Allocations, promulgated in December 2009 to incorporate changes
arising from decisions taken at World Radiocommunication Conference

Footnote 5.67A. The Footnote states: “Stations in the amateur service using frequencies in the band 135.7-137.8 kHz shall not exceed a maximum radiated power of 1 W (EIRP) and shall not cause harmful
