After the last reports and slides received by the author, it seems that radio amateurs will lose the 23 cm band in the near future. That is the reason for this late proposal. We can be optimistic, but more than a small piece of spectrum for near band communication will not survive. Also the enthusiastic testing with ATV on 70 cm is not a replacement for 23 cm, because this will cause disturbance to our amateur satellites and all cars will stay locked if the ISM band is used. Proposal: Radio amateurs need a new allocation like MHz for the agenda of the World Radio Conference WRC so that amateurs get back spectrum near the existing 23 cm band. Up until now there have only been four Galileo test satellites in orbit which have been used to validate the system. The first two satellites of the operational Galileo GPS constellation were launched on August 22, , they will be followed by further launches over the next 3 years.
centimeter band - Wikipedia
An amateur radio satellite is an artificial satellite built and used by amateur radio operators for use in the Amateur-satellite service. The designation is assigned by AMSAT , an organization which promotes the development and launch of amateur radio satellites. Because of the prevalence of this designation, amateur radio satellites are often referred to as OSCARs. Currently, over 18 fully operational amateur radio satellites in orbit  act as repeaters , linear transponders , or store and forward digital relays.
EME listing 22 March. Yagis and SWR Jan The brace is the same material and bent in a home-made jig which uses a vice to squeeze a bend into the material. The driven element uses brass tube, forced into a machined block of PTFE. A short length of Aircell 7 cable connects the DE to the outside world.
The 23 centimeter , MHz or 1. The amateur radio band is between MHz and MHz. The amateur satellite band is between MHz and MHz, and its use by satellite operations is only for up-links on a non-interference basis to other radio users ITU footnote 5.
