    Ham Radio Now - Episode 6: New Ham Band! (video).

    The World Radio Conference, held in Geneva every four years or so, hammers out agreement on worldwide RF spectrum use for all countries and all services. Ham Radio has a little role to play, and interests to protect. Maybe not so little, at least to us. The ARRL's Brennan Price N4QX gives Ham Radio Now's Gary Pearce KN4AQ a detailed look behind the scenes of this major conference. This time around, Ham Radio came out pretty well: a new (albiet narrow, secondary) allocation at the bottom of MF - 472-479 kHz. And we fended off some potential interference from an oceanographic radar service. All in this edition of Ham Radio Now.
