Frequency assignments

Use of the frequency spectrum for communications is subject to an application process and the assignment of frequencies. Examples are:

  • Sound and television broadcasting
  • Mobile communications
  • Mobile telephone systems

Some frequency bands are meant for a service without separate assignments to individual users e.g.:

  • Maritime and aeronautical communications
  • Radioamateur communications
  • CB, GSM, CT1, PMR446 (See table below)
  • Low Power Devices (Short Range Devices) (See SRD table)

See the ERC/REC/70-03 Recommendation relating to Short Range Devices (SRD) that applies in Iceland.
