Following a comprehensive document review on last year’s 5 MHz amateur operation in the Czech Republic and evidence of 5 MHz amateur operating frequencies elsewhere in Europe, the Czech telecommunications regulator CTU, together with the Czech Ministry of Defence (MoD), have agreed to changes in 5 MHz permits for Czech (OK) radio amateurs following the conclusion of the present permit in Autumn 2014.
The number of 5 MHz channels available under the new 2015 permit, has been increased from 6 to 12 and a substantial number of these have been aligned primarily with the UK and also the US allocations.
