A new footnote allocates this band to the amateur and amateur-satellite services on a secondary basis.

Relevant footnote

In the European Common allocation Table:

EU35: The band 75.5-76 GHz is in Europe also allocated to the Amateur and Amateur Satellite services.

Provided countries recognise EU35, amateur activities can therefore continue in the 75.5-76 GHz band after 2006.

Note: The band 76-77 GHz includes automotive cruise control radar and that 79 GHz (77-81) has been designated as the long term band for wideband automotive short range radar (SRR79G) - which resulted in EU35 being granted
