At the recent ACMA/RASA meeting, RASA tabled a proposal for a trial sharing arrangement on the 5351-5365 kHz segment authorised at the WRC.  This would use existing spot frequencies allocated to commercial services, in the same manner as trials undertaken overseas.

ACMA, whilst noting that there will be some allocation issues to be resolved, undertook to consider the request for a trial in 2019. The ACMA requested that RASA provide additional information explaining the reasons for the amateur community’s desire for these changes. The matter will also be considered as part of the next FYSO consultation.
