RSGB Band Plan (effective from 1st January 2015)
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.
10 GHz (3cm) Necessary UK Usage
IARU Recommendation Bandwidth  
10,000.000-10,125.000 MHz   Note-4
All modes   10,065 MHz   ATV Repeater Outputs
All modes   10,240 MHz   ATV Repeaters  
Digital modes      
10,350.000-10,368.000   10,352.5-10,368 MHz       Wideband modes (Note-2)  
All modes      
10,368.000-10,370.000 2.7 kHz 10,368-10,370 MHz          Narrowband modes (Note-3)          
Narrowband telegraphy   10,368.1 MHz                     Centre of activity  
    10,368.750-10,368.800 MHz   Local Beacons, 10W erp max  
10,368.800-10,368.995   10,368.800-10,368.995 MHz   Propagation Beacons only  
Propagation Beacons      
10,370.000-10,450.000   10,371 MHz         Voice repeaters RX  
All modes   10,425 MHz         ATV Repeaters  
10,450.000-10,475.000   10,400-10,475 MHz         Unattended operation  
All modes and satellites   10,450-10,452 MHz         Alternative narrowband segment (Note-3)  
    10,471 MHz         Voice repeaters TX  
All modes and satellites   Amateur Satellite Service ONLY (Note-5)  
Note 1:   Deleted    
Note 2:   Wideband FM is preferred between 10,350-10,400 MHz to encourage compatibility with narrowband systems
Note 3:   10450 MHz is used as an alternative narrowband segment in countries where 10,368 MHz is not available
Note 4:   10,000-10,125 MHz is subject to increased Primary User utilisation and NoV restrictions
Note 5:   10,475-10,500 MHz is allocated ONLY to the Amateur Satellite Service and NOT to the Amateur Service.
LICENCE NOTES:   Amateur Service - Secondary User.        Foundation Licensees 1W max
                                  Amateur Satellite Service: 10,450-10,500 MHz - Secondary User.  
                                  Unattended operation is permitted for remote control, digital modes and beacons
                                  except in the sub-bands 10,000-10,125 MHz within 50 km of SO916223 (Cheltenham), 
                                  SS206127 (Bude), SK985640 (Waddington) and SE202577 (Harrogate).    
Notes to the Band Plan
ITU-R Recommendation SM.328 (extract)
Necessary bandwidth: For a given class of emission, the width of the frequency band which is just sufficient to 
ensure the transmission of information at the rate and with the quality required under specified conditions.
The use of Amplitude Modulation (AM) is acceptable in the all modes segments but users are asked to consider
adjacent channel activity when selecting operating frequencies. 
Foundation and Intermediate Licence holders are advised to check their licences for the permitted power limits and 
conditions applicable to their class of licence.
