Radio Spectrum Inventory: A 2010 Snapshot — Canada

Annex 1–Canadian Table of Frequency Allocations and Frequency Use by Service/Application

The following annex provides diagrams of the amount of spectrum used for each service/application in this report. Sections A 1.1-1.12 contain part the Canadian Table of Frequency Allocations from 52 MHz – 38 GHz, with white boxes depicting spectrum in use and grey boxes indicating spectrum that will come into use in the future (or is currently under consultation) for the specific service or application. Note that these boxes represent 'primary' but not necessarily 'exclusive' use, unless otherwise indicated. This annex is only meant to provide a visual representation of the amount of spectrum. For exact bands, refer to the appropriate sections of the main report.
