BAND PLAN

ITU Region 1

Table of Amateur MF and HF Bandplans

The following charts show the voluntary bandplans used by amateurs in Region 1. Unlike the USA, slots for the various transmission modes are not set by the amateur’s license but most users do follow these guidelines.

160 Metres

Note: 60 Meter band in Norway is 5260 – 5410 kHz, in Denmark 5250 – 5450 kHz.Danish stations have to apply for a special research-license and are limited to 1 kW ERP. Both countries can use VFO/allmode.

40 Metres

40 Metres 7000 7040 7040 7050 7050 7060 7060 7100 7100 7200 7200 7300
IARU Region 1
As of March, 2009, 7100-7200 were allocated to Amateur radio on a primary basis by ITU. Yet, there are countries that haven’t yet expanded their national Amateur radio service bandplan to cover that portion. In ITU region 2, 7200-7300 is allocated to amateur radio service as secondary.
