2.3 GHz band changes:As
was predicted at the BATC BGM last October it is highly likely that
there will be changes to the amateur allocations at 2.3 GHz, which will
almost certainly affect ATV repeaters and simplex operation. The
good news is that an additional 1 MHz may become available at 147 MHz
and BATC have already put in the case for narrow band DATV. The
RSGB and BATC are involved in the assesment process with Ofcom - for
the latest updates see the BATC forum page.
