With all the talk about the new 5G system, here is a look at what frequencies will be used for the 5G system." />

10/28/20 21:59:39 UTC
149.6500 MHz
"...2-7 is turning inbound, 1 bundle, 5 jumpers..." 10/28/2020, 1352h. -AJ
 
10/28/20 21:57:43 UTC
38.700 MHz
A2A "ZEUS12, 22. Show you're about 8.5 miles away from us, are you behind us?.....Sierra-Delta-Zulu (SDZ VOR)..." Signal kinda in and out, but strangely very clear and neither pilot had any noticable background noise (helicopter sounds) as if using new type of mic. Prev logged this in use for ZEUS(H64s) training in 2018 near KVUJ. 10/27/2020, 1415h. -AJ
 
10/27/20 17:49:48 UTC
38.700 MHz
"...H1's, currently Chesterfield, Charlie-Tango-Foxtrot (CHESTERFIELD VOR/DME, CTF), en route to ????bruice???, one hour out..." Oddly excellent, near perfect reception, though CTF is nearly 60 miles distant. The destination part sounded like "tango-bruice", so reception obviously less than perfect. 10/27/2020, 1228h. -AJ
 
10/27/20 17:42:55 UTC
336.100 MHz
"...glad you're on frequency and let us know when you're en route so you can give us an idea of the time..." 10/26/2020, 1233h. -AJ
 
10/27/20 17:41:11 UTC
32.450 MHz
"...uh Alpha 5-3-1 (A-531) here in Montgomery county, Daniel wanted me to let you know" 10/26/2020, 1925h. -AJ
 
10/27/20 15:31:18 UTC
293.000 MHz
"...off Mid-Carolina (KRUQ), en route to Mackall (KHFF)" 10/26/2020, 1918h. -AJ
 
10/26/20 17:28:30 UTC
141.550 MHz
"...Andrews...this is PAT(##)..." Very weak rx, single snippit. 10/20/2020, 2007h. -AJ

5G Frequency Band Plan



There has been a lot of talk about the frequency spectrum that 5G technology will use. With the first 5G-NR standard officially announced, network operators all over the world are conducting trials with the objective to deploy the technology commercially sometime in the next 2-3 years. Different countries have proposed and are working on different frequency bands that range all the way from 600 MHz to 71 GHz. In this article, we have outlined the proposed 5G Bands by country.

United States: The United State is leading the way in 5G R&D. At the lower end of the frequency spectrum they are using the 600 MHz (2 x 35 MHz) band, the 3100 - 3550 MHz band and the 3700 - 4200 MHz band. At the higher end of the frequency spectrum they are using the 27.5 – 28.35 GHz band and the 37 – 40 GHz band. Mobile operators in the US have already conducted trails in these frequency bands. The FCC has also opened up spectrum from 64 - 71 GHz for 5G use as well, however, there has not been too much activity in this frequency band yet.

Europe: Countries in the EU are using both low and high frequency bands for the initial 5G trails. In the lower bands they are using the 3400 - 3800 MHz frequency band and in the higher frequency bands they are using the frequency band from 24.25 - 27.5 GHz.

China: In China there are ongoing trials in the 3300 - 3600 MHz band with the possibility of the 4400 – 4500 MHz band and 4800 – 4990 MHz band also being used. At higher frequencies China is considering using the 24.25 – 27.5 GHz band and the 37 – 43.5 GHz band.

Japan: They are looking at using the frequency spectrum from 3600 - 4200 MHz and 4400 - 4900 MHz in the lower bands and the 27.5 – 28.28 GHz in the higher bands.

Korea: They were one of the first countries to start R&D on 5G Technology with the aim to launch it during the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Feb, 2018. Though, they have not commercially launched this yet, they have made significant strides towards commercialization of the technology. They are currently conducting trials in the 26.5 – 29.5 GHz band.
