Working Group 1 of ITU-R Working Party 5A completed work on the sharing and compatibility studies required for WRC-19 Agenda Item 1.1 during the meeting of WP 5A that concluded on May 9. The report, which began as a nine-page document in 2016, grew to 158 pages developed from 60 input contributions over a 3-year period. Working Group 5A1, responsible for amateur matters, is chaired by Dale Hughes, VK1DSH.

Agenda item 1.1 calls on the ITU to study Amateur Service spectrum needs in Region 1 in the 50 – 54 MHz band, taking into account the results of sharing studies between the Amateur Service and other services using the band to ensure protection of these services.
