    Wireless Network Operator suggests to revoke Amateur Radio use on 9cm and 13cm bands in Brazil.

    Claiming interest to deploy LTE/5G technology on 2.3-2.4GHz (13cm band) and 3.4-3.5GHz (9cm band) Brazilian subsidiary of Telecom Italia - TIM Celular S.A. has suggested to the Brazilian National Telecommunication Agency - ANATEL to revoke Amateur Radio permission to operate on these bands and allocate them exclusively to commercial use in Brazil, if this passes and get ap proved through the current regulatory agency public consultation, HAMs operating Moon bounce, Satellites and other terrestrial communications and experiments will no longer be allowed to use these bands.

    In the US, there's already a cell phone band at 2.3 GHz. The frequencies are 2305 to 2320 MHz (handset uplink) and 2345 to 2360 MHz (tower downlink). It's also known as LTE band 30 and is available on most cell phones (for Apple, starting with the iPhone 6s). The 2305 to 2310 MHz segment overlaps with the Amateur Radio allocation at 2300 to 2310 MHz.

    Fortunately (at least for now), it's lightly used.

    Our privileges are worth fighting for; and if we don't work together as a world community, erosion of frequencies will continue. One of the last things I would hope to hear from any amateur radio operator is: "Well, it doesn't concern me." Rest assured, I will do everything I possibly can to fight against the bribery system known as commercial use.

    Sad formula that works.

    Sadly, that seems to be a popular modus operandi

    THIS is the type of affairs the ARRL should be addressing, not some silly antenna restriction that people willingly agree to.

    So true! Or buy a house 'next door' to the international airport, and complain about the noise. True story.

    The house was built a few years ago. The airport, in its current form, in 1960. The airport must relocate, they say.:rolleyes:

    As much as I oppose against loosing ham bands, shouldn't we be a bit more realistic? On HF, our bands occupy 450kHz max. On VHF mostly 2MHz and on UHF 10MHz max. So why would we need 100MHz on SHF bands? Try scanning such a range with your VFO knob, searching for activity...
