The New Zealand Amateur Radio Frequency allocation at 13cm is 2396 to
2450 MHz.

This is essential "no change" since the 1989 issue of the "New Zealand table
of Radio Frequency Allocations" by the Administration. That document gives
the Amateur Radio allocation as 2400 to 2450 MHz.

This auction has a limited tenure, anything could happen in the future.
