ARLB068 WRC-97 Heads Into Final Week

The third week of the four-week 1997 World Radiocommunication
Conference in Geneva drew to a close with no unpleasant surprises
for Amateur Radio. The Allocations Committee, Committee 5, has not
yet completed its work on matters relating to ''Little LEOs'' as
advocates of the service continue to look for support, but the focus
of discussion is not on the amateur bands.

Next week, the committees must finish their work early so that their
recommendations can be taken up in plenary meetings. Conference
decisions are firm only after second reading in plenary. Delegates
will be spending long hours examining long documents in great detail
to make sure nothing slips by unnoticed.

4U1WRC has been more active this past week. Amateurs interested in
WRC-97 may wish to visit the Web site maintained by the
International Amateur Radio Club at http://www.itu/int/radioclub/.
From there, links will take you to more information on 4U1WRC,
4U1ITU, and WRC-97.
