The 2015 annual update of the European Common Allocation Table includes an upgrade of the status of the 70 MHz amateur / ham radio band
The 70 MHz band has been upgraded from a mere information note to something a bit more substantial for other European countries.
Previously there was an informational only note which read:
"EU9: In a growing number of CEPT countries, parts of the band 70.0-70.5 MHz are also allocated to the Amateur Service on a secondary basis."
Now, after a lot of hard work by David Court, EI3IO in IARU Region 1 and supported by RSGB and other member societies, the revised EU9 reads:
“CEPT administrations may authorise all or parts of the band between 69.9-70.5 MHz to the amateur service on a secondary basis.”
Note there will be NO change in the UK allocation, 69.9 MHz is a special allocation for Germany.
