Broadcasting Stations Are Moving Away From 7100-7200 KHz

Postby vu2jos » Tue Mar 24, 2009 4:44 pm

From 29 March 2009, All India Radio (AIR) and other broadcasting stations will be moving away from the 7100-7200 kHz band as per WRC 2003 decisions to pave the way for extension of the 40 Meter Amateur Band. The old and new frequencies of AIR is as follows.




Old kHz   Station   New kHz

  • 7105  Lucknow   7440

  • 7115  Port Blair   7390
  • 7120  Jaipur   7325
  • 7130  Shillong   7315
  • 7140  Hyderabad   7420

  • 7150  Imphal   7335
  • 7160  Chennai   7380
  • 7180  Bhopal   7430


These frequencies are used at various times in day time, say from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm. The frequencies between 7100 to 7120 kHz were used by AIR and other broadcast stations for decades and used to help me (and others?) as beacons to tune to the 40 meter Amateur Band while using old analog radios when I was an SWL many years back.




Let us hope that the WPC allots the 7100-7200 kHz segment to Indian Hams at the earliest.
