The 5MHz (60 metres) band is one which seems to attract odd allocations and curious special conditions. The UK allocation is a set of “bandlets” (which makes finding overlapping bits with other countries’ allocations “fun”) available to Full licence holders only, and the special conditions in the schedule take most of a page. For example, one of them (item ix in note g) says "At a Temporary Location within the UK, the Licensee shall give the location of the Station every 30 minutes to an accuracy of at least 5km by a generally used identifier as indicated in Note (e) to the “Notes to the licence”. Giving a SOTA reference probably covers that. Giving a summit name probably does, too. Giving a Maidenhead locator certainly does. Another one (item x in note g) says “The Licensee shall only operate the Station to the extent that the Licensee can be contacted on a telephone which is located in close proximity to the Station.” Ofcom have my mobile number, so assuming there’s mobile coverage, I’ve got that one covered.
When operating elsewhere under CEPT, the local licence conditions apply, and as 5MHz wasn’t that widely available until quite recently I’ve chosen to use other more standard bands and avoid falling foul of licencing oddities like the ones above, but now bits of 5MHz are available in quite a few parts of the world, and with poor solar conditions it can be a useful band.
What peculiar licencing oddities applying to 5MHz might trip up visiting amateurs intending to operate under CEPT in other countries?
