ARRL Seeks Comments on Proposed 33 cm Band Plan

04/03/2012

A few months ago, the ARRL UHF/Microwave Band Plan Committee asked the Amateur Radio community about current, planned and projected uses of the amateur bands between 902 MHz-3.5 GHz. The response was beyond our expectations, with hundreds of comments and suggestions received. Thanks to all of you who took the time to share information with us.

After reading the feedback, the Committee began working on the band plans, and the draft plan for 33 cm (902-928 MHz) is now ready for your review. Please take a moment to look over the accompanying draft and let us know if you have any major concerns. As a reminder, there are still a few days left to comment on the draft 9 cm band plan released earlier this month.

The purpose of these band plans is to share information about how our bands are being used and to suggest compatible frequency ranges for various types of application. We recognize that local conditions or needs may necessitate deviations from a band plan, and regional frequency coordinating bodies may recommend alternatives for use in their respective regions.

Please submit your comments via e-mail comments by May 7, 2012. Thank you once again for helping us complete this important project.

73,

Rick Roderick K5UR, Chair
ARRL Microwave Band Plan Committee
