Band VI is the name of a radio frequency range within the super high frequency (SHF) part of the electromagnetic spectrum.[1][2][3]

One source states that Band VI ranges from 11.7 to 12.5 GHz,[1] whilst other earlier sources state the range as 11.7 to 12.7 GHz.[2][3] The band is used for direct-broadcast satellite (DBS)[1] and amateur radio astronomy.[4]
