The ITU World Radiocommunication Conference 2012 (WRC-12) ran between 23 January and 17 February 2012, but preparation started shortly after the previous Conference, WRC-07 set its agenda.

A key Agenda Item was AI-1.23 – 500kHz. The result was the creation of the 472-479kHz allocation to the service. It also set the agenda for the following conference, WRC-15, which considered a 5MHz allocation.

Here you will find reports on the progress of the WRC-12 Conference from UK/RSGB delegate Colin Thomas G3PSM.
