spectrum management, radio and telecommunications services

About The JRC

The Joint Radio Company Ltd. (JRC) is a joint venture company of National Grid plc (the UK electricity transmission & gas transmission and distribution operator) and the Energy Networks Association Ltd, representing UK gas and electricity transmission and distribution companies.

JRC was formed in 1955 by the UK Utilities as the Joint Radio Committee of the Nationalised Fuel & Power Industries. The Committee was responsible for managing the Fuel & Power radio spectrum, which is what we still do today, but we do a lot more than that as well.

Our Membership consists of major companies from the UK Gas, Electricity & Public Transport sectors, which we represent in all aspects of radio communications. We manage certain Critical National Infrastructure communications bands within the UK radio spectrum and represent its users to Ofcom and other Government Agencies. In addition, in the International context JRC is active within the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and the Conference of European Posts and Telecommunications Authorities (CEPT) in Europe, as well as the International Telecommunication Union's Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R).

We work on behalf of our Membership to secure and manage the radio spectrum they require to facilitate the delivery of mission critical services. We provide operational services for:

  • Frequency planning and co-ordination.
  • Wind Farm co-ordination.
  • Link planning.
  • Supporting radio licence applications.
  • Liaison with Government Agencies.
  • Spectrum Planning
  • Advice and consultancy on radio technology developments.
