FOOTNOTES:

1.    CW is permitted on all frequencies but is exclusive where shown.
2.    Digimode refers to the digital modes RTTY, AMTOR and Packet (including new systems like PACTOR andCLOVER).
3.    NB (narrow band) includes all digital modes.
4.    RTTY includes all digital modes.
5.    Some operating frequencies may not be allowed in certain countries or may be shared on a secondary basis.

Member societies should advise operators not to transmit on frequencies between 29.3 and 29.51 MHz to
avoid interference to amateur satellite downlinks.

Preferred NBFM operating frequencies on each 10 kHz from 29.110 to 29.290 MHz inclusive should be used.
A deviation of 2.5 kHz being used with 2.5 kHz as maximum modulation frequency.

PURPOSE OF THE IARU BANDPLANS

The IARU bandplans have been compiled and modified over the years to reflect changes in operating requirements and are to be used as a guideline by the individual societies of each country. Unique situations in certain countries may require slight modification to that individual country's own bandplan but the impact of any changes must take into consideration their effect on other countries.

These bandplans are voluntary and as such cannot legally be enforced, except in some countries in which the bandplans are written into the national regulations. The vast majority of amateurs in all countries do conform to the IARU bandplans and it is in our own interest that it should continue to be this way. The plans are prepared in a democratic way with input from any country's member society. The plans are discussed, modified and voted upon at IARU Regional General Assemblies with each country (large or small) having only one vote. If an individual or group is not satisfied with the bandplans as they are and has a suggestion for improvement then he should submit it, with as much documentation as possible, to his IARU member society.

IARU bandplans are for your benefit and have withstood the test of time for over sixty years.
