Section I – General

MOD COM4/332/98 (B13/347/44) (R7/411/82)

32.1 § 1 Distress communications rely on the use of terrestrial MF, HF and VHF radiocommunications and communications using satellite techniques. Distress communications shall have absolute priority over all other transmissions. The following terms apply:

a) The distress alert is a digital selective call (DSC) using a distress call format, in the bands used for terrestrial radiocommunication, or a distress message format, in which case it is relayed through space stations.

b) The distress call is the initial voice or text procedure.

c) The distress message is the subsequent voice or text procedure.

d) The distress alert relay is a DSC transmission on behalf of another station.

e) The distress call relay is the initial voice or text procedure for a station not itself in distress.     (WRC-07)

MOD COM4/332/99 (B13/347/45) (R7/411/83)

32.2 § 2 1) The distress alert shall be sent through a satellite either with absolute priority in general communication channels, on exclusive distress and safety frequencies reserved for satellite EPIRBs in the Earth-to-space direction or on the distress and safety frequencies designated in the MF, HF and VHF bands for digital selective calling (see Appendix 15).     (WRC-07)

2 The most recent version of Recommendation ITU-R SF.675 should be used to the extent applicable in calculating the maximum power density per Hz. For carriers below 15 GHz, the power density is averaged over the worst 4 kHz band. For carriers at or above 15 GHz, the power density is averaged over the worst 1 MHz band. In the case of assignments with a bandwidth less than the stated averaging bandwidth, the maximum density is calculated as if the assignment occupied the averaging bandwidth.

APPENDIX 1 TO ANNEX 4     (WRC-07)

METHOD FOR DETERMINATION OF THE OVERALL SINGLE-ENTRY AND AGGREGATE CARRIER-TO-INTERFERENCE VALUE AVERAGED OVER THE NECESSARYBANDWIDTH OF THE MODULATED CARRIER

This section describes the method for calculating the single-entry interference potential.

The method is based on the single-entry carrier-to-interference ratio (C / I ) which a given allotment or assignment made in accordance with the provisions of Appendix 30B might experience due to an emission from the proposed new assignment or modification. The single-entry uplink (C / I)u and downlink (C/I)d values due to a single interfering satellite network are given by:

(C / I )u ’ [pic][pic], dB

(C / I )d ’ [pic], dB

[pic]

where:

θ, ϕ, ρ, η, ξ are angles as defined in Fig. 1, above.

In the following, all ratios are numerical power ratios.

g1 : the maximum gain of the desired transmitting earth station antenna

lsu : the free-space path loss of the desired up-path signal

lsu′ : the free-space path loss of the interfering up-path signal

g2 (ϕ) : the gain of the desired space station receiving antenna in the direction of the desired earth station

g2 : the maximum gain of the desired space station receiving antenna

p1′ : the power density, averaged over the necessary bandwidth of the modulated carrier, fed into the interfering earth station transmitting antenna (W/Hz)

g3 (ϕ) : the desired space station transmitting antenna gain in the direction of the desired earth station

g3 : the maximum gain of the desired space station transmitting antenna

g4 : the maximum gain of the desired receiving earth station antenna

p3′ : the power density, averaged over the necessary bandwidth of the modulated carrier, fed into the interfering space station transmitting antenna (W/Hz)

g3′ (η) : the interfering space station transmitting antenna gain in the direction of the desired earth station

g4 (ξ) : the desired earth station receiving antenna gain in the direction of the interfering satellite

The overall single-entry (C/I)t at a given downlink test point due to a single interfering allotment or assignment is given by:

(C/I)t [pic]     dB

where:

(C/I )umin: the lowest uplink C/I value among all uplink test points

(C/I )d: the downlink C/I value at the test point under consideration.

NOTE – When only one of the uplink or the downlink is implemented in the bands subject to Appendix 30B, only the contribution from the link that is implemented in the bands subject to Appendix 30B shall be considered in calculating (C /I)t.

The aggregate (C/I)agg at a given downlink test point is given by:

[pic]     dB

j ’ 1, 2, 3 . . . n,

where:

(C/I)tj: overall carrier-to-interference ratio due to interference from the j-th allotment or assignment calculated using the method for overall single-entry (C/I)t as provided in § 1 of Appendix 1 to this Annex; and

where:

n: the total number of interfering allotments or assignments for which the orbital separation with the desired satellite is less than or equal to 10° in the case of the 6/4 GHz band and less than or equal to 9° in the case of the 13/10-11 GHz band.

APPENDIX 2 TO ANNEX 4     (WRC-07)

METHOD FOR DETERMINATION OF THECARRIER-TO-NOISE (C/N) values

The uplink carrier-to noise value (C/N)u and the downlink carrier-to-noise value (C/N)d are calculated as follows:

where:

(C / N )umin: the lowest uplink C/N value among all test points,

(C / N )d: the downlink C/N value at the test point under consideration.

