Today the "consultation on the allocation of the 40.660 MHz- 40.690 MHz spectrum to private radio stations for individual training, technical exchange of messages and studies, used by radio amateurs" was published on the BIPT website.
This consultation adopted unchanged the proposal submitted by the UBA to BIPT on 21 April 2023.
The consultation runs until 5 July 2023. If it goes well for us, we can hope that a BIPT Council decision giving us access to the mentioned band segment will appear shortly thereafter.
To be clear: for now, we are NOT yet allowed to transmit on 8 metres. This is only allowed after receiving individual permission from BIPT. Of course, these permissions can only be granted after the publication of the BIPT Council's decision.
Please be patient!
