Proposed updates to RALI MS 44
Consultation closes: 08 February 2019
After considering issues and suggestions raised in submissions, the ACMA has finalised updates to RALI MS 44.
A suggestion from submissions for different figures for notional Earth station antenna gain based on frequency range was adopted in the final version of RALI MS 44.
As a result of the finalisation of RALI MS 44, embargoes 49 and 72 have been revised. Specifically:
- Embargo 72 has been modified to remove the bands covered in RALI MS 44, meaning embargo 72 is now only applicable to the frequency ranges 2025–2110 MHz and 2200–2290 MHz.
- Similarly, the frequency ranges 3400–4200 MHz and 5850–6700 MHz have been removed from embargo 49 as coordination arrangements around the Mingenew site for these frequency ranges are covered in RALI MS 44.
The ACMA received four submissions to this consultation. These can be accessed from the right hand side index box under 'Other submissions received'.

Draft update to RALI MS 44–Frequency coordination procedures for the earth station protection zones
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) sought comment on proposed updates to Radiocommunications Assignment and Licensing Instruction (RALI) MS 44: Frequency coordination procedures for the earth station protection zones.
The proposed updates were to include additional frequency ranges in the frequency coordination procedures for earth station protection zones. The proposed updates supported the removal of those frequency ranges from spectrum embargo 72.
