If you know of anything that needs updating, please email me direct, OFF-LIST: mailto: g3nrw-radio@ntlworld.com

LZ - Bulgaria 160m band extension by Danev, LZ1US

Latest from IARU R1 Bulgarian Rep Panayot Danev, LZ1US

New Amateur Bands in Bulgaria

New amateur bands have been allowed in Bulgaria. In the future LZ hams will be able to use bands 472-479 kHz, 5250-5450 kHz, 70.0-70.5 MHz. In addition 1.8 MHz band has been extended up to 2 MHz. All those bands have to be used on secondary basis.

Important note is coming from Paul, G4MWO (tnx) that they don't come into operation until published in their national government gazette!


Congrats to LZ guys and hope to meet on 60m band quite often.
