Via Southgate: IARU Region 1 VHF+ meeting in Friedrichshafen

The SSA have published a report on the IARU Region 1 VHF and Above meeting held in Friedrichshafen in June

A translation of the post by Kjell SM7GVF reads:

On Thursday, June 23, there were IARU Region 1 meetings in connection with the HAM RADIO meeting in Friedrichshafen. There I participated in Committee C5, VUSHF, on behalf of SSA. We were about 21 in attendance and five via Zoom (Internet). The meeting is usually held in Vienna but due to COVID-19 it was put together with HAM RADIO.

Most of the time was spent on a presentation made by Barry, G4SJH, which touches on amateur radio and RNSS (satellite navigation) coexistence in 23 cm, see

The issue is up at the World Radiocommunication Conference 2023 (WRC23) as agenda item 9.1b and Barry is leading the IARU work on this important issue. The European Gallileo system has downlink in the 23 cm band, as well as the Russian, Japanese and Chinese system and partly GPS. RNSS are primary users, amateur radio secondary, in all three IARU regions.
