  • The Spectrum Direct Radio Frequency Searches don't provide results anymore for fixed and earth stations when frequencies are greater than 960 MHz, except for radiodetermination services.
    Please use the new Spectrum Management System search options to retrieve those frequency records.

Notes:

  • These results do not include protected frequency records. Valid EMC studies require coordination with protected frequency owners. To obtain a list of protected frequency owners by microwave frequency band and longitude range, go to the Protected Microwave Frequency Information Search. Only protected frequencies for the 933-944 and 953-960 MHz bands are available on Spectrum Direct. Please use the new Spectrum Management System Protected Frequency Option to retrieve the owners for the bands greater than 960 MHz. For frequencies below 933 MHz, coordination with protected frequency owners must be done via Industry Canada.
  • Search results include pending frequency assignments. Pending frequencies are not authorized assignments and are subject to being changed prior to final authorization. However, these frequencies will be protected from harmful interference and should be considered part of the spectrum environment. Use the "Frequency Status" field to determine its status, if necessary. Pending frequencies are listed as Frequency Status "0".
  • Information on Amateur is not available.
  • Information on non-site specific licences (affiliated mobiles, LMCS, etc.) are not available using a Geographical Area Search. The Frequency Range Search should be used for these type of licences.
  • Information in coded fields can be decoded using the Radio Frequency Search Field Decode Files.
  • The search can retrieve a maximum of 65,000 records for HTML and XML and 65,000 records for ASCII. If your search criteria would return more than the maximum number of records, an error message will appear and no results will be displayed. If this happens, please narrow your search criteria.
