Spanish Amateurs Gain New Frequencies


Unión de Radioaficionados Españoles, the IARU member-society for Spain, has announced that Spanish amateurs may now use 1810-1830 kHz in the 160-meter band on a secondary basis. This is in addition to the existing primary allocation of 1830-1850 kHz. The new 630-meter band, 472-479 kHz, is also available to Spanish amateurs now. Both changes took effect on May 10, 2013.
