From Tuesday 16th May 2017, the German Regulator has issued an announcement that allows German Full licensees to operate any mode up to 12.5KHz wide between 70.150 - 70.180 at up to 25w ERP in horizontal polarisation from their registered home location (no portable or mobile operation allowed).
Full station log information to be kept for ALL transmissions made, including tests with no contacts. Log is also to contain all the usual items plus beam direction.
This is a limited allocation similar to the one issues in 2014 and 2015 and ends on 31st August 2017. The time period corresponds with the Sporadic E season on the band, so it is expected that those squares in Germany will be sought after by 4m stations around Europe.
