The International Amateur Radio Union Administrative Council (AC) met in a virtual session on October 8 – 10. Consisting of the three IARU international officers and two representatives from each of the three IARU regional organizations, the council is responsible for IARU policy and management. The meeting, which had been set to take place in Novi Sad, Serbia, was conducted via the internet because of coronavirus pandemic travel restrictions. The virtual format had the benefit of allowing participation by additional observers from regional organizations and a real-time presentation of reports from specialized IARU coordinators and advisors.
Recently appointed EMC Coordinator Martin Sach, G8KDF, reported on what is being done on behalf of the IARU in CISPR, the International Special Committee on Radio Interference. Sach and his predecessor, Tore Worren, LA9QL, continue to work together to address the need for reasonable standards to limit the proliferating threat of radio spectrum pollution from digital devices and wireless power transmission.
IARU Beacon Project Coordinator Peter Jennings, AB6WM/VE3SUN, reported on the status of the HF time-shared beacon network supported by the Northern California DX Foundation and the IARU. He explained recent and planned upgrades, as well as the networks many applications.
