New Zealand 60m Trial

New Zealand's NZART have announced that it has negotiated with RSM and the NZ Defence Force to obtain a licence to allow limited operation by ZL amateur operators on 60m on a trial basis.

The purpose of the trial is for RSM, NZART and primary users to investigate the ability for the amateur radio operators to operate on the frequencies of operation on a secondary basis without causing interference to primary users.

Operation centres on 5353 kHz and 5362 - 5364 kHz with a maximum output of 10 dBW e.i.r.p.
