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
communications;
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
document.
NOTE: A list of such ENs is included on the web site http://www.newapproach.org.

ETSI ETSI EN 301 444 V2.1.2 (2016-11) 6 Introduction The requirements defined in the present document have been selected to ensure an adequate level of compatibility with other radio services. The levels, however, do not cover extreme cases, which may occur in any location but with a low probability of occurrence. The present document may not cover those cases where a potential source of interference which is producing individually repeated transient phenomena or a continuous phenomenon is present, e.g. a radar or broadcast site in the near vicinity. In such a case it may be necessary to use special protection applied to either the source of interference, or the interfered part or both. The present document does not contain any requirement, recommendation or information about the installation of the LMES. The determination of the parameters of the user earth stations using a given geo-stationary satellite for the protection of the spectrum allocated to that satellite, is considered to be under the responsibility of the satellite operators or the satellite network operators. Applicants for LMESs operating in satellite networks which provide radio navigation service and/or other safety services should note that such satellite network operators may require testing in addition to the present document to prove correct interworking in order to avoid the LMES causing harmful interference which endangers the functioning of these services.

Following the WRC-03 decision [i.4] to allocate to MSS the bands 1 518 MHz to 1 525 MHz (space to Earth) and 1 668 MHz to 1 675 MHz (Earth to space) and the conclusions of WRC-07 [i.5], a new set of emission requirements for LMESs that are capable of transmitting in the frequency band from 1 668,0 MHz to 1 675,0 MHz is specified. The two parts of the L-band frequency allocations are treated as two sub-bands which may be used separately or in any combination. The standard L-band allocation is referenced in the present document as "sub-band 1" and the extended L-band is referenced as "sub-band 2". Table 2c is applicable for LMESs that are capable of transmitting in any combination of either or both of these sub-bands. Table 2c is recommended for all new LMESs including LMES that can only operate in sub-band 1.

The applicant may choose between tables 2b and 2c for new LMESs that are capable of transmitting in only the sub-band 1. The applicant has to declare which alternative is used.

The present document specifies a new set of receiver performance requirements for LMESs under the new Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU [i.6]. Figure 1: Void 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". Recital 10 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.6] states that "in order to ensure that radio equipment uses the radio spectrum effectively and supports the efficient use of radio spectrum, radio equipment should be constructed so that: in the case of a transmitter, when the transmitter is properly installed, maintained and used for its intended purpose it generates radio waves emissions that do not create harmful interference, while unwanted radio waves emissions generated by the transmitter (e.g. in adjacent channels) with a potential negative impact on the goals of radio spectrum policy should be limited to such a level that, according to the state of the art, harmful interference is avoided; and, in the case of a receiver, it has a level of performance that allows it to operate as intended and protects it against the risk of harmful interference, in particular from shared or adjacent channels, and, in so doing, supports improvements in the efficient use of shared or adjacent channels".

Recital 11 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.6] states that "although receivers do not themselves cause harmful interference, reception capabilities are an increasingly important factor in ensuring the efficient use of radio spectrum by way of an increased resilience of receivers against harmful interference and unwanted signals on the basis of the relevant essential requirements of Union harmonisation legislation". As a consequence, the present document includes both transmitting and receiving parameters aiming to maximize the efficient use of radio spectrum. SIST EN 301 444 V2.1.2:2017

ETSI ETSI EN 301 444 V2.1.2 (2016-11) 7 1 Scope 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 communications; • 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 1 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 2 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 document.

6 ETSI EN 301 444 V2.1.2 (2016-11)
Introduction

The requirements defined in the present document have been selected to ensure an adequate level of compatibility with

other radio services. The levels, however, do not cover extreme cases, which may occur in any location but with a low

probability of occurrence.

The present document may not cover those cases where a potential source of interference which is producing

individually repeated transient phenomena or a continuous phenomenon is present, e.g. a radar or broadcast site in the

near vicinity. In such a case it may be necessary to use special protection applied to either the source of interference, or

the interfered part or both.

The present document does not contain any requirement, recommendation or information about the installation of the

LMES.

The determination of the parameters of the user earth stations using a given geo-stationary satellite for the protection of

the spectrum allocated to that satellite, is considered to be under the responsibility of the satellite operators or the

satellite network operators. Applicants for LMESs operating in satellite networks which provide radio navigation

service and/or other safety services should note that such satellite network operators may require testing in addition to

the present document to prove correct interworking in order to avoid the LMES causing harmful interference which

endangers the functioning of these services.

Following the WRC-03 decision [i.4] to allocate to MSS the bands 1 518 MHz to 1 525 MHz (space to Earth) and

1 668 MHz to 1 675 MHz (Earth to space) and the conclusions of WRC-07 [i.5], a new set of emission requirements for

LMESs that are capable of transmitting in the frequency band from 1 668,0 MHz to 1 675,0 MHz is specified.

The two parts of the L-band frequency allocations are treated as two sub-bands which may be used separately or in any

combination. The standard L-band allocation is referenced in the present document as "sub-band 1" and the extended

L-band is referenced as "sub-band 2".

Table 2c is applicable for LMESs that are capable of transmitting in any combination of either or both of these

sub-bands. Table 2c is recommended for all new LMESs including LMES that can only operate in sub-band 1.

