860 MHz

Slightly higher in frequency, the next amateur band is 860 to 890 MHz. This allocation was acquired as this book was being written, thus its applications and future in amateur radio are unknown at the present time. This band is expected to become an amateur fast-scan-TV/OSCAR-satellite range. Its proximity to the upper end of uhf television channels is particularly appealing for public-service applications during emergencies, or for public-relations use .
