Public Safety Advocate: Public Safety Grade | Andrew Seybold All Things FirstNet, Sep 2017
via Dale

"What he did not say and what I hope to show in this week’s Advocate is that there are differences between public safety grade for Land Mobile Radio (LMR) sites and an LTE network. It is important for LMR communications professionals to understand these differences and not hold AT&T to public safety grade for every cell site in the network. The methodology for hardening an LTE network is different but effective and it is these differences that need to be understood."

NPSTC SDR WG - Cognitive and Software Radio: A Public Safety Regulatory Perspective (pdf)
By John S. Powell, Chair NPSTC Software Defined Radio Working Group "NPSTC argued that the FCC’s real security concern should not be that a particular radio can be modified to operate in violation of FCC rules. Rather, the concern should be that large numbers of radios could be modified simultaneously, such as through ..."

P25: Not a One-Size-Fits-All Technology - Radio Resource Magazine: OnlyOnline - Feb 2015
By Andrew E. Schwartz -- "The National Public-Safety Telecommunications Council’s (NPSTC) twice-issued Project 25 (P25) position paper is an affront to the intelligence of all public-safety communications systems managers tasked with maintaining reliable solutions for their agencies/customers. In my home state, first responders use all common public-safety bands. They also lack, similar to most places, the funding to purchase expensive P25 equipment. Most public-safety first responders in my neighborhood still operate on conventional, and affordable, analog FM radios. This holds true for many public-safety first responders around the country."

Radio Interference from LED Lighting Systems | National Public Safety Telecommunications Council
"NPSTC has been following the issue of interference caused from some LED and fluorescent light system ballasts, which have disrupted both public safety communications and cellular wireless systems. We have also been informed that some USB3 powered computer hubs will cause interference to public safety portable radios operating in the 700 MHz band. NPSTC will publish a formal survey on this topic in early November."

Public-safety groups disagree on ‘public-safety entity’ definition, including utility usage of FirstNet | NTIA/FirstNet content from Urgent Communications - Nov 2014
"Two key public-safety communications organizations—the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) and the National Public-Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC)—express opposing views on the subject of whether critical-infrastructure entities such as utilities should be considered public-safety entities that could be eligible for priority access to the 700 MHz broadband system being built by FirstNet."
