With the Federal Communications Commission FCC Advanced Wireless Services AWS-3 auction of frequencies in the 1695-1710 MHz, 1755-1780MHz, and 2155-2180MHz bands, users of the Aeronautical Mobile Telemetry AMT band from 1755-1850MHz, known as Upper L-Band, could be greatly affected. This paper takes an initial look at how the 1755-1780MHz band will be used by the cellular carriers and presents some preliminary testing results of adjacent channel band interference that could be experienced by AMT users. This paper should be considered as a stepping-off point for future interference discussions, required analysis, and further testing.
