Temporary Reassignment of Commercial Services into 70cm

The 400MHz spectrum review process held in 2010 identified a need for using part of the 70cm amateur band, on a temporary basis, for the orderly repacking of 400MHz commercial services.

The ACMA have now advised that, as part of the ongoing 400MHz band plan review, it will be necessary to temporary move some commercial services into the 442.5 -444MHz and 446.5-448MHz segments of the 70cm band.

Commercial services will be assigned on a secondary basis (i.e. equal status with the amateur service) and the reassignment will be required from August this year to the end of 2015.

The ACMA will co-ordinate frequency assignment to avoid interference issues with existing licensed amateur services. Clubs that currently hold licenses for repeater links, or other purposes in this segment, should contact the WIA for further information.
