FF = ( BW ´ FC ´ AC ) + MC

FF      :   Frequency Fee at the unit of baht per year,

BW    :   Bandwidth at the unit of kilohertz (necessary or assigned bandwidth)

FC     :   Frequency Constant, details as shown in Table 1

AC     :   Application Constant, details as shown in Table 2

MC     :   Minimum Charge at the unit of baht details as shown in Table 3
