Andorra Returns to 60m, Gains 4m band, More Power on 6m

In an Andorran government resolution dated 16th June 2016, Andorran Amateurs received news of two new amateur radio bands plus an increase in power in an existing one, following requests from its national society, URA.

60m/5 MHz

Andorra returns to 60m/5 MHz, but this time under the new WRC15 allocation of 5351.5 – 5366.5 kHz with a maximum power of 15W e.i.r.p.  CW and USB is permitted, with a maximum bandwidth of 5 kHz. The permission is temporary until 31 December 2016 and permanent from 1 January 2017. Andorra’s previous 60m allocation had been annulled at the beginning of December last year, following the end of the WRC15 Radiocommunications Conference.


A new 4m allocation of 70.0 – 70.2 MHz has been granted on a non-interference basis with a maximum power of 10W. All modes are permitted and users must abide by the IARU Region One 4m/70 MHz Bandplan.


A power increase has been granted up to a maximum of 600W
