NEWINGTON, CT, Jul 3, 2003--There's good news from World Radiocommunication
Conference 2003 (WRC-03) for 40-meter enthusiasts. In an 11th-hour
compromise, delegates to WRC-03, which wraps up officially July 4, agreed to
move broadcasters out of 7100 to 7200 kHz in Regions 1 and 3 to make room
for the Amateur Service. The agreement eventually will mean a 200-kHz
worldwide allocation at 40 meters. Although the change does not go into
effect until 2009, that's considered speedy in International
Telecommunication Union (ITU) terms. Some of the timelines proposed during
discussions on the 7 MHz agenda item would have held off the changes until
2033! The WRC-03 action on 7 MHz makes no change in the exclusive US
40-meter allocation. US amateurs will continue to enjoy the full 7000 to
7300 kHz band they now have.

"History was made today," said International Amateur Radio Union Secretary
(and ARRL CEO) David Sumner, K1ZZ, who called the agreement a big change
over the status quo. "Never before in the history of radiocommunication has
an HF broadcasting band been shifted to accommodate the needs of another
service. But that's what happened at WRC-03 this morning."

Sumner said a "carefully crafted compromise" was approved on first and
second reading in the WRC-03 Plenary. It calls for broadcasters to vacate
7100 to 7200 kHz by March 29, 2009, and it allocates the band to the Amateur
Service from that date forward.


Uutista lukiessa tuli lähinnä mieleen se, että jos tulevaisuudessa on
aikeissa rakentaa 40m:n yagin/yagit, saattaa olla viisasta tehdä mitoitukset
niin, että antenni toimii myös 7100-7200 kHz. Bandin laajentumiseen on alle
kuusi vuotta aikaa!
