New frequency (Released on 23 June 2014)
Due to harmonisation of frequency usage within the region, the radio frequency band 477.00 - 477.25 MHz will be reallocated for television broadcasting usage and will no longer be used for Multi-Channels Radio (MCR) operation. MCR users will need to migrate to radio frequency band 446.3250 – 446.4750 MHz (446 MHz).
The technical specifications for MCR have thus been revised to the new 446 MHz radio frequency band with maximum RF power set at 1 W ERP. Licence from IDA is required for the use of MCR with RF power above 500 mW ERP.
