Update .. got these today .. The FIPS file lays out T-mobile's 600 MHz deployment by county. There are 7 "bands" (A-G) .. In some counties, all have been deployed .. in others just a few. If you have 600MHz gear, might want to check to see where issues might pop up.

And these are just the T-mobile rollouts .. there were a few other buyers that might be using some of the other groups ... T-mobile was just the largest buyer in the 600 MHz band.

Latest Updates on the T-Mobile roll-out (which was the largest purchaser of 600 MHz band frequencies).

The PDF lays out the 600 MHz band and the channel groups (up/down) used in the spreadsheet. So depending on your local area, you can see which frequencies are still less congested. You are still "legally limited" to the gap bands (614-617 and 652-663), but might sneak by if your area isn't fully deployed yet. YMMV ...
