WRC-23 Days-7+8: Work goes on – and IARU Interview

| November 29, 2023

Week-2 of WRC-23 continued with slow progress on current items and the first signs of the future agenda. IARU President Tim Ellam VE6SH arrived to witness for himself the challenges, and got a cherished ITU video interview.

Meetings continued on Tuesday and Wednesday on various items including 23cm, Radar Sounders and Space weather. Chairing the long and difficult meetings for AI-9.1b on 23cm has been Dale Hughes VK1DSH – no easy task –   pictured here with Tim.

Sitting in some other relevant agenda items also showed these were deeply challenging – on 3.3 & 10GHz for Mobile Broadband, and the organisation of AI-10, the all-important agenda for future 2027/21 Conference.

Predictably, AI-10 is massively oversubscribed, so in the background, a parallel activity by the heads of the Regional Telecom Organisations is seeking some agreement on the more likely ones to prioritise.
