A new ruling has been issued from the German regulator “BNetza” for the German amateur radio service. Temporary admission will be granted to 70.150 - 70.180 MHz, from 2 May to 31 August 2018. This ruling will be will be published on 2.5.2018 in the Official Journal No 8/2018, under Notice 93/2018.
It is expected that the same restrictions will apply as in previous years - 25W maximum, home station only (no portable operation), Mandatory logging of ALL transmissions and horizontally polarised antennas only.
So no SOTA activations in Germany on 4m (same as 6m) but chasers will be there if anyone is out for a 70MHz activity evening and Sporadic E comes along.
