WRC-15 has ratified the first new HF amateur allocation since 1979. Although only 15kHz wide it was agreed internationally. I hope that CEPT allows a wider contiguous allocation. I am sure I cannot be alone in finding all these non-contiguous 5MHz allocations very confusing.
From the RSGB report on WRC-15:
"Z8 has now officially been agreed as
the prefix for South Sudan and will be formally entered into the Radio
Regulations. Meanwhile the revised Radio Regulations from WRC-15 will
officially come into effect from the 1st January 2017. "
