“THE military yesterday defended its right to the 50-54-megahertz band for security purposes during a public hearing on the revised telecom and broadcasting spectrum master plan by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC).
About 500 attended the hearing, of whom half were Air Force, Royal Thai Army, and Royal Thai Navy personnel. A highlight of the revised plan was the reallocation of the 50-54MHz band to the military for national-security purposes. Under the original master plan, the band was designated for radio amateurs.
