Subject: LF: RE: 500KHz/600m
posted a note to this reflector that was written for the RSGB's Spectrum Forum
the other day - maybe you and others haven't seen it. The position in the
UK is that the RSGB submitted a proposal for access to frequencies around
500kHz, see http://www.rsgb-spectrumforum.org.uk/mf.htm.
This is fairly self-explainatory. The proposal is still being considered
by our regulator, Ofcom.
Elsewhere, Walter, DJ2LF has a special permit for the current year for
a beacon, DI2AG, that transmits on 440.044kHz.
Could someone bring me up to speed on this in
the UK or elsewhere in Europe? Our Industry Canada liason person is looking
for information to bolster a possible proposal for a 600m amateur
allocation. Any background history would be helpful.
