Different category of service: in Albania, Algeria, Germany, Andorra, Saudi Arabia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Belgium, Benin, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Botswana, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cyprus, Vatican, Congo (Rep. of the), Côte d'Ivoire, Croatia, Denmark, Egypt, Spain, Estonia, Finland, France and French overseas departments and communities in Region 1, Gabon, Georgia, Greece, Guinea, Hungary, Ireland, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kuwait, Lesotho, Latvia, The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Malawi, Mali, Malta, Morocco, Mauritania, Moldova, Monaco, Mongolia, Montenegro, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Norway, Oman, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, the Syrian Arab Republic, Slovakia, Czech Rep., Romania, United Kingdom, San Marino, Senegal, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Slovenia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Swaziland, Chad, Togo, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, Zambia and Zimbabwe, the band 3 400-3 600 MHz is allocated to the mobile, except aeronautical mobile, service on a primary basis subject to agreement obtained under No. 9.21 with other administrations and is identified for International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT). This identification does not preclude the use of this band by any application of the services to which it is allocated and does not establish priority in the Radio Regulations. At the stage of coordination the provisions of Nos. 9.17 and 9.18 also apply. Before an administration brings into use a (base or mobile) station of the mobile service in this band, it shall ensure that the power flux-density (pfd) produced at 3 m above ground does not exceed 􀃭154.5 dB(W/(m2 ⋅ 4 kHz)) for more than 20% of time at the border of the territory of any other administration. This limit may be exceeded on the territory of any country whose administration has so agreed. In order to ensure that the pfd limit at the border of the territory of any other administration is met, the calculations and verification shall be made, taking into account all relevant information, with the mutual agreement of both administrations (the administration responsible for the terrestrial station and the administration responsible for the earth station), with the assistance of the Bureau if so requested. In case of disagreement, the calculation and verification of the pfd shall be made by the Bureau, taking into account the information referred to above. Stations of the mobile service in the band 3 400-3 600 MHz shall not claim more protection from space stations than that provided in Table 21-4 of the Radio Regulations (Edition of 2004). This allocation is effective from 17 November 2010. (WRC-07)

5.432B Different category of service: in Bangladesh, China, India, Iran (Islamic Republic of), New Zealand, Singapore and French overseas communities in Region 3, the band 3 400-3 500 MHz is allocated to the mobile, except aeronautical mobile, service on a primary basis, subject to agreement obtained under No. 9.21 with other administrations and is identified for International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT). This identification does not preclude the use of this band by any application of the services to which it is allocated and does not establish priority in the Radio Regulations.

Relevant Articles in the Radio Regulations


9.6        Before an administration notifies to the Bureau or brings into use a
frequency assignment in any of the cases listed below, it shall effect coordination, as required, with other administrations identified under No. 9.27

Examples:

9.17      for any specific earth station or typical mobile earth station in frequency bands above 100 MHz allocated with equal rights to space and terrestrial services, in respect of terrestrial services, where the coordination area of the earth station includes the territory of another country, with the exception of the coordination under No. 9.15

9.18      for any transmitting station of a terrestrial service in the bands referred to in
No. 9.17 within the coordination area of an earth station, in respect of this earth station, with the exception of the coordination under Nos. 9.16 and 9.19

9.21 for any station of a service for which the requirement to seek the agreement
of other administrations is included in a footnote to the Table of Frequency
Allocations referring to this provision.

 

Articles in the Radio Regulations relevant to the procedural elements of co-ordination

9.28      In the case of requests for coordination under No. 9.29, the requesting administration shall, by applying the calculation method and criteria contained in Appendix 5 to those frequency assignments, identify, to the extent possible, the administrations with which coordination is to be effected.

9.29      Request for coordination made under Nos. 9.15 to 9.19 shall be sent by the requesting administration to the identified administrations, together with the appropriate information listed in Appendix 4 to the Regulations.

9.30      Requests for coordination made under Nos. 9.7 to 9.14 and 9.21 shall be sent by the requesting administration to the Bureau, together with the appropriate information listed in Appendix 4 to these Regulations.

9.31      The information sent under No. 9.29 shall also, in the cases covered by Nos. 9.15, 9.17 or 9.17A, include a copy of diagrams drawn to appropriate scale indicating, for both transmission and reception, the location of the earth station and its associated coordination area, or the coordination area related to the service area in which it is intended to operate the mobile earth station, and the data on which the diagrams are based. In respect of terrestrial stations, in the cases covered by Nos. 9.16, 9.18 and 9.19 the information shall include the locations of terrestrial stations within the coordination area of the relevant earth station.

9.32A    If the responsible administration, following the application of Nos. 9.15 to 9.19, concludes that coordination is not required, it may send the relevant information pursuant to Appendix 4 to the Bureau for action under Section I of Article 11.

9.33      If for any reason an administration cannot act in accordance with No. 9.29, it shall seek the assistance of the Bureau. The Bureau shall then send the request for coordination to the administration concerned and take any necessary further action as appropriate under Nos. 9.45 and 9.46.

9.45      An administration receiving a request for coordination under No. 9.29 shall, within 30 days from the date of the request, acknowledge receipt by telegram to the requesting administration. In the absence of an acknowledgement of receipt of its request within the 30 days, the requesting administration shall send a telegram requesting an acknowledgement.

9.46      If there is no acknowledgement of receipt within 15 days of its second request sent under No. 9.45, the requesting administration may seek the assistance of the Bureau. In this event, the Bureau shall forthwith send a telegram to the administration which has failed to reply requesting an immediate acknowledgement.

9.47      If there is no acknowledgement of receipt within 30 days after the Bureau’s action under No. 9.46, it shall be deemed that the administration which has failed to acknowledge receipt has undertaken:

9.48 – a)           that no complaint will be made in respect of any harmful interference affecting its own assignments which may be caused by the assignment for which coordination was requested; and

9.49 – b)           that the use of its own assignments will not cause harmful interference to the assignment for which coordination was requested.

11.25    Notices relating to assignments to stations in space services, and to terrestrial stations involved in coordination with a satellite network, shall reach the Bureau not earlier than three years before the assignments are brought into use.

§6 e) iii) of Appendix 5       to bring into use a new frequency assignment to a receiving earth station and the notifying administration states that it accepts the interference resulting from existing and future terrestrial station assignments or assignments of earth stations operating in the opposite direction of transmission. In such case, administrations responsible for the terrestrial stations of earth stations operating in the opposite direction of transmission are not required to apply the provisions of No, 9.18 or 9.17A of Article 9 respectively.
