The International Amateur Radio Union Administrative Council has formulated the approach it will take the World Radiocommunications Conference in 2019. The plan was finalised by the Administrative Council responsible for the policy and management of the IARU when it met recently in Chile.

It assigned priorities to agenda items for the 2019 World Radiocommunication Conference of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), and affirmed a matrix approach be taken in preparation. That matrix coordinates the numerous IARU volunteers who are participating in, and monitoring the preparatory meetings of the ITU and regional telecommunications organisations. The agenda includes, along with several items of potential concern to radio amateurs, a possible Region 1 allocation of 50-54 MHz to the amateur service to harmonise with the allocations in the other two IARU regions.
The Administrative Council includes representatives of the three IARU regions and met just prior to the IARU Region 2 Conference, October 10-14. International coordinators reports came from the International Beacon Project, Satellite Adviser, EMC matters, and Hans Zimmermann HB9AQS on Emergency Communications with evidence of radio amateurs bridging communications gaps following natural disasters.
An emergency communications workshop was to be held in conjunction with the IARU Region 2 Conference. An IARU AC news release is below.
