ACMA releases an Australian Radiofrequency Spectrum Plan
The Australian Communications and Media Authority has released a new Australian Radiofrequency Spectrum Plan (the Spectrum Plan).
‘Types of services that will benefit from new spectrum allocations in the new Spectrum Plan include amateur, radiolocation, aeronautical, earth exploration-satellite and space research services,’ said Chris Cheah, Acting ACMA Chairman.
This should lead to additional spectrum for international mobile telecommunication, space research activities, radio astronomy, mobile-satellite services and improved sharing arrangements between space and future terrestrial services. These changes will come into effect on 1 January 2009.
The new Spectrum Plan is based on the spectrum arrangements developed by the International Telecommunication Union and incorporates changes made to international frequency allocations at the 2007 World Radiocommunication Conference.
Further information on the Spectrum Plan and associated Spectrum Chart, including acquiring a copy of Spectrum Plan and Spectrum Chart, is available on the ACMA website.
