Critical Comms: ARCIA releases economic report on LMR spectrum use

ARCIA-LogoA report released yesterday by the Australian Radio Communications Industry Association (ARCIA) reveals that spectrum used for land mobile radio (LMR) services in Australia generates economic benefits of between $1.99 billion and $3.72 billion every year.
