UK to Sell Off 10 GHz Satellite Allocation



The United Kingdom regulator OFCOM has announced a consultation into the sell
off of 10.475 to 10.500 GHz. This is the top half of the Amateur Satellite
Service 10 GHz allocation.

Consultation - Award of available spectrum: 10 GHz, 28 GHz, 32 GHz and 40 GHz
http://www.ofcom.org.uk/consult/condocs/10ghz/ 

The full consultation document is at
http://www.ofcom.org.uk/consult/condocs/10ghz/spec_condoc.pdf 

The consultation document says 
"A6.31 As use is on a secondary basis a future spectrum access licensee will
not be obliged to protect the national Amateur use. Use by the Amateur Service
on a national basis would only be permitted where the Amateur licensee could be
confident of not causing interference to the spectrum access licensee."

The consultation document references on page 80 the AMSAT-NA web site.

Anyone can respond to the consultation - it is not restricted to UK nationals.
It is not necessary to answer all the questions in the response form (page 6).
A response to Question 1 that just related to 10 GHz would suffice.

Responses should go to Joe.sonke@ofcom.org.uk and the deadline is 7 September
2006.
