BTS Appointed as Installation Contractor to Spectrum Restack Programme

The Commonwealth of Australia acting through the ACMA, intends to auction the digital dividend of 126MHz of spectrum in the 700MHz band. This requires all television broadcasting services to be cleared from the 694 to 820MHz range (Channels 52 - 69) by moving them to channels below 52.

This process is known as the RF Spectrum Restack. Clearance will require reassignment of broadcast transmission channels for approximately 1,300 transmitters at approximately 420 sites across Australia.
