Executive summary

The ACMA is seeking comment from interested stakeholders on proposed changes to planning arrangements to support the implementation of the 803–960 MHz band review (the Review). The ACMA is proposing to release a new Radiocommunications Assignment and Licensing Instruction (RALI):

  • RALI FX[new] – Frequency Assignment Requirements for the Fixed Service in the 800 MHz Band

Update the following planning documents:

  • RALI MS 40 – Frequency Plan for Services in the 800 MHz Band (803–890 MHz)
  • RALI FX 11 – Studio to Transmitter Links and Sound Outside Broadcasting Services in the 900 MHz Band
  • Embargo 64.

The proposed changes will, in effect, open the three-year transition window to move single frequency fixed links in the 849–852 MHz segment to the 845–849 MHz segment.

This is the first iteration of the implementation of the Review outcomes. Further incremental changes will be made to various planning documents in accordance with the transitional milestones as detailed in the decision paper, The ACMA’s long-term strategy for the 803–960 MHz band.
