Petition for new band, 4m / 70 MHz

I am trying to get access to a new band, for Australian Amateurs.  Originally a UK band, much of Europe, plus parts of Africa and the Middle East now have it.  It will allow experimentation, including with Trans-Equatorial Propagation, as well as being handy during emergencies.
