Business Band Radio
From Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_band
The Private Land Mobile Radio Service (47CFR90, or Part 90 of the FCC Rules) was established in the US in 1927
to permit commercial and public safety uses of two-way radio by
commercial entities and non-Federal government agencies. Similar
allocations are available in other countries. The available frequencies
in the US have traditionally been separated into two pools. One is for
industrial and business users, including some special categories such as
petroleum, manufacturing and forestry; the other is for public safety
including medical, police, fire and others. The industrial and business
frequencies, sometimes also known as "business band radio" and the
eligibility requirements are listed in 47CFR90.35.
Frequencies are licensed on a non-exclusive basis, although fixed
stations and mobiles operating in a defined area are issued licenses
only following frequency coordination
to assure equitable sharing of bandwidth. Anyone conducting commercial
business or a number of other activities is eligible for a license.
Other general-purpose two-way radio services with simplified
licensing requirements have also been established over the years in the
US including GMRS and citizen's band, the latter now being licensed by rule, so that users don't need individual licenses. FRS and MURS
are similar pools of frequencies that do not require individual
licenses in the USA. There is a similar group of low power, unlicensed
two-way frequencies in other countries, such as PMR in Europe and UHF CB in Australia.
