Radio-relay links

Radio relay links are used to link two locations instead of using a telephone cable or optical fibre. They can be established quickly requiring little infrastructure.

In order to be authorised to establish radio relay links applicants have to fill out the following forms:

  • Application for a licence to use radio relay links, 2nd category.
  • National notification form for radio relay links (see explanatory note).

In the 1795-1800 MHz frequency band, radio-relay links can be installed without having to obtain a licence. These are destined exclusively for the audio link between the studio and the broadcasting antenna having a maximum power of 20 mW EIRP. 

Transmitters operating in the 869.400 – 869.650 MHz  frequency band are not allowed to be used as a radio relay link.
