Belgium Yes 25-06-2014 The ECC Decision on the harmonized use, free circulation and exemption from individual licensing of Earth Stations On Mobile Platforms (ESOMPs) within the frequency bands 17.3-20.2 GHz and 27.5-30.0 GHz, adopted at Bratislava on 8 March 2013 has been transposed in Belgian legislation by the Royal Decree of 26 November 2013 on satellite ground stations. The following parts are implemented: The satellite ground stations On Mobile Platforms (ESOMPs) functioning in the frequency bands 28.4445-28.9485 GHz of 29.4525-30.0000 GHz for transmission, and in the frequency band 17.3-20.2 GHz for reception, conform the annexes 1 to 4 of ECC Decision ECC/DEC/(13)01 of the CEPT. The Royal Decree exists in French and Dutch
Bosnia and Herzegovina Yes Partly 07-01-2020
Bulgaria Yes 22-10-2018 Implemented by Rules for free use of radio frequency spectrum, published in the Bulgarian Official Gazette No. 92 of November 5, 2021. Bands 17.30-20.20 GHz (space-to-Earth); 27.5000-27.8185 GHz (Earth-to-space); 28.4545-28.9385 GHz (Earth-to-space); 29.4625-30.0000 GHz (Earth-to-space). The use of ESOMP is permitted only if they operate with an ITU-registered satellite system. The use of ESOMP operating under the control of satellite systems that are not registered in the ITU is allowed only when in the process of international coordination Bulgaria has not expressed disagreement with the use of these systems or has given its consent.
Croatia Yes 04-03-2014 Implemented through reference in the NTFA. Issued general licence OD-169
Cyprus Yes 13-05-2015 17.3-20.2 GHz (Earth-to-space), 27.5-27.8285 GHz (space-to-Earth), 28.4445-28.8365 GHz (space-to-Earth), 28.8365-28.9485 GHz (space-to-Earth), 29.4525-29.5 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 29.5-30 GHz (space-to-Earth). Planned for 2nd half 2014
