RSGB President writes to Ofcom about 144MHz

| July 5, 2019

In our next step in an ongoing effort to protect the 144MHz band, the RSGB President has written to Ofcom regarding the recent World Radio Conference WRC-23 aeronautical proposal.

Our input summarises the basis for our deep concerns, but also includes an appendix highlighting the multi-faceted nature of amateur radio activity and innovation in this strategically important global Primary allocation.

This comes in the run up to a key CEPT meeting in August, where its 48 member states—including the UK—will confirm their common positions for the World Radio Conference this autumn.

The letter also includes requests regarding other WRC agenda items including 50MHz, 23cm/Galileo and wireless power.

The RSGB anticipates being able to publish more details and supporting material in due course.
