ETSI - EN 300 296
Land Mobile Service; Radio equipment using integral antennas intended primarily for analogue speech; Harmonised Standard covering the essential requirements of article 3.2 of the Directive 2014/53/EU
|Publication Date:||1 March 2016|
The present document covers the minimum characteristics considered necessary in order to avoid harmful interference and to make acceptable use of the available frequencies.
The present document applies to equipment with integral antennas, used in angle modulation systems in the land mobile service, operating on radio frequencies between 30 MHz and 1 000 MHz, with channel separations of 12,5 kHz, 20 kHz and 25 kHz, and is intended primarily for analogue speech.
In the present document different requirements are given for the different radio frequency bands, channel separations, environmental conditions and types of equipment, where appropriate.
The present document is complementary to ETSI EN 300 086 [i.6], which covers radio equipment with an internal or external RF connector, for use in the land mobile service.
The present document may apply to PMR446 equipment as defined in [i.7]. Note that PMR446 equipment has a requirement to incorporate a receiver and may have requirements for 180 s maximum transmission time and VOX.
The present document contains requirements to demonstrate 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" and that "....radio equipment supports certain features ensuring access to emergency services" [i.8].
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 Radio Equipment Directive [i.8] may apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.
