United Kingdom Table of Radio Frequency Allocations
9kHz - 105GHz

This information sheet provides a breakdown of the UK radio spectrum allocations within the range 9 kHz - 105 GHz. It is intended to give an overview of the current use of the spectrum within the UK within this frequency range.

It is not exhaustive in detail nor does it confer or imply any guarantee that allocations will not be altered in the future.

Note that the "Allocations to Services" column entries in upper case denote PRIMARY status and those in lower case denote Secondary status as defined in the ITU Radio Regulations. Footnotes have been included (with a S5 prefix) where they apply to the UK - details of the relevant footnotes are given in Annex B.
