The LF regulations in France have been published by the ANF, our
frequency coordination agency, in the 'Journal Officiel'. The band is
allocated to the amateur service on a secondry basis, as per the CEPT
However, the band has not yet been officially opened for use by amateurs.
In the meantime, I've contacted our ministry of telecommunications (once
again!), who told me that we CAN start using the band from now on,
although there's still a signature missing but the document is
circulating in the offices.
So, we can use the band, but cannot use the band... It's up to us!
CU on the air very soon!
