RSGB Band Plan January 2024

RSGB Band Plan (effective from 1st January 2024) The following band plan is largely based on that agreed at IARU Region 1 General Conferences with some local differences on on frequencies above 430 MHz. 1.3 GHz (23cm) Necessary UK Usage Bandwidth 1240.000-1240.500 2700Hz Alternative narrowband segment - see Note 7 1240.00-1240.750 MHz 1240.500-1240.750 Alternative Propagation Beacon Segment 1240.750-1241.000 20kHz FM/DV Repeater Inputs 1241.000-1241.750 150 kHz DD High Speed Digital Data - 5 x 150kHz channels All modes 1241.075, 1241.225, 1241.375, 1241.525, 1241.675 MHz (+/- 75 kHz) 1241.750-1242.000 20kHz 25 kHz Channels available for FM/DV use All modes 1241.775-1241.975 MHz 1242.000-1249.000 TV Repeaters (Note 9) ATV New DATV repeater inputs (Note-10) Original ATV repeater inputs: 1248, 1249 1249.000-1249.250 20kHz FM/DV Repeater Outputs, 25kHz channels (Note 9) 1249.025-1249.225 MHz 1250.00 In order to prevent interference to Primary Users, caution must be exercised prior to using 1250-1290MHz in the UK 1,260.000-1,270.000 Amateur Satellite Service - Earth to Space uplinks only Satellites 1290.00 1290.994-1291.481 20 kHz FM/DV Repeater Inputs (Note-5) 1291.000-1291.375 MHz (RM0-RM15) 25 kHz spacing 1291.494-1296.000 All Modes All modes Preferred narrowband segment 1296.000-1296.150 500 Hz 1296.000-1296.025 MHz Moonbounce Telegraphy, MGM 1296.150-1296.800 2700 Hz 1296.200 MHz Narrow band centre of activity Telegraphy,SSB 1296.400-1296.600 MHz Linear transponder input and MGM 1296.500 MHz Image Mode Centre of Activity (SSTV, Fax etc) (Note 1) 1296.600 MHz Narrowband Data Centre of Activity (MGM, RTTY etc) 1296.600-1296.700 MHz Linear transponder output 1296.741-1296.743 MHz Personal Weak Signal MGM Beacons 1296.750-1296.800 MHz Local Beacons, 10W erp max 1296.800-1296.994 1296.800-1296.990 MHz Propagation Beacons only Beacons exclusive 1296.994-1297.481 20 kHz FM/DV Repeater Outputs (Note-5) 1297.000-1297.375 MHz (RM0-RM15) 1297.494-1297.981 20 kHz FM/DV Simplex (Note-5)(Note-6) 25 kHz spacing 1297.500-1297.750 MHz (SM20-SM30) FM/DV simplex 1297.725 MHz Digital Voice (DV) Calling (IARU recommended) (Notes 2, 5, 6) 1297.900-1297.975 MHz FM Internet voice gateways (IARU common channels, 25kHz) 1298.000-1299.000 20 kHz All Modes All modes General mixed analogue or digital use in channels 1298.025-1298.975 MHz (RS1-RS39) 1299.000-1299.750 150 kHz DD High Speed Digital Data - 5 x 150kHz channels All modes 1299.075, 1299.225, 1299.375, 1299.525, 1299.675 MHz (+/- 75 kHz) 1299.750-1300.000 20 kHz 25 kHz Channels available for FM/DV use All modes 1299.775-1299.975 MHz 1300.000-1325.000 TV repeaters (UK only) (Note 9) ATV New DATV repeater outputs (Note-10) Original ATV repeater outputs: 1308.0, 1310.0, 1311.5, 1312.0, 1316.0, 1318.5 MHz Note 1: Local traffic using narrow band modes should operate between 1296.500-1296.800 MHz during contests and band openings. Note 2: Stations in countries that do not have access to 1298-1300 MHz may also use the FM simplex segment for digital communications. Note 5: Embedded data traffic is allowed with digital voice (DV) Note 6: Simplex use only - no DV gateways Note 7: 1240.000-1240.750 has been designated by IARU as an alternative centre for narrowband activity and beacons Operations in this range should be on a flexible basis to enable coordinated activation of this alternate usage Note 8: The band 1240-1300MHz is subject to major replanning. Contact the Microwave Manager for further information Note 9: Repeaters and Migration to DATV, inc option for new DATV simplex are subject to further development and coordination Note-10: QPSK 4 Mega-symbols/second maximum recommended LICENCE NOTES : Amateur Service: Secondary User: Amateur Satellite Service: 1,260-1,270 MHz: Secondary User Earth to Space only: Note specific conditions within 1240-1325MHz and within 50km of SS206127 (Bude), SE202577 (Harrogate), or in Northern Ireland.
