European Common Allocation Table

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.
