Australian amateurs to get LF allocation
« on: October 04, 2008, 07:11:18 AM »
From the RSGB News site:

Australia is set to join the 30-odd countries whose radio amateurs have been already given the new low frequency amateur band of 135.7 to 137.8kHz. The Australian Communications and Media Authority has released its draft Australia Radio Frequency Spectrum Plan that is to come into force on the 1st of January 2009. It includes 135.7 to 137.8kHz for the Amateur Service on a secondary basis. This means that VK radio amateurs cannot cause harmful interference to the radio-navigation service stations that continue to operate in a number of countries. The permitted maximum radiated power is one watt EIRP. The New Year should see the Australian Advanced Licence gain this band as a new operating privilege.
