After the last reports and slides received by the author, it seems that radio amateurs will lose the 23 cm band in the near future. That is the reason for this late proposal. We can be optimistic, but more than a small piece of spectrum for near band communication will not survive. Also the enthusiastic testing with ATV on 70 cm is not a replacement for 23 cm, because this will cause disturbance to our amateur satellites and all cars will stay locked if the ISM band is used. Proposal: Radio amateurs need a new allocation like MHz for the agenda of the World Radio Conference WRC so that amateurs get back spectrum near the existing 23 cm band. Up until now there have only been four Galileo test satellites in orbit which have been used to validate the system.
They are very different to the HF ham radio bands in their character, but this means that they provide a different challenge and a different area of interest within the hobby of amateur radio. The UHF ham radio bands are very convenient to use. Antennas are small and amateur radio equipment for the UHF bands is compact and widely available. This means that it is easy to set up and install a station in most areas, and many people even have a small ham radio station in their car. The actual allocations vary between one country and the next, and also the different radio regions.
The 23 centimeter , MHz or 1. The amateur radio band is between MHz and MHz. The amateur satellite band is between MHz and MHz, and its use by satellite operations is only for up-links on a non-interference basis to other radio users ITU footnote 5. The allocations are the same in all three ITU regions.
