Coordination between fixed-satellite service earth station transmitters and fixed point-to-point links in the 6 and 6.7 GHz bands—Rationale and consultation paper
| Draft new RALI— Coordination between fixed-satellite service earth station transmitters and fixed point-to-point links in the 6 and 6.7 GHz bands
The ACMA is seeking comment on draft new Radiocommunications Assignment and Licensing Instruction (RALI) outlining frequency coordination requirements between microwave fixed point-to-point links and fixed satellite service (FSS) earth station transmitters.
As outlined in the Five-year spectrum outlook 2018-22 the initial focus is on coordination procedures for the 6 GHz (5,925–6,425 MHz) and 6.7 GHz (6,425−7,110 MHz) microwave fixed point-to-point bands and earth station transmitters communicating with geostationary satellite (GSO) systems in the FSS. Over time, the intention is to expand the coordination arrangements to include other microwave fixed point-to-point bands, earth station receivers and earth stations communicating with non-geostationary satellite (NGSO) systems.
This work was foreshadowed in the Spectrum planning framework—Frequency coordination requirements review work program released by the ACMA in September 2018.
Issue for comment
The ACMA welcomes comments from stakeholders on the proposed new RALI coordination between fixed-satellite service earth station transmitters and fixed point-to-point links in the 6 and 6.7 GHz bands.
