The Wireless Institute of Australia board and its Spectrum Strategy Committee (SSC) recently held a workshop to review the submission to the 5 year spectrum outlook.

This ACMA planning tool is taken seriously by the WIA in identifying the spectrum related matters for the amateur service and amateur satellite service that are expected to require ACMA resource allocation over the next five years.It draws on the IARU decisions and domestic matters concerning the spectrum.
WIA President Justin Giles-Clark VK7TW says the workshop went through the submission item by item, but concluded with minimal change from the draft from the SSC. The WIA submission has now been sent to the ACMA. Justin VK7TW says the WIA is also about to submit a comprehensive evidence-based submission to the ACMA recommending changes to the Licence Conditions (LCD).
The WIA suggestions will soon appear on the WIA website, and we expect the ACMA will release a public discussion paper on the proposed changes later this year.
