(23 September 2015)

The BIPT council adapted the B10/F2 radio interfaces after a public consultation.

The most important changes of the decision of the BIPT council on radio interfaces:

1. Channel 38 available for PMSE.be with license.
The organization PMSE.be asks in response to the public consultation to assign channel 38 on an unlicensed basis, as compensation for the loss of channel 69. The BIPT wishes for the time being not to go in because there some control is needed on possible faults in Humain. On the other hand seems the use of channel 38 in Liege and Namur to be quite possible as far as the field strength of -20dBμV / m at Humain is not to exceeded.

2. 1492-1518 MHz available with license

3. 1800-1805 MHz available with license

4. 694-790MHz unavailable for PMSE in the future
BIPT council will assign 694-790 MHz to systems for the provision of public electronic communication services (LTE) systems. This allocation is expected by 2019/2020. The current broadcasters and PMSE allocations can continue to use the band until that date.
