(1): "Yes" means that ECC Recommendation T/R 61-01 also applies to 472-479 kHz. This recommendation allows radio amateurs holdig a CEPT HAREC licence to operate during short visits (up to 3 months) in other CEPT countries without obtaining an individual temporary licence from the visited CEPT country.
(2): "Yes" means that ECC Recommendation (05)06 also applies to 472-479 kHz. This recommendation allows radio amateurs holdig a CEPT NOVICE licence to operate during short visits (up to 3 months) in other CEPT countries without obtaining an individual temporary licence from the visited CEPT country.
(3): Excluding protection ranges of 1000 km around the Exmouth NDB (21°26'7"S/114°3'57"E) and 2000 km around the Timor NDB (10°37'21"S/126° 2'0"E).
(4): Including French Overseas Territories in ITU Region 2: Saint Pierre et Miquelon (FP), French Guiana (FY), Guadeloupe (FG), Martinique (FM), Saint Barthélemy (FJ) and Saint Martin (FS).
(5): No residence nor office within 200 m from the station or with written permission from residents within 200 m from the station due to possibility of interference to BC radio. Station inspection is required (except less than 20 W TX power under special conditions).
(6): Whatever limit is reached first.
(7): The CEPT license is valid in Norway (LA/homecall) and Svalbard (JW/homecall). It is not valid for Jan Mayen (JX), Bouvet Island (3Y) or Peter I Island (3Y).
(8): 5 W EIRP at more than 800 km distance from the border with African countries.
