The Israeli radio regulator has decided to grant 5MHz temporary permissions on an individual application basis. Eight channels are available to General and Extra Class licence holders. See RSGB World News for details of the channels and permitted modes. The maximum power allowed is 100W PEP, measured at the Tx rather than EIRP. The Israel Amateur Radio Club’s main goal is to experiment for local short range emergency communication readiness and the long distance activity is a side product of this. The validity is from application approval date until mid March 2014 but it appears this could be extended. Operation is on a secondary status, of course, and was coordinated with the Spectrum Committee of the IMOC representing some other relevant organisations.
