60 Meter News from Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Dominica

The 60 Meter DX Group reports that Swedish Post and Telecom is issuing temporary (6-month) “experimental” licenses for access to 5,351.5-5,366.5 kHz, replacing four channels, 5,310, 5,320, 5,380, and 5,390 kHz. There is a fee. The WRC-15 recommendations regarding 5 MHz have not yet been implemented, but that may happen by January 2018, when the next national band plan is released. In the interim, apparently anyone, even non-hams, can apply for an experimental license. Sweden’s experimental band permits 15 W EIRP.

In Denmark, radio amateurs now have “VFO access” to 5,250-5,450 kHz, all modes, at a maximum power of 1 kW at the antenna feed point.
