The general principle is that the amateur-satellite service has frequency allocations in bands where the amateur service has frequency allocations in all three ITU regions. The only exceptions are in the bands 1260-1270 MHz and 5650-5670 MHz, which are limited to the Earth-to-space direction, and 3400-3410 MHz, which are available in Regions 2 and 3. See RR 5.282.
In Region 2, the band 7100-7200 kHz was reallocated effective 29 MAR 2009. See: RR 5.142.
Until 29 March 2009, the use of the band 7100-7300 kHz in Region 2 by the amateur service shall not impose constraints on the broadcasting service intended for use within Region 1 and Region 3. After 29 March 2009 the use of the band 7200-7300 kHz in Region 2 by the amateur service shall not impose constraints on the broadcasting service intended for use within Region 1 and Region 3. RR 5.142.
But, this is only in Region 2. So, until broadcasters vacate 7100-7200 in regions 1 and 3, the amateur-satellite service won't have a frequency allocation.
