ARLB006 FCC seeks comments on WRC-03 draft proposals

The FCC is seeking comments on draft recommendations the World
Radiocommunication Conference Advisory Committee adopted January 8.
''Based upon our initial review of the recommendations, the
International Bureau tentatively concludes that we can generally
support the proposals recommended by the WRC-03 Advisory
Committee,'' the FCC said in a Public Notice released January 15.

The FCC also has draft proposals developed by other Executive Branch
agencies, and the FCC requests comment on those proposals as well.

US delegations will use the proposals at bilateral, regional and
international meetings. One agenda item involves examining the
adequacy of the frequency allocations for HF broadcasting in the
vicinity of 4-10 MHz. Complete texts of draft proposals are
available via the FCC's WRC-03 Web site.

Comments may be filed via e-mail to Commenters also
may submit an original and one copy of comments to the Office of the
Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, 445 12th Street, SW,
Washington, DC 20554. Comments should refer to specific proposals by
document number. The deadline for comments is January 31.
