Radio amateurs in the UK have already started testing equipment for use on the new 146 MHz allocation expected to be available from the end of October 2014
The RSGB VHF Manager has expressed the hope that the allocation will be used imaginatively for such things as Digital ATV, Digital Voice, Spread Spectrum and new innovative modes.
UK Radio Amateur Charles Brain @G4GUO is now developing Digital TV (DATV) for use on 146.
