The 23 centimeterMHz or 1. The amateur radio band is between MHz and MHz. The amateur satellite band is between MHz and MHz, and its use by satellite operations is only for up-links on a non-interference basis to other radio users ITU footnote 5.
A friend brought this news to my attention today. If all this makes its way up the ITU World Radio Conference and gets adopted it is more likely that amateur radio will be kicked out of the MHz segement as a primary service. The zip file contains a PDF document explaining that there is a legit need for non-safety aeronautical applications such as data links for border control, fire surveillance etc.
After the last reports and slides received by the author, it seems that radio amateurs will lose the 23 cm band in the near future. That is the reason for this late proposal. We can be optimistic, but more than a small piece of spectrum for near band communication will not survive.
Storm Jan 13 The first s 10 Watts received was a plain transceiver no cable, clamp or microphone and was in excellent condition.
The 6-meter band is the lowest portion of the very high frequency VHF radio spectrum allocated to amateur radio use. The term refers to the average signal wavelength of 6 meters. Although located in the lower portion of the VHF band, it nonetheless occasionally displays propagation mechanisms characteristic of the high frequency HF bands. This normally occurs close to sunspot maximum, when solar activity increases ionization levels in the upper atmosphere.
Ham radio is cool, but it can be very nerve wracking to talk to someone using it. Talking to someone using ham radio is commonly known as a 'QSO' or a 'contact'. Although it can seem really scary at first, you won't regret a moment of it.
They are very different to the HF ham radio bands in their character, but this means that they provide a different challenge and a different area of interest within the hobby of amateur radio. The UHF ham radio bands are very convenient to use. Antennas are small and amateur radio equipment for the UHF bands is compact and widely available.
