ACMA Proposes Changes to the Radiocommunications (Citizen Band Radio Stations) Class Licence 2002.
On 28 January 2011 the ACMA released a paper signalling its intention to vary the CBRS Class Licence. The paper follows consultation between the ACMA, industry and the public in the context of the ACMA’s review of the 400 MHz band, the ACMA proposes to increase the number of radiofrequency channels in the UHF Citizen Band.

The ACMA proposes to vary the Radiocommunications (Citizen Band Radio Stations) Class Licence 2002 (the CB Class Licence) to facilitate operation on the new channels. Other proposed variations to the CB Class Licence include variations to:
a.. facilitate the transmission of electronic identification and location information;
b.. relax the duty cycle restriction for telemetry and telecommand transmissions;
c.. improve the regulatory effectiveness of the CB Class Licence;
d.. prohibit the indirect linking of repeater stations; and
e.. prohibit the linking of CB stations.
The proposed variations are discussed in the paper Proposed variations to the Radiocommunications (Citizen Band Radio Stations) Class Licence 2002 (Word [161 kb] or PDF [124 kb] formats).
The WIA was represented on the ACMA 400 MHz Review Working Group by WIA Director, Peter Young, VK3MV that suggested these changes.
