The ACA has now published the Australian Radio Frequency Spectrum Plan, replacing the earlier plan of January 2002.

In identifying the changes made to the Table, the Authority says that it has promoted the amateur service to primary status in the 1825 – 1875 kHz band. Previously the amateur allocation at this band was secondary.

WIA President, Michael Owen, VK3KI said that the WIA was particularly pleased, as this change accepted in full the WIA’s submission made during its involvement in the consideration of the draft table.

Interestingly, despite removal in some states, the band 420 - 430 MHz remains allocated on a secondary basis to the amateur service.
