New frequencies for Germany and Colombia

| November 17, 2017

German amateurs have been allocated 5351.5 to 5366.5kHz on a secondary basis with a maximum power of 15W EIRP.

Their 6m band has now been permanently extended to 50.03 to 51MHz.

Almost on the other side of the world, Colombian amateurs are gaining new allocations at 2200m, 630m and 6m.

Thanks to the efforts of the Colombian national amateur radio society LCRA and their strategic partner Liga Radio Bogotá, the bands 135.7 to 137.8kHz, 472 to 479kHz and 5.3515 to 5.3665MHz will shortly go live.

Activation awaits the Colombian communications ministry granting the privileges by administrative act.
