Indonesia’s Safe Flight Navigation through Frequency Order Socialisation

The Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, the Directorate General of Resources and Equipment of Post and Information Technology, and the Banjarmasin Class II Radio Frequency Spectrum Monitoring Centre carry out orderly socialisation of the use of radio frequency spectrum, telecommunication tools, and equipment to further understand its safe use. The goal of socialisation is to reduce radio frequency interference, particularly for in-flight navigation.

The head of Balmon SFR Class II Banjarmasin, Mujiyo, stated that the goal of his group and the amateur radio group in South Kalimantan, Indonesia, was to inform the radio frequency user community of the rules and regulations for the use of radio frequency spectrum as well as its telecommunication tools and equipment through this socialisation activity. It will be possible to limit radio frequency interference with orderly radio frequency usage, particularly in the aviation navigation industry.

According to Mujiyo, those who are found breaking the use of the radio frequency spectrum will get sanctions in the form of administrative punishments under Law Number 11 of 2020 Concerning Job Creation. In addition to administrative penalties, broadcast equipment will be seized to further delete or destroy any evidence related to telecommunications equipment and tool certification violations.

Mujiyo urged everyone to abide by and comprehend all rules on the usage of the radio frequency spectrum and telecommunications gear that could reduce interference. The South Kalimantan Provincial Government’s Office of Communication and Information supports the adoption of socialisation.

The radio frequency spectrum, particularly those used in the aviation industry, needs to be controlled and monitored, according to Muhammad Muslim, the head of the South Kalimantan Communication and Information Office.

By converting analogue transmissions to digital broadcasts or by implementing Analogue Switch Off (ASO), the community may also assist in maintaining control over the radio frequency spectrum and ensuring that other industries, particularly the aviation industry, can make the most use of it. The radio frequency spectrum can now be utilised more effectively for other uses, including disaster monitoring and aviation, thanks to the ASO shift.

OpenGov Asia earlier reported that the distribution of FM radio channels in the border regions of eastern Sumatra, the Malacca Peninsula, and the northern part of Kalimantan, which shares a border with Sabah, Sarawak, has been taken into consideration by Indonesia and Malaysia.

The bilateral meeting between Indonesia and Malaysia will primarily focus on the said items. State administrations can sustain one another’s radio stations thanks to this coordination, and the use of frequencies will remain uninterrupted.

The standardisation of frequencies will be pursued by the two countries. Additionally, two more agendas were discussed bilaterally, including issues related to the Analogue Switch Off (ASO), digital TV implementation, and channel upgrades.

Furthermore, Hary Budiarto, head of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology’s Research and Development Agency for Human Resources, hopes that as the nation moves into the digital era, the postal and telecommunications sectors will continue to be built and developed together, making Indonesia more resilient and allowing it to expand.

The government and other stakeholders must put forth a lot of effort and work together to develop the infrastructure and technology in the domains of the post, telecommunications, and digital-based broadcasting. The nation believes that in Indonesia’s rural regions, digital technology must be felt equitably by all residents to build a thriving digital economy.