NOTE – When only one of the uplink or the downlink is implemented in the bands subject to Appendix 30B, only the contribution from the link that is implemented in the bands subject to Appendix 30B shall be considered in calculating (C /N)t.

RESOLUTION 18 (Rev.WRC-07)

Relating to the procedure for identifying and announcing the position ofships and aircraft of States not parties to an armed conflict1

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that ships and aircraft encounter considerable risk in the vicinity of an area of armed conflict;

b) that for the safety of life and property it is desirable for ships and aircraft of States not parties to an armed conflict to be able to identify themselves and announce their position in such circumstances;

c) that radiocommunication offers such ships and aircraft a rapid means of self-identification and providing location information prior to their entering areas of armed conflict and during their passage through the areas;

d) that it is considered desirable to provide a supplementary signal and procedure for use, in accordance with customary practice, in the area of armed conflict by ships and aircraft of States representing themselves as not parties to an armed conflict,

resolves

1 that the frequencies for urgency signal and messages specified in the Radio Regulations may be used by ships and aircraft of States not parties to an armed conflict for self-identification and establishing communications. The transmission will consist of the urgency or safety signals, as appropriate, described in Article 33 followed by the addition of the single group „NNN“ in radiotelegraphy and by the addition of the single word “NEUTRAL” pronounced as in French “neutral” in radiotelephony. As soon as practicable, communications shall be transferred to an appropriate working frequency;

2 that the use of the signal as described in the preceding paragraph indicates that the message which follows concerns a ship or aircraft of a State not party to an armed conflict. The message shall convey at least the following data:

a) call sign or other recognized means of identification of such ship or aircraft;

b) position of such ship or aircraft;

c) number and type of such ships or aircraft;

d) intended route;

e) estimated time en route and of departure and arrival, as appropriate;

f) any other information, such as flight altitude, radio frequencies guarded, languages and secondary surveillance radar modes and codes;

3 that the provisions of Article 33 relating to urgency and safety transmissions, and medical transports shall apply as appropriate to the use of the urgency and safety signals, respectively, by such ship or aircraft;

4 that the identification and location of ships of a State not party to an armed conflict may be effected by means of appropriate standard maritime radar transponders. The identification and location of aircraft of a State not party to an armed conflict may be effected by the use of the secondary surveillance radar (SSR) system in accordance with procedures to be recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO);

5 that the use of the signals described above would not confer or imply recognition of any rights or duties of a State not party to an armed conflict or a party to the conflict, except as may be recognized by common agreement between the parties to the conflict and a non-party;

6 to encourage parties to a conflict to enter into such agreements,

requests the Secretary-General

to communicate the contents of this Resolution to the International Maritime Organization, the International Civil Aviation Organization, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies for such action as they may consider appropriate,

requests ITU-R

to recommend an appropriate signal in the digital selective calling system for use in the maritime mobile service and other appropriate information as necessary, in consultation with concerned organizations.

RESOLUTION 26 (Rev.WRC-07)

Footnotes to the Table of Frequency Allocations inArticle 5 of the Radio Regulations

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that footnotes are an integral part of the Table of Frequency Allocations in the Radio Regulations and, as such, form part of an international treaty text;

b) that footnotes to the Table of Frequency Allocations should be clear, concise and easy to understand;

c) that footnotes should relate directly to matters of frequency allocation;

d) that, in order to ensure that footnotes allow modification of the Table of Frequency Allocations without introducing unnecessary complications, principles relating to the use of footnotes are needed;

e) that, currently, footnotes are adopted by competent world radiocommunication conferences and any addition, modification or deletion of a footnote is considered and adopted by the competent conference;

f) that some problems concerning country footnotes may be resolved through the application of a special agreement envisaged by Article 6;

g) that, in certain cases, administrations are confronted with major difficulties due to inconsistencies or omissions in footnotes;

h) that, in order to keep the footnotes to the Table of Frequency Allocations up to date, there should be clear and effective guidelines for additions, modifications and deletions of footnotes,

resolves

1 that, wherever possible, footnotes to the Table of Frequency Allocations should be confined to altering, limiting or otherwise changing the relevant allocations rather than dealing with the operation of stations, assignment of frequencies or other matters;

2 that the Table of Frequency Allocations should include only those footnotes which have international implications for the use of the radio-frequency spectrum;

3 that new footnotes to the Table of Frequency Allocations should only be adopted in order to:

a) achieve flexibility in the Table of Frequency Allocations;

b) protect the relevant allocations in the body of the Table and in other footnotes in accordance with Section II of Article 5;

c) introduce either transitional or permanent restrictions on a new service to achieve compatibility; or

d) meet the specific requirements of a country or area when it is impracticable to satisfy such needs otherwise within the Table of Frequency Allocations;

