Supplementary Regulations Appendix D
Radio Frequencies and Their Usage
Guidance Notes for Types of Radio Equipment If you are intending to use radio communication throughout the rally, the following notes give a broad outline of the various options available. In general, the equipment/licence will fall into one of the following categories: Citizens Band (CB) A competition car equipped with a CB radio shall use Channel 19 for communications and in emergencies. Other channels should be used for private communications. The use of amplifiers is not permitted. Amateur Radio The use of amateur radio equipment is not permitted unless all the users hold a current amateur radio licence. As this, in practical terms, is highly unlikely, such use is not usual. Cellular Telephone The use of cellular telephones is permitted. Temporary Licences For the use of radio which does not come within any of the above categories, a temporary licence may be arranged. Application forms and further information can be found on the homepage of the Post and Telecom Administration (PTA) www.pta.is, under Technic and frequencies and Temporary licences. Use of Radio Equipment PTA is responsible for the management of the radio spectrum. For many users of radio, particularly the emergency services, any breakdown in their systems due to interference from unlicensed equipment can have life threatening consequences. Any unlicensed use or equipment operated outside the terms of such a licence is a major concern for the PTA. Requirements of the PTA Any radio equipment used by a competitor and/or the associated support teams in Iceland must be covered by a licence issued by the PTA. Its operation must be strictly within the terms and conditions of the licence. The installation or use of equipment operated outside the terms renders the operator/installer liable to prosecution. Upon conviction, the equipment is liable to forfeiture together with fines and/or imprisonment. Scrutineering To ensure that illegal equipment (or unauthorised frequencies) are not used during the rally PTA staff may inspect competitors' radio equipment at the pre-event scrutineering and might also be present throughtout the event itself to monitor and check radio equipment in the rally cars and service vehicles.
