(*) In those Region 1 countries where 52 - 54 MHz (or parts thereof) is allocated, its use should be planned on the basis of up to 4 x 500 kHz blocks which may be sub-divided to suit digital applications. Amateurs using digital transmission methods must also ensure that their transmissions do not spread beyond band edges.
