Station Classes

I-1. Stations (Alphabetical by Classes)

Station and associated station class (STC) symbols are required for all frequency requests and assignments. Station classes are used to identify the service in which the transmitting station will operate.

All classes of earth stations are fixed earth stations except--

  • Those which have the following letters suffixed to the STC symbol:

A The earth station is aboard an aircraft.

L The earth station is on a land vehicle.

S The earth station is on board a ship.

M The earth station is on any two or all three of the above.

  • Those with the following STC symbols:

TG A Maritime Mobile-Satellite Earth Station.

TJ An Aeronautical Mobile-Satellite Mobile Earth Station.

TO An Aeronautical Radionavigation-Satellite Mobile Earth Station.

TQ A Maritime Radionavigation-Satellite Mobile Earth Station.

TU A Land Mobile-Satellite Mobile Earth Station.

The suffix R shall be added to the established STC symbol only if the station is used primarily as a repeater in the bands shown below. For this purpose, a repeater consists of a radio transmitter, a radio receiver, and coupling between the two so as to retransmit unchanged in intelligence the received signal.

  • 29.89-50.00 MHz (Exclusive Government Bands)
  • 138.00-144.00 MHz
  • 148.00-149.90 MHz
  • 150.05-150.80 MHz
  • 162.00-174.00 MHz
  • 406.10-420.00 MHz

I-3. Services, Station Classes, and Stations

Use Table I-1 to determine the proper STC symbol to use versus the service in which the transmitting station will operate. Frequency bands are allocated to services based on the US Government Table of Frequency Allocations.

I-4. Spectrum Designation of Frequency

Table I-2 shows that spectrum designation of frequency is a method of referring to a range or band of communications frequencies. In America, the designator is a two-or three-letter abbreviation for the name. In the ITU, the designator is numeric.

NOTE: The eight microwave frequency bands designated by the letters C, L, S, X, K, Q, V, and W represent the frequency ranges from 225 MHz to 100 GHz. They describe radar bands that have no official status and should not be used.
