RAC Bulletin 2009-019E - Public Consultation on Allocation to the Amateur Radio Service at 2200 metres.

Industry Canada has announced a public consultation on proposed revisions to the Canadian Table of Frequency Allocations - Gazette Notice DGTP-003-09, http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/sf09460.html.

This proposal contains a total of 17 changes, including one proposal to make a secondary allocation to the amateur service in the 135.7 - 137.8 kHz band in conformity with the WRC-2007 decision on AI 1.15. The Radio Advisory Board of Canada (RABC) will be submitting comments on the entire proposal, and RAC Vice-President Industrial Liaison Norm Rashleigh, VE3LC, will be on the RABC working group that prepares the comments. RAC will also submit separate comments on this particular item. The comment period closes August 10, 2009, after which all comment will be posted on the Industry Canada web site. Subsequently, IC will decide on the final revisions and issue a revised Table of Frequency Allocations.

If all goes well, we hope that this revised table will include an amateur allocation at 2200m, possibly by late 2009 or early 2010.

Vice-President, Regulatory Affairs
Richard Ferch, VE3KI/VE3IAY
