RALI FX3: microwave fixed services

RALI FX3 provides the rules and procedures for coordinating the frequencies of fixed systems operating in bands between 1 and 50 GHz. 

The purpose of Radiocommunications Assignment and Licensing Instruction (RALI) FX3 Microwave Fixed Services Frequency Coordination is to:

  • help us and people who assign frequencies make the most efficient use of the spectrum for microwave fixed services
  • guide people who plan microwave systems and sell equipment

List of antenna models

RALI FX3 specifies the notional (minimum) antenna requirements for each of the microwave (fixed service) bands.

The ACMA has a list of antennas.
