Swedish Radio Hams on 472 kHz

On 1 October 2013 Swedish radio amateurs gained access to the 472-479 kHz band

The maximum radiated power 1W EIRP, apparently Sweden is too close to Russia to permit 5 watts EIRP

The Telecom Paper reports that also on 1 October 2013 new rules concerning exemptions from the requirement for radio transmitters to have an operating license came into effect.

Most transmitters need a license but for the sake of simplicity, PTS allows exceptions in cases where this is little risk of interference.

A new exemption applies to vehicle communication transmissions in the 63–64 GHz band. Other exemptions relate to RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) use in the 2446–2454 MHz range for sales and inventory, and for vehicle radars in the range 24.25–26.65 GHz.
