Ofcom has published a call for inputs relating to spectrum use by licence exempt devices in the 2,400MHz band. This band is close to radio spectrum in the 2,300MHz band, which the Ministry of Defence plans to release for new civil uses. The MoD has therefore commissioned work to audit licence exempt uses in the 2,400MHz band, in particular to identify the full range of possible uses of this spectrum. The call for inputs introduces two audit reports that explore licence exempt use in the 2,400MHz band. It also invites stakeholders to identify any other uses that may need to be considered to understand any technical coexistence. In addition to licence exempt use, the 2.4GHz band is also a secondary allocation for the amateur services, including ATV repeater outputs and satellite downlinks. The Ofcom consultation is at http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/consultations/2400-mhz.
