    Germany permits 50 MHz ham radio contest operation

    The DARC reports German radio amateurs are permitted to take part in Contest Operating in the 50 MHz band from May 1 until September 30

    A Google translation of the DARC post reads:

    With the order No. 64/2019 amateur radio service; Terms of use for the frequency range 50.08-51.00 MHz, the current Order No. 36/2006 is updated. The period in which the contest is not allowed to compete in the future is limited to the period from October 1 to April 30. German radio amateurs can therefore participate in contests in the 6-m season from the beginning of May to the end of September.

    With Communication 287/2019, the Contest Prohibition previously contained in Communication 34/2016 is now limited to the frequency range 50.03-50.08 MHz not included in Appendix 1 of the AFuV, thus allowing for contests above 50.080 MHz. The other provisions mentioned in the notification 287/2019 to 31.12.2019, such as waiver of operational notification and telephone availability, continue to apply until the end of the year 2019. The same applies to the permitted frequency range 50.03-51.00 MHz.

    This is reported by Ulrich Müller, DK4VW, from the DARC Department for Frequency Management in the Wuerttemberg Round Award No. 23/2019.

    No one has replied to this story, so why do the German hams not have normal 50 MHz access?

    50 to 54 MHz is not allocated to amateur radio in Region 1 (it's allocated to broadcasting). Each country has to make a special allowance.

    I like the IARU 'The Greatest Of Scientific Hobbies" slogan on their header, very interesting about 6 metre allocations in different countries, as 'they' say you learn something new everyday, cheers Geoff
