RSGB Band Plan (effective from 1st January 2009)
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.
5.7 GHz (6cm)                                                                             UK Usage
IARU Recommendation    
5,650.000-5,668.000 MHz    
Satellite uplinks Amateur Satellite Service - Earth to Space only
5,650.000-5,670.000 5,668.200 MHz   Alternative centre of activity
Narrow band 5,668.8 MHz     Beacons
All modes

LICENCE NOTES:   Amateur Service: 5,650-5,680 MHz - Secondary User.
                                  5,755-5,765 and 5,820-5,850 MHz - Secondary User: Users must accept interference from ISM users.
                                  Amateur Satellite Service: 5,650-5,670 MHz and 5,830-5,850 MHz - Secondary User: Users must accept 
                                  interference from ISM users.  
                                  Unattended operation is permitted for remote control, digital modes and beacons, except in the sub-bands
                                  5,670-5,680 MHz within 50 km of SS206127 (Bude) and SE202577 (Harrogate).  
                                  ISM = Industrial, scientific and medical
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.
