Expanded Band Usage
The Communications Authority of Kenya (CAK) has granted us the use of the six metre band – 50 to 52 MHz, under the usual conditions, secondary usage and no interference. A request has been made for 4 meters, 70 to 70.5 MHz as well, without success, but the new 60 meter segment 5,315.5 kHz to 5,366.5 kHz has been granted for Amateur use since early 2017.
We also use 40 meters up to 7,200 kHz but license documents and published frequency schedules may not have been updated. Foreign applicants outside Kenya are required to have their passport and license photocopies certified by a Commissioner for Oaths or Notary Public, as before, but are NOT required to submit a sworn affidavit attesting to the validity of the documents. A visa was shown to be a requirement for visitors.
All local applicants will be required to submit a sworn affidavit but will no longer need to have their documents attested.
