ARRL UHF/Microwave Band Plan Committee Seeks Comments on Proposed 23 cm Band Plan

06/18/2012

Last winter, 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 and 3.5 GHz. The excellent level of response provided us with the basis to complete drafts of the 9 cm, 13 cm and 33 cm revised band plans for ARRL Board approval. The Committee has now prepared for your consideration a draft band plan for 23 cm (1240-1300 MHz), the final band on its assigned list. Please look over the accompanying draft and let us know if you have any major concerns.

As a reminder, 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 by July 2, 2012. The ARRL UHF/Microwave Band Plan Committee appreciates the active participation of the user community as we work to complete our update of these band plans.

Rick Roderick K5UR, Chair
ARRL UHF/Microwave Band Plan Committee
