Industry Canada has designated 20 MHz of spectrum in the 24 GHz frequency range to accommodate licence-exempt high-capacity fixed point-to-point communications links. The decision (DGTP-005-03), released on April 26, adds the licence-exempt spectrum to the entire 24.05-24.25 MHz band, which is already being used for radiolocation, amateur radio and earth exploration-satellite services. The move also brings Canadian use of the spectrum into harmony with that in the United States.
