New Amateur Bands Available

There are two new bands open to Amateur Radio Stations in the US and several other countries.  They are the 630 and the 2,200 meter bands.  These bands have been used for years by the Maritime Mobile and Fixed radio services.

These bands are also used by some utilities under Part 15 unlicensed operations.  Prior to operating on these bands licensed amateurs must clear their operation and location with the Utilities Technology Council.  There is currently no mobile operation allowed in these bands

The FCC rule making states: “Amateur stations will be permitted to commence operations after a 30-day period, unless UTC notifies the station that its fixed location is located within 1 kilometer of Power Line Carrier (PLC) systems operating on the same or overlapping frequencies,” the FCC said. PLC systems are unlicensed. “This notification process will ensure that amateur stations seeking to operate [on 630 or 2200 meters] are located beyond a minimum separation distance from PLC transmission lines, which will help ensure the compatibility and coexistence of amateur and PLC operations, and promote shared use of the bands.”

A very small number of amateurs have been operating on these bands under special Experimental Licenses from the FCC to test the effectiveness and compatibility with primary and Part 15 users.

To check with the UTC, connect to the following website:

https://utc.org/plc-database-amateur-notification-process/

You must have your station location in latitude and longitude in "Degree - Munute - Second" format for the request.  Even if you aren't planning to get on the band in the near future it might be wise to get authorized to do so.

Have fun.  I look forward to seeing how these new bands perform.
