UK Hams to Share 2 Meters During Olympics

Hams in London are being required to temporarily share portions of the 2-meter band with officials of the 2012 summer Olympic Games. According to Newsline, the small block of channels between 144.0125 MHz and 144.1375 MHz was temporarily allocated to the Olympics, for use only by handheld equipment operating no more than 5 watts. The reallocation was only for the period between July 27 and August 28.
