Notice re: Medical Telemetry Devices
The FCC has authorized station WUTF-TV in Worcester to change the frequencies on which it transmits. It will case operations on its current channel 29 and move to channel 19 as early as 8/2/19. This change in broadcast channels may affect equipment in your facility.
The FDA notes:
Many medical telemetry devices are operated under 47 CFR Part 15 of the FCC regulations. These devices are secondary users of the radio frequency (RF) spectrum. Licensed users such as television stations are the primary users. As a secondary user, your telemetry devices may be subject to interference from the primary user at any time, but must not cause interference with the primary user. If your telemetry devices are operating on frequencies licensed to a primary user, you need to be aware of the potential for interference and take any steps necessary to avoid device malfunctions due to interference.
The FDA recommends that you work with the manufacturer of your telemetry systems to determine the frequencies you use and consult the FCC for additional information. You may have to change your telemetry channels to avoid interference.< Previous Article | Next Article >
