On the subject of Finnish 5 MHz changes, here is a recent update, as of Friday 9 th Dec.
Although originally expected to have a starting date of January 1 2017, in a surprise announcement on 9 December 2016, the Finnish communications authority, FICORA, issued a decision permitting access to the new WRC-15 60m allocation for all Finnish amateur licensees. The allocation is from 5351.5 to 5366.5 kHz on a Secondary basis with a maximum power of 15W EIRP. All modes are permitted.
Previously only Club stations had access to 60m in Finland, by means of applying for a limited-time special authorization permit to operate on seven 5 MHz channels with a maximum power of 50 Watts on USB only, the USB dial frequencies for these being 5288.6, 5298.6, 5330.6, 5346.6, 5366.6, 5371.6, and 5398.6 kHz.
Starting 9 December 2016, all licensees in Finland have access to the WRC-15 60m band. The special Club permits will continue to be valid but only until the end of their respective licence periods.
