Brazil to get 60m and other new bands

| September 7, 2018

ANATEL, the Brazilian telecoms regulator, has produced an updated band plan, effective in a couple of months, which releases 60m to their amateurs.

This is the WRC-15 secondary allocation 5351.5 to 5366.5kHz with 25W EIRP for Class A operators.

In addition they have been granted another two new bands, 135kHz with 1 watt EIRP and 472kHz with 5 watts EIRP.

The 160m band in Brazil will be expanded from 1850kHz, making it now 1.8 to 2MHz, and the 80m band will become 3.5 to 4MHz.

The new frequencies are expected to come into operation in the week beginning 26 November 2018.
