1              Name of Standard [see Note 1]

                This Standard is the Radiocommunications (Analogue Speech (Angle Modulated) Equipment) Standard 2005.

2              Commencement

                This Standard commences on 15 June 2005.

3              Revocation

                Radiocommunications Standard (Analogue Speech (Angle Modulated) Equipment) No. 1 of 1995 is revoked.

4              Definitions

                In this Standard:

Act means the Radiocommunications Act 1992.

analogue speech (angle modulated) equipment means a radiocommunications device that is operated on a land mobile frequency up to 520 MHz within the scope of AS/NZS 4295:2004 to provide a land mobile radio service.

AS/NZS 4295:2004 means the standard AS/NZS 4295:2004, Analogue speech (angle modulated) equipment operating in land mobile and fixed services bands in the frequency range 29.7 MHz to 1 GHz, published by Standards Australia, as in force from time to time.

model, of a radiocommunications device, means a version of the device that has a particular design and identifying number.

5              Application

         (1)   This Standard applies to a radiocommunications device:

                (a)    that is analogue speech (angle modulated) equipment to which subsection (2) applies; and

               (b)    that is not a device mentioned in subsection (3).

         (2)   This subsection applies to analogue speech (angle modulated) equipment that is intended to be operated:

                (a)    as 1 or more of the following kinds of device:

                          (i)    a land mobile system station;

                         (ii)    an ambulatory station;

                         (iii)    a point to multipoint station;

                        (iv)    a point to point station;

                         (v)    a station on board a ship for the purpose of on-board communications; and

               (b)    on a frequency within the frequency range:

                          (i)    for equipment that is intended to be operated as a station on board a ship for the purposes of on-board communication — 450 MHz to 470 MHz (inclusive); and

                         (ii)    in any other case — 29.7 MHz to 520 MHz (inclusive); and

                (c)    on a frequency channel with a bandwidth of 12.5 kHz, 20 kHz or 25 kHz.

Exception — device imported for significant event

         (3)   This subsection applies to a radiocommunications device that:

                (a)    is imported in Australia solely for use in connection with a significant event; and

               (b)    if required to be tested or inspected before it is used in Australia — meets the testing or inspection requirements; and

                (c)    if conditions or requirements are imposed on the use of the device in Australia — complies with those conditions or requirements; and

               (d)    is used in Australia only at the location of the significant event; and

                (e)    is used in Australia only for the duration of the significant event.

         (4)   In this section:

significant event means an event at a specified location or locations, notified on the website www.acma.gov.au with the approval of the Chair.

6              Standard for performance

                For paragraph 162 (1) (a) of the Act, the standard for performance of analogue speech (angle modulated) equipment is AS/NZS 4295:2004, to the extent that that standard applies to analogue speech (angle modulated) equipment operating on frequencies up to 520 MHz.

7              Compliance with this Standard — devices complying with former Standard

         (1)   This section has effect despite the revocation of Radiocommunications Standard (Analogue Speech (Angle Modulated) Equipment) No. 1 of 1995 (the former Standard).

         (2)   If analogue speech (angle modulated) equipment of a particular model was manufactured, imported, altered or modified before the commencement of this Standard, the device is taken to comply with this Standard if it complied with the former Standard when it was manufactured, imported, altered or modified.

         (3)   If analogue speech (angle modulated) equipment of that model is manufactured, imported, altered or modified on or after the commencement of this Standard, the device is taken to comply with this Standard if it complies with the former Standard when it is manufactured, imported, altered or modified.

8              Effect of amendment of standard for performance

         (1)   If analogue speech (angle modulated) equipment is manufactured, imported, altered or modified within 1 year after the standard for performance is amended, the device is taken to meet the standard for performance if it meets that standard as in force immediately before the amendment.

         (2)   Analogue speech (angle modulated) equipment that is manufactured, imported, altered or modified 1 year or more after the standard for performance is amended must meet the standard for performance as amended.
