Following agreement with Ofcom, the RSGB is pleased to announce that a new much faster online process is now available for all Full Licensees to access the 70.5-71.5MHz experimental band.
Applications can now be made online for a new, annually-renewable Notice of Variation.
It works in a similar way to the 146-147MHz NoV.
This replaces the previous special research permit process and is expected to spur digital innovation at VHF.
Prospective applicants should ensure they read the supplementary information and must observe the NoV power and geographic restrictions.
