40 MHz in Spain

The Spanish Amateur Radio Union (URE), sensitive to The Spanish amateur radio operators’ growing interest in obtaining authorization to use frequencies in the 8 meter (40 MHz) band for the purpose of conducting experiments and research, and aware of the constant evolution in the field of communications, as well as of the importance of adapting regulations to encourage active and responsible participation of citizens, as the leading association defending the interests of its members and Spanish amateur radio amateurs in general, requested from the State Administration the authorisation of use of the aforementioned band.

After negotiations with the Spanish Telecommunications administration, today a Resolution of the Spanish Secretary of State for Telecommunications and Digital Infrastructures has been published, authorizing holders of Spanish amateur radio licenses to transmit, from fixed stations only, in the 40.650 – 40.750 MHz band, with a maximum peak envelope power (PEP) of 25 W, for a period of eighteen (18) months.
