21000-21450 kHz

The 15 meter band


IARU Spectrum Requirement

Retention of this important allocation, which is only barely adequate for amateur service needs, is absolutely essential.

Considerations

On the basis of congestion during daylight hours when the MUF exceeds 21 MHz, an expansion of this band by 50 kHz could be readily justified. However, in view of the greater importance of meeting other amateur service requirements that are as yet unfulfilled, such an expansion is not of the highest priority.
