Looming Loss of 2300-2302 MHz – WIA submission

The WIA has sent off its submission to the ACMA. The 2900-word submission provides background on the Amateur Service and the role of the WIA. It goes on to outline the context of the history of the amateur VHF-UHF-SHF bands and notes the significant loss of segments from the Australian amateur allocations in the 70 cm, 23 cm, 13 cm and 9 cm bands, with re-allocation to new services.

The submission (available below) then sets out current use of the 13 cm band in the context of the WIA band plan and the international use of the band regarding weak-signal operations. The impact of losing 2300-2302 MHz is set out in strong terms. The WIA wishes to preserve a future for leading edge weak-signal amateur radio development and operations in this region of the microwave spectrum.

The submission sets out the WIA's proposal to retain 2300-2300.15 MHz, the reasons why and the context of how it would work. President Phil Wait VK2ASD has requested an early meeting with the ACMA to discuss the submission.

73, Roger VK2ZRH
