23cm in danger !

Yep, the Germans want to take away the lot for all of us and give us a new band !

I waited 25 years just to get a bloody rig for it.

No doubt the RSGB will be as much as use a used tampon and just do whatever OFCOM says if CEPT says so.

That's just one of a few options likely to be considered.
The Amateur Service has existed as a secondary service on quite a few bands for many years. I remember much the same discussion 20 years ago about the 70cm allocation and it's still the same today.

I doubt any move away from 1240-1300Mhz would be straight away, as there's an international allocation, not just European.

Until the results of the investigation around any potential interference with Galileo have been properly digested and proven, I'd say it will be in the melting pot for quite a few years to come and any move away would be gradual.

Keep enjoying the band in the meantime

I’m just wondering what’s going through the minds of the French to propose 144-146MHz to become aeronautical data primary allocation?

Oh wait - hams only need a small allocation for FT8 and repeaters are unused, so no problem there!
