Spanish Hams Receive New Frequency Privileges

10/29/2008 The Union de Radioaficionados Espanoles (URE), Spain’s IARU Member-Society, reported that as of October 24,2008, that country’s Secretaría de Estado de Telecomunicaciones y para la Sociedad de la Información (SETSI) approved an expansion on 160 meters during certain events, such as international Amateur Radio contests. The new allocation, 1.810-1.830 MHz, as well as 1.850-2.000 MHz, will be available for the 2009 ARRL 160 Meter Contest, the 2009 King of Spain Contests (both SSB and CW) and the 2009 CQ 160 Meter Contest (both SSB and CW); it was also allowed for the CQ Worldwide DX Contest (SSB) earlier this month. In addition, Spanish hams were also granted privileges on the experimental portion of the 4 meter band -- 70.150-70.200 MHz running 10 W ERP -- until April 25, 2009.  -- Thanks to The Daily DX for the information
