IARU Consultations

IARU Region-1Every three years IARU Region 1 holds its General Conference, as well as Interim Meetings at around the midway point.

Supporting this activity we have a process for consultations on IARU Matters. These are aligned to the principal committees:-

  • C3 – for General Matters
  • C4 – for HF Matters
  • C5 – for VHF/UHF/Microwave Matters
  • C7 – for EMC Matters

The goal is to achieve consensus as topics evolve through the three stages of:-

  1. Call for papers (ie to outline key topics)
  2. Review Draft UK Papers
  3. Review of All Submissions (inc. from other countries)


2021 Region-1 Workshop:
IARU Region-1 is preparing for its 2021 Workshop on 17-22 October. This was a key strategic aim for the 2020 conference (within the C3 stream), but deferred due to Covid. Our survey supporting the 2021 workshop is now closed (deadline 23 May 2021), and we thank all those who replied to the survey.


2020 Region-1 Conference Consultation:
Numerous papers are available online from the 11-16 October 2020 IARU Region-1 Virtual General Conference. Our thanks for feedback which contributed to a successful event. If you have any queries, please contact the following as appropriate:-
