ARRL Files Petition for Rulemaking with FCC to Create New MF Band at 472-479 kHz:
At the 2012 World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-12), delegates
approved a means of satisfying Agenda Item 1.23: a 7-kilohertz-wide
secondary allocation between 472-479 kHz for the Amateur Radio Service,
with a power limit of 5 W EIRP (or 1 W EIRP, depending on location).
Before this portion of spectrum is made available to radio amateurs in
the US, the FCC must first approve its use and amend its rules to
reflect the change. As such, the ARRL filed a Petition for Rulemaking
on November 29, asking the FCC to amend Parts 2 and 97 of its rules and
create a domestic Amateur Radio allocation at 472-479 kHz, conforming
to the allocation status and limitations set forth in the international
Radio Regulations. Read more here
