Big news for 6m band

| November 22, 2019

The World Radiocommunication Conference 2019 (WRC-19) has concluded in Egypt.

The 3,300 delegates considered many aspects of radio including several that will affect our hobby.

Perhaps the biggest news is that the conference has approved an allocation in the 50MHz band for amateurs in Region 1.

The Amateur Service now has a baseline Secondary allocation of 50-52MHz in the main ITU Allocation Table for Region 1.

A total of 44 named Region 1 countries will now have a Primary allocation in all or part of the 50-54MHz band.

You can find full details on this, and all of the WRC-19 outcomes that affect amateur radio, at and on the RSGB social media channels.

The RSGB gratefully acknowledges the work done by our volunteers and all of the IARU team, and thanks everyone involved for an outstanding effort over the last four years.
