    160 meter allocations

    Your chart is for amateur allocations in the U.S. (ITU Region 2)

    The main issue in this thread is about out of band operations in ITU Region 1, mainly Europe, in the frequency range 1800-1810 kHz, which is not allocated to amateurs in that region.

    Link? I can't find a source for this.

    Does anyone have a link to where these are written down other than members just repeating them?

    Those rules are not posted in the one link given: http://life.itu.ch/radioclub/rr/rindex.htm

    Thank you. I was just looking for a source. I understand how the IARU/ITU system works. The individual countries voluntarily agree to abide by the "suggested" band plan for the sake of organization, but they are then enforced as "rules" within the individual countries.

    Those are the "rules" in question.

    Not quite right. Countries involved in ITU sign up to do things per ITU. What that is the countries in ITU decide collectively. Countries still can do what they want, as long as what they allow to be done within their territory doesn't cause harmful interference to others elsewhere who are doing things per ITU.

    With allocations, ITU only concern itself at a higher level, for example in this case deciding in R1 that radiolocation is 1800-1810, amateur is 1810-whatever, etc. Any more structure than that (as in what type of emission can be used where) is entirely up to the individual country (most don't).

    The "rule" here is the ITU RR, which countries embraced by treaty & its provisions will be either referenced to or seen in countries' laws/regulations. Absolutely nothing to do with IARU.

    I'm confused. The amateur band runs from 1.800 to 2.000. So what's the problem in the 1.800 to 1.810 segment?

    Read the thread. This has been explained already. The amateur band is different in other countries.
