L band (20-cm radar long-band) is a portion of the microwave band of the electromagnetic spectrum ranging roughly from 0.39 to 1.55 GHz. It is used by some communications satellites, and by terrestrial Eureka 147 digital audio broadcasting (DAB). In the United States, the L band is held by the military for telemetry, thereby forcing digital radio to in-band on-channel (IBOC) solutions. DAB is typically done in the 1452–1492-MHz range as in Canada, but other countries also use VHF and UHF bands.
Mobile phones operate at frequencies between 800 and 1900 MHz.
