VU's authorized to use 7.00 to 7.20 MHz :

VU Amateur Radio operators are now authorized to use 7.00 to 7.20 MHz (previously it used to be 7.00 to 7.10 MHz). Here is an extract of a message from ARSI (Amateur Radio Society of India which represents India in IARU) :

As said by VU2GMN, OM Gopal president of ARSI "I spoke to WPC just now and they have confirmed that the extra bandwidth has been officially released to VU radio amateurs based on the petitions given by ARSI on 15 April 2009, soon after the band was to be released as per agreement in WRC2003. The notification will appear on the WPC webpage shortly VU hams can now officially use that extra band width".

They have also confirmed that the other requests made by ARSI regarding 10 MHz and 50 MHz are also under consideration, so please wait for further news.
