The 9-centimeter band is a portion of the SHF (microwave) radio spectrum internationally allocated to amateur radio and amateur satellite use. The amateur radio band, in ITU regions 1 and 2, is between 3,300 MHz and 3,500 MHz, and it is available only on a secondary basis. The amateur satellite band is between 3,400 MHz and 3,410 MHz, and it is only available in ITU Regions 1 and 2, on a non-interference basis to other users (ITU footnote 5.282). In Germany, Israel and the United Kingdom, the band 3,400 - 3,475 MHz is also allocated to the amateur service on a secondary basis (ITU footnote 5.431).
In CEPT's "European Common Allocation Table", footnote EU17 allocates 3,400 MHz to 3,410 MHz to European amateurs on a secondary basis.

"EU17: In the sub-bands 3400-3410 MHz, 5660-5670 MHz, 10.36-10.37 GHz and 10.45-10.46 GHz the amateur service operates on a secondary basis. In making assignments to other services, CEPT administrations are requested wherever possible to maintain these sub-bands in such a way as to facilitate the reception of amateur emissions with minimal power flux densities."Check date values in: |date= (help)
Some administrations have authorized spectrum for amateur use in this region.
1 This is not mentioned in the ITU's Table of Frequency Allocations, but individual administrations may make allocations under Article 4.4 of the ITU Radio Regulations. See the appropriate Wiki page for further information. 2 HF allocation created at the 1979 World Administrative Radio Conference. These are commonly called the "WARC bands". 3 This includes a currently active footnote allocation mentioned in the ITU's Table of Frequency Allocations.
