At the recent RASA/ACMA meeting, ACMA noted RASA’s request for an extension to the 1.8 MHz band and advised that they will consult with Defence in 2019 as part of the development of the ACMA’s Five Year Spectrum Outlook (FYSO).

RASA noted that there is 125 kHz available between the top of the existing band (1875 kHz) and 2 MHz, and that a sharing arrangement should be possible.
