|The DARC reports some amateurs have been operating in the 5 MHz band when visiting Portugal but such operation is only permitted with a special authorization |
A translation of the DARC post reads:
José, CT1EEB, RF Officer for the Portuguese Amateur Radio Federation, noted that foreign stations were observed using the 60 m band as part of their CEPT license (CT7 /, Portugal). However, operation in Portugal is only permitted with the special authorization of the Portuguese regulator ANACOM, as the band is shared with the military.
The WRC-15 frequencies and the still authorized older frequencies 5288.5 kHz, 5371.5 kHz, 5380.5 kHz and 5403.5 kHz are not covered by the CEPT licenses in Portugal. All stations that operate as a CT7 / Callsign / P radio, therefore, send illegally on the 60-m band, unless they have specifically received permission to do so. This also applies to CT8 (CEPT licenses for the Azores) and CT9 (CEPT licenses for Madeira). The DARC-HF-speaker Tom Kamp, DF5JL informs about this.
