    RASA review VK 30m band plan

    RASA (Radio Amateur Society of Australia) has initiated a review of the Australian 30m band plan.

    Australia is one of the only countries that permits SSB operation on 30m.

    The existing band plan has SSB operation between 10125-10135 kHz, whilst digital uses 10130-10150 kHz.

    This overlap is causing QRM between SSB and digital operators, particularly for the most popular digital mode, FT8 – which uses 10136 kHz.

    It is proposed to shift SSB operation down 5 kHz: 10120-130 kHz – this alleviates the QRM whilst still leaving sufficient space for CW operation.

    Feedback has been uniformly positive to date.

    Comments can be sent to info@vkradioamateurs.org

    RASA have written to the Wireless Institute of Australia to ensure a joint approach to the review.

    I think that the entire 30m band (all 50khz) should remain Digital & CW only, Worldwide. What's next? contest operating on 30m? - JMHO
