IoT VHF testbed available for use

The IoT VHF test bed from 210 – 220 MHz is now available for licensing.

Licences will be available for three years until 31 January 2022, when the use of the band will be reviewed.

The band will be licensed under the radio licensing regime. Approved Radio Engineers or Certifiers can certify these radio licences.

The decision to release this testbed was based on the outcome of a technical consultation undertaken in 2018.
