PLC – Annual Assessment

It is time to update your contact information in the Power Line Carrier (PLC) Database and calculate your 2014 Assessment.

As a participant, the Power Line Carrier Notification Activity will provide you with a means to determine if a licensed user facility could potentially interfere with the PLC facility(s) that you presently operate or plan to operate. Every time UTC receives information on a new or modified PLC facility from you or receives an application from the government for an LU transmitter in the 10-490 kHz band, the comparison process will be performed. Participation in the Notification Activity also gives you the opportunity to coordinate your PLC frequency selection with other utilities.

Actions Requested:

  • Update all contact, transmitter & receiver information using the Excel File Sample (xls format)
  • Complete the Assessment form. The assessment is based on the total number of PLC transmitters in use by your organization. The total # of transmitters multiplied by 3 = the total Assessment.
