South Africans get 100kHz on 60m

The South African regulator, ICASA, recently published their 2018 National Radio Frequency Plan.

In this, amateur radio was allocated 100kHz on a shared basis in the 60 metre band.

5.350 to 5.450MHz is now available to all licensed radio amateurs on a shared, non-interference basis, with a power limit of 15W EIRP.

The South African Radio League Council is working on the 60m band plan and will publish it as soon as possible so operation on 60 metres can start.

Additionally, 5.290MHz has been allocated for WSPR beacons used in the SARL Propagation Research project.
