Prosecutions on 5.8GHz band - Feb 2013

Post by sde-1104 » Sun Jan 04, 2015 9:57 pm

Thank you for your request for information regarding complaints and prosecutions on the 5.8
GHz band which was received on 29 January 2013 and has been considered under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 (‘the Act’).

You asked:

How many prosecutions have there been to date for people using transmitters on the 5.8
GHz band above the license free limit (25mW) for the purposes of FPV flying. How many
complaints about this activity have been received?

I can confirm the answer is NIL to both questions. Please note that our current electronic
records only go back to Oct 2006, data prior to this is unavailable.
If you require any further information or would like to talk through any issues regarding the
information you have requested then please do not hesitate to give me a ring. I will be more
than happy to pass your details on to one of our experts in this area.
