Australia microwave spectrum changes

| August 29, 2014

The next stage of proposed changes to microwave spectrum in Australia has now started with a draft direction from the Canberra government to licence spectrum overlapping the 3.4GHz amateur band for mobile broadband.

This follows a previous consultation and other proposed changes in the 2.3GHz band in which the Wireless Institute of Australia been actively involved.

The latest changes pose a particularly serious threat on the harmonised use of 3400-3410 by the amateur service and amateur satellite service as one of the proposed new commercial bands is 3400-3425MHz.
