New earth station frequency bands

| June 26, 2015

Ofcom has published a statement (50-page/297KB PDF) giving effect to policy decisions to extend recognised spectrum access for receive-only earth stations to two new frequency bands.

These are ground based terminals that are used to receive signals from meteorological satellites, earth exploration satellites and space missions, but do not transmit.

This now extends to the 7850 – 7900MHz band and the 25.5 – 26.5GHz band and will come into force on 10 July.
