Via the RAC: FCC to withdraw US Amateur privileges in the 9 cm Microwave Band


The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has recently made changes affecting the Amateur Radio Service in the United States and this has also raised concerns among Canadian Amateurs.

The FCC has ruled that it will withdraw US Amateur privileges at 3300-3500 MHz (the 9 cm Microwave band) in order to make the band available to 5G Mobile and Internet Service Providers. The dates when this is to take final effect have not yet been decided.

This FCC action does not directly affect Canadian Amateurs who continue to have a secondary allocation on this band.
