The present document applies to Land Mobile Earth Stations (LMESs) radio equipment with an EIRP less than or equal
to 33 dBW and which have the following characteristics:
• the LMES could be either vehicle mounted or portable equipment;
• these LMESs are controlled and monitored by a Network Control Facility (NCF). The NCF is outside the
scope of the present document;
• the LMES operate through geostationary satellites as part of a network providing voice and/or data
• the LMES is capable of operating in any combination of all or any part of the frequency ranges sub-band 1 and
sub-band 2 defined in table 1a.
Table 1a: Land Mobile Satellite Service frequency bands
Sub-Band Direction of transmission LMSS frequency bands
Transmit 1 (Earth to space) 1 626,5 MHz to 1 660,5 MHz
Receive 1 (space to Earth) 1 525,0 MHz to 1 559,0 MHz
Transmit 2 (Earth to space) 1 668,0 MHz to 1 675,0 MHz
Receive 2 (space to Earth) 1 518,0 MHz to 1 525,0 MHz
The present document is intended to cover the provisions of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.6] (RE Directive) article 3.2 which
states that "….radio equipment shall be so constructed that it both effectively uses and supports the efficient use of radio
spectrum in order to avoid harmful interference".
In addition to the present document, other ENs that specify technical requirements in respect of essential requirements
under other parts of article 3 of the Directive 2014/53/UE [i.6] may apply to equipment within the scope of the present
NOTE: A list of such ENs is included on the web site http://www.newapproach.org.
