RSGB President’s letter to Ofcom regarding 144-146 MHz

The RSGB President, Dave Wilson, M0OBW wrote to Ofcom on Friday 5 July strongly expressing the RSGB’s concerns about the proposed WRC-23 aeronautical Agenda Item that includes 144-146 MHz.

The President’s letter started by stating that the RSGB "shares the concerns of the global amateur community and views the French proposal as lacking a proper understanding of the implications of sharing an aeronautical application with weak-signal terrestrial and space communications services."

It continued by saying that "from our perspective, and in the view of the wider global amateur community, we do not foresee any realistic feasibility of a sharing scenario which does not seriously degrade or impede amateur usage of the spectrum, given the extent and complexity of current amateur services’ primary usage."
