IARU Spectrum Requirement

The amateur service seeks to retain at least secondary allocation status in the band 10 – 10.5 GHz and an upgrade to primary status the sub-band 10.35 – 10.45 GHz. The amateur-satellite service seeks to retain access to the band 10.45 – 10.5 GHz and upgrade its status to primary.

EU17 In the sub-bands 3 400 - 3 410 MHz, 5 660 - 5 670 MHz, 10.36 - 10.37 GHz, 10.45 - 10.46 GHz the amateur service operates on a secondary basis. In making assignments to other services, CEPT administrations are requested wherever possible to maintain these sub-bands in such a way as to afcilitate the reception of amateur emissions with minimal power flux densities.

EU23 In the sub-bands 5 660 - 5 670 MHz (earth to space), 5 830 - 5 850 MHz (space to earth) and 10.45 - 10.50 GHz the amateur-satellite service additionally operates on a secondary and non interference basis to other services. In making assignments to other services, CEPT administrations are requested wherever possible to maintain these allocations in such a way as to facilitate the reception of amateur emissions with minimal power flux densities.
