Ofcom 2400 MHz Consultation

AMSAT-UK_Bevelled_LogoThe UK communications regulator Ofcom has published a call for inputs relating to spectrum use by licence exempt devices in the 2.4 GHz band. 2400-2450 MHz is an ITU Amateur and Amateur Satellite Service allocation.

The Ofcom announcement says:

This band is close to radio spectrum in the 2300 MHz band, which the Ministry of Defence (MoD) plans to release for new civil uses.

The MoD has therefore commissioned work to audit licence exempt uses in the 2400 MHz band, in particular to identify the full range of possible uses of this spectrum. The call for inputs introduces two audit reports that explore licence exempt use in the 2400 MHz band.

It also invites stakeholders to identify any other uses that may need to be considered to understand any technical coexistence.

The public consultation closes on June 19, 2013.
