  3. Admin - Which Emitters CANNOT transmit alongside without permission from the WEO, also give any power restrictions?
    • Due to high power radar tx’ns produced by the 2DR and CWI they are not to tx alongside without permission of the WEO.
    • In addition HF tx’ns greater than 500W are not permitted without authorisation from the WEO.
