WRC-15 – Day-7

| November 11, 2015

ITU WRC-15Agenda Item 1.4 (5 MHz): Two steps forward and one step back might be a polite description of progress on Tuesday regarding 5 MHz and the consideration of permitted power. Some administrations are insisting on the use of tight eirp limits. We have already overrun the schedule allowed for the sub-working group discussions and the real threat of a No Change position exists if we do not reach a consensus. At the moment there are three major administrations resisting any allocation at 5 MHz. Several administrations allowing amateur activity at 5 MHz have already indicated that their current arrangements will continue under RR 4.4.

Agenda Item 10 (Future Agenda Items): Discussions regarding possible future agenda items continue and the draft Resolutions for the global harmonisation of 1.8-2 MHz and 50-54 MHz have been submitted for consideration. There are currently strong indications that the 50 MHz item may be accepted.

The work continues.
