The Future Of Amateur Radio!



OFCOM have launched a consultation in respect of the future use of Amateur Radio in the UK:

Summary:

This consultation sets out our proposals for updating the terms and conditions of the amateur radio licence.

These proposals include changes which would provide amateurs with access to some frequency bands previously available only through the variation of individual licences.

The consultation follows changes announced in our April statement on Public Sector Spectrum Release(-1-), where we set out our decision to remove access for amateur radio operators to certain frequencies in the 2300 MHz and 3400 MHz ranges in order to support the release of these bands by the Ministry of Defence.
This consultation, which is likely to be of interest to those in the amateur radio community, closes on 20 October 2014.
