Six meters is one of the most interesting amateurs bands, so please obey the
Recommended Code of Operating Practice for 6m Operators


Six Meters in Austria:

Brief History:

Wide local restrictions around Austrias only TV-station on channel E2: "Jauerling" in JN78 square.
Neither other national nor international radio services must be disturbed.
Transmissions allowed at fixed licensed locations of Austrian amateur radio stations only.
This means, no mobile or portable operation, no CEPT licenses too.
During the transmit mode, the license owner or station responsible person must be attainable by telephone at any time, in order to be able to arrange an immediate disconnection of the amateur radio station in case of disturbances, which means practically no beacons or repeaters.

max. power increased to 100W (PEP).
