a variety of antennas over the years. The most common in recent years are the Commscope FFHH-65C-R3, Commscope SBNHH-1D65B, and Nokia AAFIA. Usually, the Comscope FFHH and Nokia AAFIA are used together. I included the ones I encountered in some quick searches below. I have also included links to pages or pdfs which show the antenna.
TMZXX-6516-A2M - 2 port: 1710-2155MHz (B2, B4, B66?) HBXX-6517DS-A2M - 4 port: 1710-2180MHz (B2, B4, B66?) SBNHH-1D65C - 6-port: 2x 698-896Mhz (B5, B12) and 1695-2360Mhz (B2, B4, B66) FFHH-65C-R3 - 8-port: 4x 617-806Mhz (B12, B71) and 4x 1695-2460Mhz (B2, B4, B66)
Nokia: AAFIA - 16T16R - B25 and B66
Are there distinct antennas for band 14 deployment? There's a new rack going up with new kinds of antennas here in Grand Forks. The antennas are approximately the same size as T-Mobile's 600MHz antennas but it's not those.
