Bulgarian radio amateurs obtain temporary access to the digital portion of 50 MHz band

Thanks to the effort made by BFRA (Bulgarian Federation of Radio Amateurs), the Communications Regulation Commission (CRC) with the Permit No. 02353 / 05.09.2019 has provisionally authorized to use the 50.310 MHz to 50.335 MHz segment.

This band is provided free of charge to all Bulgarian radio amateurs to be able to work and experiment with the new modes of operation in recent years.

BFRA is actively working with all institutions involved in extending the 6 meters band, and we hope that our efforts will be successful soon.
