'RSM have extended the one year 60m trial for a further six months to give more time for information gathering. If you already hold a sub-licence from NZART you do not need to do anything. The trial will now finish on 24 January 2020.
If you wish to take part in the trial please see the links to the right for the Frequently asked questions and application form for the special trial license.
NZART is pleased to announce that it has negotiated with RSM and the NZ Defence Force to obtain a licence to allow limited operation by ZL amateur operators on 60m on a trial basis.
The purpose of the trial is for RSM, NZART and primary users to investigate the ability for the amateur radio operators to operate on the frequencies of operation on a secondary basis without causing interference to primary users.
As the licence is held by NZART and the GURL which covers amateur bands does not include 60m, those who wish to operate on the band must complete and sign a sub-licence form which sets out the terms of operation and return it to NZART.
This is then to be scanned and emailed to Debby at NZART: email@example.com. Please check that you fill out the entire form, including 'Schedule A' on the third page to avoid delays in processing.
Once she acknowledges receipt you can begin operation. Operation centres on 5353 kHz and 5362 - 5364 kHz with a maximum output of 10 dBW e.i.r.p.
Once you have this acknowledgement you will also have your Callsign and Name listed on the sub-licence holders list linked to the right.
There are some FAQs linked to the right which we strongly suggest you read before you start to ensure you stay within the rules.
