Iceland’s Amateur Radio Association (IRA) reports that the Telecommunications Authority (Fjarskiptastofa) has approved an application to renew its permit for amateur radio use from 1850 – 1900 kHz in 2022.
The permit also covers contests such as the ARRL International DX Competition in CW and SSB and the IARU HF World Championship on 9 and 10 July 2022.
The approval is with the full consent of the Icelandic Maritime Watch Centre, which has priority for the use of frequencies in this band. The same requirements apply to this use as for the 1810 – 1850 kHz frequency range, but the following restrictions apply:
Licensing will only be granted during the specified international competitions. G‑licensees may use the full power up to 1 kW. N‑licensees enjoy the same frequency rights, but the power limit is based on a maximum of 10 W.
