New OFCOM licence free allocation

Postby G4RMT » Thu Nov 08, 2018 12:37 pm

I see another big chunk has been added to the licence free spectrum, however, I'm not sure how many of us will find a use for it. 57-71G[u][/u]Hz. They are looking at 5G services, but that frequency, RF gets absorbed very quickly, I assume they're thinking about the links between cells? It's also odd that it's licence exempt, meaning anyone could use it - but I guess links are largely immune due to beam width and aiming accuracy? ~Considering they made lots of money from phone licences, a freebie seems a bit unusual?

It could make for some fun times. A small low power TX situated close to a RX & nothing anyone could do about it, as it's licence free & thus unprotected.
It would also make a very good & legal way to link a feed into a unlicensed broadcast TX. As at 57 plus GHZ, they would have to be on the TX site to stand a chance of DF'ing the feeder site.
