ARLB039 IARU team on the job at WRC-03

The International Telecommunication Union's (ITU) World
Radiocommunication Conference 2003 got under way June 9 at the
Geneva International Conference Center adjacent to ITU Headquarters.
More than 2600 delegates and other participants are expected to
attend the four-week conference. Dr Veena Rawat of Canada was
elected Chairman of the Conference by acclamation.

The core IARU observer team includes IARU President Larry Price,
W4RA, and IARU Secretary David Sumner, K1ZZ. ARRL staff members Paul
Rinaldo, W4RI, and Jon Siverling, WB3ERA, are on the official US
delegation.

Approximately a dozen other radio amateurs representing their
national IARU member-societies are participating on national
delegations, along with members of IARU regional executive
committees who are serving on delegations and in other capacities.
Among these are IARU Vice President David Wardlaw, VK3ADW, who is on
the Australian delegation; Region 1 Chairman Ole Garpestad, LA2RR,
who is on the Norwegian delegation; Region 1 Vice Chairman Tafa
Diop, 6W1KI, observing for the African Telecommunications Union;
Region 2 Vice President Dario Jurado, HP1DJ, observing for the IARU;
Region 3 Chairman Fred Johnson, ZL2AMJ, who is on the New Zealand
delegation; Region 3 Secretary Keigo Komuro, JA1KAB, who is on the
delegation of Japan; and Y.S. Park, HL1IFM, Region 3 Director, who
is on the delegation from the Republic of Korea. In addition,
literally dozens of radio amateurs are present at WRC-03 in a wide
range of professional capacities.

The conference will try to complete work on more than 40 agenda
items. Three are especially important to Amateur Radio: Realignment
of 7 MHz allocations, revision of the regulations governing the
amateur and amateur-satellite services, including the Morse code
requirement, and consideration of an allocation for satellite-borne
synthetic aperture radars (SARs) in the 70-cm band.

Germany's Eberhard George, DL7IH, chairs the committee handling the
critical Amateur Radio agenda items, with the exception of the SARs
issue.
