The meeting was attended by 25 Member administrations with 161 delegates and 29 Affiliate members with 61 observers and 8 international organizations with 27 observers.
IARU Region 3 submitted a paper "The Better Utilization of the Amateur Radio Service as a Resource for Disaster Communications". The paper draws attention to the role of amateurs in the recent Tsunami disaster and also to the changes made to the international regulation governing the amateur service at the last ITU WRC. These changes enhance the opportunity to use the amateur service in such situations. The paper stresses the need for national regulations not to inhibit preparation for and participation in disaster support.
