Foundation Amateurs can operate IRLP

A question has arisen as to the interpretation of the Determination amending the Amateur LCD affecting Foundation licensees.

The question is whether a Foundation licensee can transmit tones, for example, the tones necessary to operate through an IRLP gateway. Of course, the DTMF tones to access an IRLP node transmitted by a Foundation station must be analogue tones, and not a digital transmission.

The ACMA is advising those who have raised this question that the Amateur LCD as amended does not prohibit the transmission of such tones by a Foundation licensee.

Such operation is contemplated by the note to the provision prohibiting the direct connection of a Foundation station to a public telecommunications network which makes it clear that indirect connection through a gateway operated by another licensee is permitted.
