13cm Threat in Sweden

The 2300-2450 MHz band in Sweden is under threat. As part of the consultation process the Swedish national society, SSA, has submitted it’s response to the regulator, the PTS.

SSA argues that the amateur service should remain in the 2.3 GHz band. Wideband digital systems are becoming less sensitive to narrowband signals, which improves the possibilities for band-sharing.

SSA believes that communication with amateur satellites in the band 2400-2450 MHz should continue to be permitted. SSA is requesting to meet the PTS to discuss the technological basis for continuing the amateur service in the band.
