Success in Europe

During the meeting of the CEPT WRC-12 Conference Preparatory Group held in Bucharest between November 1st-4th 2011 an European Common Proposal was agreed.

This ECP represents the block vote of 48 administrations and was passed without dissent. It proposes an allocation to the amateur service between 472-480 kHz on a secondary basis with a maximum power limit of 5W eirp.

This ECP will now be forwarded to the ITU as a contribution from CEPT.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who participated in the work of the working group that led to the adoption of this proposal. Also thanks are due to those European Member Societies who helped to influence their national administrations in this matter.

Now for WRC-12.
