Updated ARRL 'US Amateur Radio Bands' Charts Now Available:

ARRL has revised and updated its "US Amateur Radio Bands" charts, and these are now available for download These are PDF documents, available in color or grayscale presentations. The revised allocations charts reflect the new 630- and 2,200-meter bands, but also emphasize that these bands are not yet available for Amateur Radio use.

The effective date of the recent FCC Report & Order granting these allocations has not yet been determined. Until the FCC sets a start date, it is not legal under an Amateur Radio license to transmit on either band. The FCC will publish a notice in The Federal Register "announcing such approval and the relevant effective date." ARRL will announce the UTC notification procedures and the effective date to use these new bands as soon as these are known.

ARRL will update the Amateur Radio frequency charts at that time. These reference guides are available for purchase in 11 x 17 and 8.5 x 11 formats in packs of 50 from the ARRL Store. Both include an ARRL Worked All States (WAS) map on the reverse side.
