This page is a collection of documents relating to the science of coordination, many or which FASMA has crafted their coordination policy from.

FASMA Standards

Spectrum Management in Florida – The basis of spectrum FASMA coordination policy.  This is a PDF presentation explaining the purpose and maths of coordination in an easy to understand format.  FASMA is always willing to present this at conventions and gatherings for the amateur community.

Itinerant Repeater Policy – FASMA’s policy for backyard or itinerant UHF repeaters.  If your system is under 15 meters or 50 feet AGL, this may be for you.

Band Plans – Florida band plans showing all repeater channels and bandwidths.

FASMA Coordination Workflow – Coordinator document for working through a coordination and modeling it.  This is provided for reference only.

FASMA Coordination Form – Coordination Form for FASMA as of Spring 2020 version 1.04
