UK – Updating the Amateur Licensing Framework

Some interesting news from the UK and OfCom – their version of the ACMA.

From section 5.4

For the Full-level licences, where a band is described in the amateur radio licence schedule as being a ‘primary’ amateur radio band, we are proposing to increase the powers available to 1000 Watts (30 dBW) PEP. As this applies only to so-called ‘primary’ bands, we do not believe that it would risk disruption to other users as similar or higher powers are already in use in neighbouring countries by radio amateurs.

RASA continues to lobby for 1000 Watts and will keep readers posted.
