World Radiocommunication Conference

| October 30, 2015

Amateur radio’s interests will be well represented when the 2015 ITU World Radiocommunication Conference convenes on 2 November in Geneva, Switzerland.

Held every three or four years, the conferences review and, if necessary, revise the Radio Regulations, the international treaty governing the use of the radio frequency spectrum.

Delegates will consider several items of interest to the amateur radio community during the nearly month-long international gathering.

Whilst most attention by amateurs is likely to be focussed on the prospect of a 5MHz allocation, several other topics are included that represent either threats or opportunities.

The RSGB’s detailed responses can be found on the RSGB website.
