Archived—Proposed Revisions to the Canadian Table of Frequency Allocations (2009 Edition)

Section F: Other Modifications to Canadian Table

F1 (AI 1.1) – Requests from Administrations to Delete Their Country Footnotes or to Have Their Country Name Deleted from Footnotes, if no Longer Required, in Accordance with Resolution 26 (Rev. WRC-97)

Resolution 26 (Rev. WRC-97) urges administrations to review footnotes periodically and to propose the deletion of their country footnotes or of their country names from footnotes, as appropriate. In exceptional cases, the Resolution provides that proposals for new footnotes or modifications of existing footnotes can be considered if they concern corrections of obvious omissions, inconsistencies, ambiguities or editorial error. Resolves 2 to Resolution 26 states that the International Table should include those footnotes that have international implications for the use of radio frequency spectrum.

Also, further resolves 1 to Resolution 26 permit the consideration of additions or modifications of footnotes, but only when they relate to the Conference agenda or if the Conference decides to include it in its agenda as a result of the consideration of proposals submitted by one or more interested administration(s).

Requests from other countries to modify footnotes currently included in the Canadian Table:

MOD 5.56  The stations of services to which the bands 14-19.95 kHz and 20.05-70 kHz and in Region 1 also the bands 72-84 kHz and 86-90 kHz are allocated may transmit standard frequency and time signals. Such stations shall be afforded protection from harmful interference. In Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, the Russian Federation, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, Slovakia, the Czech Rep., Tajikistan and Turkmenistan, the frequencies 25 kHz and 50 kHz will be used for this purpose under the same conditions. (WRC-073)
MOD 5.286D Additional allocation: in Canada, the United States, Mexico and Panama, the band 454-455 MHz is also allocated to mobile-satellite service (Earth-to-space) on a primary basis. (WRC-9707)
MOD 5.331 Additional allocation: in Algeria, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belarus, Belgium, Benin, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, China, Korea (Rep. of), Croatia, Denmark, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Estonia, the Russian Federation, Finland, France, Ghana, Greece, Guinea, Equatorial Guinea, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran (Islamic Republic of), Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Lesotho, Latvia, Lebanon, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritania, Montenegro, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, the Syrian Arab Republic, Dem. People's Rep. of Korea, Slovakia, the United Kingdom, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovenia, Somalia, Sudan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Togo, Turkey, Venezuela and Viet Nam, the band 1 215-1 300 MHz is also allocated to the radionavigation service on a primary basis. In Canada and the United States, the band 1 240-1 300 MHz is also allocated to the radionavigation service, and use of the radionavigation service shall be limited to the aeronautical radionavigation service. (WRC-037)

Requests from Canada to have its name added to some footnotes:

Noting the international implication and recognizing the importance of protecting the services concerned, the Government of Canada submitted the following proposals for inclusion on the Conference agenda. All of these proposals were subsequently adopted by WRC-07.

ADD 5.297  Additional allocation: in Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, El Salvador, the United States, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Jamaica and Mexico, the band 512-608 MHz is also allocated to the fixed and mobile services on a primary basis, subject to agreement obtained under No. 9.21. (WRC-07)

Discussion

Footnote No.5.297 will provide Canada with the flexibility for the possible future introduction of a wide range of applications (including mobile applications). It will also provide Canada with the opportunity to harmonize the use of this band in Region 2.

MOD 5.393 Additional allocation:in Canada, the United States, India and Mexico, the band 2 310-2 360 MHz is also allocated to the broadcasting-satellite service (sound) and complementary terrestrial sound broadcasting service on a primary basis. Such use is limited to digital audio broadcasting and is subject to the provisions of Resolution 528 (Rev. WRC-03), with the exception of resolves 3 in regard to the limitation on broadcasting-satellite systems in the upper 25 MHz(WRC-20007)
MOD 5.394 In the United States, the use of the band 2 300-2 390 MHz by the aeronautical mobile service for telemetry has priority over other uses by the mobile services. In Canada, the use of the band 2 30060-2 483.500 MHz by the aeronautical mobile service for telemetry has priority over other uses by the mobile services. (WRC-07)
MOD C13A (CAN-095) Additional Allocation: The band 2 320-2 345 MHz is also allocated designated to the broadcasting satellite service (sound) and complementary terrestrial broadcasting service on a primary basis. Spectrum utilization policies provide the inter-service relationship with respect to broadcasting service operation.

Discussion

Through the adoption of these modifications to No. 5.393, there is recognition of Canada's use of the broadcasting-satellite allocation for its satellite radio services (Sirius Canada and XM Canada).

Through the adoption of these modifications to No. 5.394 an alignment with Canada's domestic footnote C12 for aeronautical mobile telemetry applications in the 2.3 GHz range is made.

The provisions of No. 9.11A apply. (WRC-07)
SUP 5.409 Administrations shall make all practicable efforts to avoid developing new tropospheric scatter systems in the band 2 500-2 690 MHz. (WRC-07)
SUP 5.411 When planning new tropospheric scatter radio-relay links in the band 2 500-2 690 MHz, all possible measures shall be taken to avoid directing the antennae of these links towards the geostationary-satellite orbit.  (WRC-07)
MOD 5.517 In Region 2, the allocation to the broadcasting-satellite service in the band 17.3-17.8 GHz shall come into effect on 1 April 2007. After that date, use of the fixed-satellite (space-to-Earth) service in the band 17.7-17.8 GHz shall not claim protection from and shall not cause harmful interference to nor claim protection from operating systems assignments in the broadcasting-satellite service operating in conformity with the Radio Regulations.(WRC-07).
SUP 5.518 Different category of service: in Region 2, the allocation of the band 17.7-17.8 GHz to the mobile service is on a primary basis until 31 March 2007.  (WRC-07)
MOD 5.538 Additional allocation: the bands 27.500-27.501 GHz and 29.999-30.000 GHz are also allocated to the fixed-satellite service (space-to-Earth) on a primary basis for the beacon transmissions intended for up-link power control. Such space-to-Earth transmissions shall not exceed an equivalent isotropically radiated power (e.i.r.p.) of+10 dBW in the direction of adjacent satellites on the geostationary-satellite orbit. In the band 27.500-27.501 GHz, such space-to-Earth transmissions shall not produce a power flux-density in excess of the values specified in Article 21, Table 21-4 on the Earth's surface. (WRC-07)
MOD 5.547 The bands 31.8-33.4 GHz, 37-40 GHz, 40.5-43.5 GHz, 51.4-52.6 GHz, 55.78-59 GHz and 64-66 GHz are available for high-density applications in the fixed service (see Resolutions 75 (WRC-2000) and 79 (WRC-2000)). Administrations should take this into account when considering regulatory provisions in relation to these bands. Because of the potential deployment of high-density applications in the fixed-satellite service in the bands 39.5-40 GHz and 40.5-42 GHz (see No. 5.516B), administrations should further take into account potential constraints to high-density applications in the fixed service, as appropriate. (WRC-037)
SUP 5.559A The band 75.5-76 GHz is also allocated to the amateur and amateur-satellite services on a primary basis until the year 2006. (WRC-2000) (WRC-07)
