ATA submission on future use of 40 channel truck radios

09 March 2017

The ATA supports proposed changes by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) that would allow the continued use of 40 channel truck radios.

In 2011 limitations to the continued use of this equipment was introduced to reduce congestion, which has since been achieved.

The ACMA propose to remove the 30 June 2017 time limit on the continued use of 25 kHz citizen band radio stations (CBRS) equipment, and remove the limitation on the use of CB stations to link CB channels and CB repeaters.