The applicant may choose between tables 2b and 2c for new LMESs that are capable of transmitting in only the

sub-band 1. The applicant has to declare which alternative is used.

The present document specifies a new set of receiver performance requirements for LMESs under the new Radio

Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU [i.6].
Figure 1: Void

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".

Recital 10 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.6] states that "in order to ensure that radio equipment uses the radio spectrum

effectively and supports the efficient use of radio spectrum, radio equipment should be constructed so that: in the case

of a transmitter, when the transmitter is properly installed, maintained and used for its intended purpose it generates

radio waves emissions that do not create harmful interference, while unwanted radio waves emissions generated by the

transmitter (e.g. in adjacent channels) with a potential negative impact on the goals of radio spectrum policy should be

limited to such a level that, according to the state of the art, harmful interference is avoided; and, in the case of a

receiver, it has a level of performance that allows it to operate as intended and protects it against the risk of harmful

interference, in particular from shared or adjacent channels, and, in so doing, supports improvements in the efficient

use of shared or adjacent channels".

Recital 11 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.6] states that "although receivers do not themselves cause harmful interference,

reception capabilities are an increasingly important factor in ensuring the efficient use of radio spectrum by way of an

increased resilience of receivers against harmful interference and unwanted signals on the basis of the relevant

essential requirements of Union harmonisation legislation".

As a consequence, the present document includes both transmitting and receiving parameters aiming to maximize the

efficient use of radio spectrum.

1 Scope

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

communications;

• 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

document.
NOTE: A list of such ENs is included on the web site http://www.newapproach.org.

Foreword

This final draft Harmonised European Standard (EN) has been produced by ETSI Technical Committee Satellite Earth

Stations and Systems (SES), and is now submitted for the Vote phase of the ETSI standards EN Approval Procedure.

The present document has been prepared under the Commission's standardisation request C(2015) 5376 final [i.3] to

provide one voluntary means of conforming to the essential requirements of Directive 2014/53/EU on the harmonisation

of the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the market of radio equipment and repealing

Directive 1999/5/EC [7].

Once the present document is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive, compliance with

the normative clauses of the present document given in table A.1 confers, within the limits of the scope of the present

document, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding essential requirements of that Directive, and associated

EFTA regulations.
Proposed national transposition dates
Date of latest announcement of this EN (doa): 3 months after ETSI publication
Date of latest publication of new National Standard
or endorsement of this EN (dop/e): 6 months after doa

Date of withdrawal of any conflicting National Standard (dow): 18 months after doa

Modal verbs terminology

In the present document "shall", "shall not", "should", "should not", "may", "need not", "will", "will not", "can" and

"cannot" are to be interpreted as described in clause 3.2 of the ETSI Drafting Rules (Verbal forms for the expression of

provisions).

"must" and "must not" are NOT allowed in ETSI deliverables except when used in direct citation.

Introduction

The requirements defined in the present document have been selected to ensure an adequate level of compatibility with

other radio services. The levels, however, do not cover extreme cases, which may occur in any location but with a low

probability of occurrence.

The present document may not cover those cases where a potential source of interference which is producing

individually repeated transient phenomena or a continuous phenomenon is present, e.g. a radar or broadcast site in the

near vicinity. In such a case it may be necessary to use special protection applied to either the source of interference, or

the interfered part or both.

6 Final draft ETSI EN 301 444 V2.1.1 (2016-07)

The present document does not contain any requirement, recommendation or information about the installation of the

LMES.

The determination of the parameters of the user earth stations using a given geo-stationary satellite for the protection of

the spectrum allocated to that satellite, is considered to be under the responsibility of the satellite operators or the

satellite network operators. Applicants for LMESs operating in satellite networks which provide radio navigation

service and/or other safety services should note that such satellite network operators may require testing in addition to

the present document to prove correct interworking in order to avoid the LMES causing harmful interference which

endangers the functioning of these services.

Following the WRC-03 decision [i.4] to allocate to MSS the bands 1 518 MHz to 1 525 MHz (space to Earth) and

1 668 MHz to 1 675 MHz (Earth to space) and the conclusions of WRC-07 [i.5], a new set of emission requirements for

LMESs that are capable of transmitting in the frequency band from 1 668,0 MHz to 1 675,0 MHz is specified.

The two parts of the L-band frequency allocations are treated as two sub-bands which may be used separately or in any

combination. The standard L-band allocation is referenced in the present document as "sub-band 1" and the extended

L-band is referenced as "sub-band 2".

Table 2c is applicable for LMESs that are capable of transmitting in any combination of either or both of these

sub-bands. Table 2c is recommended for all new LMESs including LMES that can only operate in sub-band 1.

The applicant may choose between tables 2b and 2c for new LMESs that are capable of transmitting in only the

sub-band 1. The applicant has to declare which alternative is used.

The present document specifies a new set of receiver performance requirements for LMESs under the new Radio

Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU [7].

1 Scope

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

communications;

• 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 [7] (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 [7] may apply to equipment within the scope of the present

document.
NOTE: A list of such ENs is included on the web site http://www.newapproach.org.
