50Mhz Band Plan

RSGB Band Plan (effective from 1st January 2015)
The following band plan is largely based on that agreed at IARU Region 1 General Conferences with some local differences on
on frequencies above 430 MHz.
50 MHz (6m) Necessary UK Usage
Bandwidth
50.000-50.100 500 Hz Telegraphy Only (except for Beacon Project) Note-2
50.000-50.030 MHz reserved for future Synchronised Beacon Project (Note 2)
Region-1: 50.000-50.010; Region-2: 50.010-50.020; Region-3: 50.020-50.030
50.050 MHz   Future International Centre of Activity
50.090 MHz   Intercontinental DX Centre of Activity (Note 1)
50.100-50.200 2.7 kHz SSB/Telegraphy – International Preferred
50.100-50.130 MHz Intercontinental DX Telegraphy & SSB (Note 1)
50.110 MHz   Intercontinental DX Centre of Activity
50.130-50.200 MHz General International Telegraphy & SSB
50.150 MHz   International Centre of Activity
50.200-50.300 2.7 kHz SSB/Telegraphy – General Usage
50.285 MHz   Crossband Centre of Activity
50.300-50.400 2.7 kHz MGM/Narrowband/Telegraphy
50.305 MHz   PSK Centre of Activity
50.310-50.320 MHz   EME
50.320-50.380 MHz   MS
50.400-50.500 Propagation Beacons Only
50.401 MHz   WSPR beacons +/- 500Hz
50.500-52.000 12.5 kHz All Modes.
50.510 MHz SSTV (AFSK)
50.520 MHz   Internet voice gateway (10 kHz channels), (IARU common channel)
50.530 MHz   Internet voice gateway (10 kHz channels), (IARU common channel)
50.540 MHz   Internet voice gateway (10 kHz channels), (IARU common channel)
50.550 MHz   Image/Fax working frequency
50.600 MHz   RTTY (FSK)
50.620-50.750 MHz   Digital communications
50.630 MHz   Digital Voice (DV) calling
50.710-50.890 MHz   FM/DV Repeater Outputs (10 kHz channel spacing)
51.210-51.390 MHz   FM/DV Repeater Inputs (10 KHz channel spacing) (Note 4)
51.410-51.590 MHz   FM/DV Simplex (Note 3) (Note 4)
51.510 MHz FM calling frequency
51.530 MHz   GB2RS news broadcast and slow morse
51.650 & 51.750 MHz   See Note 5 (25kHz aligned)
51.770 & 51.790 MHz   See Note 5
51.810-51.990 MHz. FM/DV Repeater Outputs (IARU aligned channels)
Note 1: Only to be used between stations in different continents (not for intra-European QSOs).
Note 2: 50.0-50.1MHz is currently shared with Propagation Beacons. These are due to be migrated by Aug-2014
               to 50.4-50.5 MHz, to create more space for Telegraphy and a new Synchronised Beacon Project
Note 3: 20 kHz channel spacing. Channel centre frequencies start at 51.430 MHz.
Note 4: Embedded data traffic is allowed with digital voice (DV)
Note 5: May be used for Emergency Communications and Community Events
LICENCE NOTES: Amateur Service 50.0-51.0 MHz – Primary User.
                               Amateur Service 51.0-52.0 MHz – Secondary User: Available on the basis on non-interference
                               to other services (inside or outside the UK).
