IARU Spectrum Requirement

The amateur service requires retention of access to the band 2300 – 2450 MHz and upgrading where possible the band 2390 – 2450 MHz to primary status, and the amateur-satellite service requires retention of the band 2400 – 2450 MHz.

The band 2300-2450 MHz is allocated to the Amateur Service on a secondary basis in all three Regions. Actions by WARC-92, WRC-07 and certain administrations in their domestic allocations have reduced the amount of spectrum within this band available to the Amateur Service.

The band 2400-2500 MHz is used for ISM applications and is increasingly congested by (unlicensed) low-power devices such as radio local area networks (RLANs) creating significant interference levels. Substitute spectrum for the Amateur Satellite Service, which is restricted to the ISM segment, is therefore sought.
