Information relating to the major bands used in RF communications can be found below. Each band is defined by the country's spectrum regulator and while each regulator works to harmonise bands between countries through the work of the ITU, the specifics of each RF band still differ between countries.

Within each allocation a band plan is defined which sets out the conditions in which users can operate radiofrequency transmitters. These conditions include:

  • Licencing and coordination requirements
  • Channel sizing, guard bands, and occupancy
  • Power and spectral limits
  • Minimum antenna sizing
  • Geographic restrictions and embargoes
