The 60 Meter DX Group reports that Swedish Post and Telecom is issuing temporary (6-month) “experimental” licenses for access to 5,351.5-5,366.5 kHz, replacing four channels, 5,310, 5,320, 5,380, and 5,390 kHz. There is a fee. The WRC-15 recommendations regarding 5 MHz have not yet been implemented, but that may happen by January 2018, when the next national band plan is released. In the interim, apparently anyone, even non-hams, can apply for an experimental license. Sweden’s experimental band permits 15 W EIRP.
In Denmark, radio amateurs now have “VFO access” to 5,250-5,450 kHz, all modes, at a maximum power of 1 kW at the antenna feed point.
In Finland, radio amateurs will gain access to 5,351.5 to 5,366.5 kHz starting on January 1, 2017, with 15 W EIRP. Special licenses now valid will continue in effect until the end of the license term.
In Dominica, Walter Aebi, HB9WTA, is active until February 2017 as J79WTA. Luxembourg, Latvia, Belarus, and Andorra recently announced Amateur Radio access — or revisions to amateur access — to 60 meters. — Thanks to The Daily DX and the 5 MHz Newsletter
