Channels subject to licence and used throughout Finland for radiotelephones in lifting control

As of January 3, 2018, two channel widths are allowed for lifting control channels: 25 kHz and 12.5 kHz. The change is implemented to improve the efficiency of frequency use particularly in geographical areas where lifting control channels are used by several different users. The centre frequencies, channel widths and principles of use of the channels are presented below.

Common channels (tx=rx):

Centre frequencies,
channel width 25 kHz

Centre frequencies,
channel width 12.5 kHz

442.850 MHz 442.84375 MHz
442.85625 MHz
442.875 MHz 442.86875 MHz
442.88125 MHz
442.900 MHz 442.89375 MHz
442.90625 MHz
442.925 MHz 442.91875 MHz
442.93125 MHz
442.950 MHz 442.94375 MHz
442.95625 MHz
442.975 MHz 442.96875 MHz
442.98125 MHz

A radio licence must be acquired when using radio transmitters operating in these channels.

FICORA complies with the following principles when granting licences:

  • the channels are intended to be used only for communication intended for lifting control in connection with professional, trade or business operations;
  • the channels are granted for use throughout Finland;
  • the channels are in common use;
  • the channels are allowed only for mobile radio telephones;
  • the channels are allowed only for speech transmission;
  • the radiated power of the radio telephones operating in these channels must not exceed 1 W (ERP);
  • the channel width is either 25 kHz or 12.5 KHz, and determined on the basis of the centre frequency;
  • the licence is granted for all 18 channels;
  • the radio transmitters that are used must must meet the relevant requirements.
