via the RSGB: Threat to Belgian 70cm allocation

Amateurs in Belgium are facing severe restrictions on their 70cm band operations even though, unlike in the UK, it is a Primary allocation for amateurs.

The regulator is proposing to reduce amateur privileges in the middle of the band to just a few milliwatts, and to ban certain modes outright.

These may include digital and analogue ATV, packet radio, and possibly others on the affected frequencies.

We believe it is unprecedented for any Primary user being overridden and restricted in such a way.

Details are on the website of UBA, the Belgian national society:
