Consultation on NFAP (2009-2010)

By determination of 23 December 2009, ANACOM has given approval to the draft revision of the National Frequency Allocation Plan (NFAP), 2009/2010 edition.

Besides some editorial corrections, this new version of the NFAP involves updates to the allocation table to include new decisions from the ECC (Electronic Communications Committee) and EC (European Commission), to the information on the use of frequency bands with reference to 15 July 2009, as well as to the information on the spectrum available to various radiocommunication services and the contents of the annex on equipment using Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology. Alterations have also been made to the annexes on equipment exempt from licensing and on the amateur and amateur satellite service.
