    Ofcom statement on 5725-5850 MHz

    Posted: 24 Jul 2020 08:37 AM PDT https://amsat-uk.org/2020/07/24/ofcom-statement-5725-5850-mhz/

    On Friday, July 24, Ofcom released their statement on 5725-5850 MHz and 5925-6425 MHz.

    The main points are:

    • Make 5925-6425 MHz available for Wi-Fi and other RLAN technologies

    • The release of this spectrum will also enable very low power (VLP)
    outdoor use

    • Remove the Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) requirements from channels used by Wi-Fi in the 5725-5850 MHz Amateur and Amateur Satellite Service allocation

    The Amateur Satellite Service weak-signal downlink band, 5830-5850 MHz, is
    used by amateur payloads on Deep-Space and Interplanetary spacecraft as
    well as by satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). Increased use of Wi-Fi
    across these frequencies could obliterate the weak amateur satellite

    In 2013 CEPT looked at increased use of 5725-5850 MHz
