Dave EI3IO reports
In a major spectrum consultation exercise launched by the Bahraini telecommunications regulator, the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA), seeks comments inter alia on whether all or parts of the band 69.95 - 70.5 MHz should be offered to the amateur service in Bahrain for propagation experiments. The consultation document (which also seeks comments on 500 kHz and 5 MHz) can be downloaded from http://www.tra.org.bh.
A new National Frequency Plan has also been published which allocates the band 50-50.5 MHz to the amateur service on a national primary basis and 50.5 - 52 MHz to the amateur service on a national secondary basis. New arrangements are also included for 136 kHz, 1.8 MHz 7 MHz and 430 MHz.
