July 31, 2020 Result of Appeal for Opinions on a Draft Partial Amendment to the Notice to Define the Symbols that Indicate Types of Modulation Used by Amateur Radio Stations
The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) made an appeal for opinions from Saturday, April 25 through Friday, May 29, 2020, for a partial amendment to a notice related to the Radio Act to simplify the licensing procedure for amateur radio. In response, 86 opinions were submitted. Accordingly, MIC has decided to open the opinions to the public, along with MIC’s views on the opinions.
1. Background and overview
The Frequency Reorganization Action Plan (revised version of 2019) was announced in September 2019. Based on this, MIC made an appeal for opinions from Saturday, January 18 through Monday, February 17, 2020, on a draft amendment to the notice and related conditions to make partial changes to the Frequency Allocation Plan (MIC Notice No. 471 of 2012) on a frequency band of amateur radio stations.
With consideration of the opinions received at that time, MIC has drafted the draft revision to the notice to the Radio Act to simplify the licensing procedure for newly performing voice and other audio communications in the 1.9 MHz band.
2. Future plans
With consideration of the result of the appeal for opinions, MIC will promptly revise the Notice to Define the Symbols that Indicate Types of Modulation Used by Amateur Radio Stations (MIC Notice No. 127 of 2011).
