Additonal Frequencies on 2M for gateways
ETCC have agreed to reuse 4 channels in the 2 metre band for DV and FM gateways 144.8750 MHz DV gateway 144.8875 MHz DV gateway 144.9000 MHz Analogue gateway 144.9125 MHz Analogue gateway Preference initially is being given to applicants that have had their applications refused in the last few months because of the lack of spectrum in their area. It is hoped that these extra channels will help fill in some of the coverage gaps, although we realise that we will never be able to satisfy everyone's demands in areas of high amateur population. Please be considerate about applying if you already have access to a 2 metre/70cms repeater in your area. Thank you Steve G8SFR/F4VTF
