The issue

We are consulting on proposed arrangements to authorise the use of uncoordinated earth station receivers under class licensing arrangements in 2 frequency bands:

  • part of the 2 GHz band in the frequency range 2005–2010 MHz paired with the frequency range 2195–2200 MHz, a bandwidth of 2 x 5 MHz
  • the 28 GHz band in the frequency range 27.5 to 28.3 GHz.

To implement these arrangements, we propose to vary the Radiocommunications (Communication with Space Object) Class Licence 2015 as detailed in the draft Radiocommunications (Communication With Space Object) Class Licence Variation 2022 (No.1) and the accompanying consultation paper.
