Amateur status in the ARSP 7100-7200 kHz
ACMA recently reallocated a domestic broadcaster from 7190 to 7350 kHz.
RASA noted that this highlights an anomaly in the Australian Radio Spectrum Plan (ARSP) where amateurs are listed as secondary to broadcasting and fixed/mobile in the 7100-7200 kHz segment.
As per footnote 141C, broadcasting vacated the segment in 2009. This is reflected in the Region 3 allocation, where amateurs are primary.
The ACMA requested additional information about the reasons the amateur community is making this request. ACMA noted this anomaly and agreed that it would be reviewed as part of the normal ARSP review process post WRC 2019.
