WRC — the work begins

Work is now underway at WRC19 on issues of interest to the amateur service. IARU’s team of some 14 people are being kept busy in the many committees discussing the agenda items. The Committee considering Agenda Item 1.1 (a 50 MHz amateur service allocation in Region 1) have heard the various Regional positions presented, with two clear positions – 4 MHz primary and 2 MHz secondary. Detailed discussions now begin to reach some resolution.

Discussions are also under way to determine the way ahead on Wireless Power Transmission, where there seems general agreement that no change is needed to the Radio Regulations but that there is more work to do to understand the issues of unwanted emissions and other aspects.

WRC continues until the end of November.
