Australia hosts international spectrum meeting
In preparation for the World Radio Conference in 2019 (WRC-19) there are a number of preparatory meetings that are undertaken. One of these in the Asia Pacific Region is the Asia Pacific Telecommunity (APT) Preparatory Group. This is the third of five regional summits in the lead-up to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) WRC.
The Australian Government is hosting this meeting in Perth from 12 - 16 March 2018 and is expected to attract more than 350 radiocommunication leaders from over 25 Asia-Pacific countries.
The APT aims to build regional positions on radiocommunications spectrum allocations to take forward to global forums and in particular the WRC-19.
Representatives from the ITU and other regional groups—including the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations and the Inter-American Telecommunication Commission—will attend the five-day meeting.
Australia has a large delegation, including representatives from the Department of Defence, CSIRO, Airservices Australia, Australian Maritime Safety Authority, Bureau of Meteorology and industry technical experts.
WIA representative Dale VK1DSH is attending and undertaking multiple roles. He is APG coordinator for WRC19 agenda item 1.1 (ITU R1 50 MHz allocation) and, as such. takes an active part in the APG meetings. Dale is also the Australian coordinator for Agenda Items 1.1 and 9.1.6 and represented the agreed Australian positions on these two agenda items at the APT meeting. Agenda item 9.1.6 covers Wireless Power Transmission and it is important that we are able to express our concerns about RFI that might be generated by WPT systems.
