2 m/70 cm Band Plan Review 2022

NZART has commenced a review of the 2 m and 70 cm band plans to refresh them with the various modes available today, and to ensure that interference between different groups is minimised. We are seeking volunteers/representatives that use 2 m and 70 cm bands. It is expected the review should take three months, and be completed before the AGM in September. The goal is to ensure the band plans accommodate the various uses without interference, and are robust to last into the future.

World Amateur Radio Day: 18 April 2022

Every 18 April, radio amateurs worldwide take to the airwaves in celebration of World Amateur Radio Day. It was on this day in 1925 that the International Amateur Radio Union was formed in Paris. Amateur Radio experimenters were the first to discover that the short wave spectrum — far from being a wasteland — could support worldwide propagation. In the rush to use these shorter wavelengths, Amateur Radio was “in grave danger of being pushed aside,” the IARU’s history has noted. Amateur Radio pioneers met in Paris in 1925 and created the IARU to support Amateur Radio worldwide. Today, Amateur Radio is more popular than ever, with more than 3,000,000 licensed operators! World Amateur Radio Day is the day when IARU Member-Societies can show our capabilities to the public and enjoy global friendship with other Amateurs worldwide.
