ARRL has revised and updated its “US Amateur Radio Bands” charts, and these now are available for download. These are PDF documents, available in color or grayscale presentations.
The revised charts reflect the new 630- and 2,200-meter bands, but also emphasize that these bands are not yet available for Amateur Radio use. The effective date of the recent FCC Report & Order granting these allocations has not yet been determined, and until the start date has been set, it is not legal under an Amateur Radio license to transmit on either band.
The FCC will publish a notice in The Federal Register “announcing such approval and the relevant effective date.” ARRL will announce the UTC notification procedures and the effective date to use these new bands as soon as these are known. At that time, ARRL will update the Amateur Radio frequency charts at that time.
