Guidelines for Aeronautical Radio Spectrum Licenses
Aeronautical radio communication involves the communication between aeronautical stations and aircraft stations, or between aircraft stations relating to safety and regularity of flight, primarily along national or international civil air routes. Due to the safety critical nature of this type of communication the frequency bands are internationally agreed and set out in the Radio Regulations, which are agreed at the World Radio Conferences of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) – a specialised agency of the United Nations. The Radio Regulations have international treaty status and are binding on ITU member states, including the State of Qatar.
There are following categories and sub-categories of Aeronautical licenses issued by ictQATAR which are explained in detail in these guidelines:
