Radio Frequency Register
Spectrum is divided into three categories. Official use, free use and commercial use. Some
frequencies are saved for government/official use; small portion of spectrum are assigned to public
for free use, however these free uses should also be authorized from SIGET. Other commercial users
have to pay annual fee.
