Actions relating to spectrum management in the Army are not unilateral in that most frequency assignments will have impact on more than one agency of the government. The authority for the United States Army to use the radio frequency spectrum was derived from The President, by Executive Order in 1970. Directives as promulgated by the US Military Communications-Electronics Board. Policies as established by the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Telecommunications.

Which subelement of Interdepartment Radio Advisory Committee has the responsibility for preparing answers to the International Telecommunications Union on questions relating to United States Army frequency assignments? Spectrum Planning Subcommittee. Technical Subcommittee. International Notification Group. Frequency Assignment Subcommittee. 12. In the Department of the Army the Assistant Chief of Staff for Communications-Electronics has staff responsibility for Communications-Electronics spectrum management and for call sign management. True. False. 13. When sublists of frequencies are given to the divisions by the corps communications-electronics officer, and the division communications-electronics officer and the radio officer can assign frequencies to their own systems is called centralized control. True. False. 14. The double ABM plan uses the same six frequency blocks as the single ABM plan. True.

False. 15. For ground-based terminals using line-of-sight propagation, the separation of 30 to 90 miles is dependent upon the earth's curvature, antenna elevations, and the nature of the intervening terrain True. False. 16. Using cross-polarization of antennas in a multichannel radio system has no effect on reducing the frequency separation between the transmitting and receiving frequencies True. False. 17. What major organization has a membership of about 150 countries, which govern international telecommunications? International Radio Consultative Committee. International Frequency Registration Board.
