The forum -- chaired by IARU Amateur Satellite Advisor Hans van de Groenendaal, ZS6AKV -- will take place on the Sunday morning, August 1. A report back on the activities of the IARU Satellite Adviser and his Advisory Panel will be one of many items on the meeting’s agenda. There will also be a brief presentation covering the ITU notification requirements for satellites operating in the Amateur Service and the requirement to disable transmissions should the signals interfere with other users of the radio spectrum.