4 that footnotes serving a common purpose should be in a common format, and, where possible, be grouped into a single footnote with appropriate references to the relevant frequency bands,

further resolves

1 that any addition of a new footnote or modification of an existing footnote should be considered by a world radiocommunication conference only when:

a) the agenda of that conference explicitly includes the frequency band to which the proposed additional or modified footnote relates; or

b) the frequency bands to which the desired additions or modifications of the footnote belong are considered during the conference and the conference decides to make a change in those bands; or

c) the addition or modification of footnotes is specifically included in the agenda of the conference as a result of the consideration of proposals submitted by one or more interested administration(s);

2 that recommended agendas for future world radiocommunication conferences should include a standing agenda item which would allow for the consideration of proposals by administrations for deletion of country footnotes, or country names in footnotes, if no longer required;

3 that in cases not covered by further resolves 1 and 2, proposals for new footnotes or modification of existing footnotes could exceptionally be considered by a world radiocommunication conference if they concern corrections of obvious omissions, inconsistencies, ambiguities or editorial errors and have been submitted to ITU as stipulated in No. 40 of the General Rules of Conferences, Assemblies and Meetings of the Union (Antalya, 2006),

urges administrations

1 to review footnotes periodically and to propose the deletion of their country footnotes or of their country names from footnotes, as appropriate;

2 to take account of the further resolves above in making proposals to world radiocommunication conferences.

RESOLUTION 27 (Rev.WRC-07)

Use of incorporation by reference in the Radio Regulations

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that the principles of incorporation by reference were adopted by WRC-95, revised by WRC-97 and further refined by WRC-2000 (see Annexes 1 and 2 to this Resolution);

b) that there are provisions in the Radio Regulations containing references which fail to distinguish adequately whether the status of the referenced text is mandatory or non-mandatory,

noting

that references to Resolutions or Recommendations of a world radiocommunication conference (WRC) require no special procedures, and are acceptable for consideration, since such texts will have been agreed by a WRC,

resolves

1 that for the purposes of the Radio Regulations, the term “incorporation by reference” shall only apply to those references intended to be mandatory;

2 that when considering the introduction of new cases of incorporation by reference, such incorporation shall be kept to a minimum and made by applying the following criteria:

– only texts which are relevant to a specific WRC agenda item may be considered;

– the correct method of reference shall be determined on the basis of the principles set out in Annex 1 to this Resolution;

– the guidance contained in Annex 2 to this Resolution shall be applied in order to ensure that the correct method of reference for the intended purpose is employed;

3 that the procedure described in Annex 3 to this Resolution shall be applied for approving the incorporation by reference of ITU-R Recommendations or parts thereof;

4 that existing references to ITU-R Recommendations shall be reviewed to clarify whether the reference is mandatory or non-mandatory in accordance with Annex 2 to this Resolution;

5 that ITU-R Recommendations, or parts thereof, incorporated by reference at the conclusion of each WRC shall be collated and published in a volume of the Radio Regulations (see Annex 3 to this Resolution),

instructs the Director of the Radiocommunication Bureau

1 to bring this Resolution to the attention of the Radiocommunication Assembly and the ITU-R Study Groups;

2 to identify the provisions and footnotes of the Radio Regulations containing references to ITU-R Recommendations and make suggestions on any further action to the second session of the Conference Preparatory Meeting (CPM) for its consideration, as well as for inclusion in the Director’s Report to the next WRC;

3 to identify the provisions and footnotes of the Radio Regulations containing references to WRC Resolutions that contain references to ITU-R Recommendations, and make suggestions on any further action to the second session of the Conference Preparatory Meeting (CPM) for its consideration, as well as for inclusion in the Director’s Report to the next WRC,

invites administrations

to submit proposals to future conferences, taking into account the CPM Report, in order to clarify the status of references, where ambiguities remain regarding the mandatory or non-mandatory status of the references in question, with a view to amending those references:

i) that appear to be of a mandatory nature, identifying such references as being incorporated by reference by using clear linking language in accordance with Annex 2;

ii) that are of a non-mandatory character, so as to refer to “the most recent version” of the Recommendations.

ANNEX 1 TO RESOLUTION 27 (Rev.WRC-07)

Principles of incorporation by reference

1 For the purposes of the Radio Regulations, the term “incorporation by reference” shall apply only to those references intended to be mandatory.

2 Where the relevant texts are brief, the referenced material should be placed in the body of the Radio Regulations rather than using incorporation by reference.

2bis Where a mandatory reference to an ITU-R Recommendation, or parts thereof, is included in the resolves of a WRC Resolution, which is itself cited in a provision or footnote of the Radio Regulations using mandatory language (i.e. „shall“), that ITU-R Recommendation or parts thereof shall also be considered as incorporated by reference.

3 Texts which are of a non-mandatory nature or which refer to other texts of a non-mandatory nature shall not be considered for incorporation by reference.

4 If, on a case-by-case basis, it is decided to incorporate material by reference on a mandatory basis, then the following provisions shall apply:

4.1 the text incorporated by reference shall have the same treaty status as the Radio Regulations themselves;

4.2 the reference must be explicit, specifying the specific part of the text (if appropriate) and the version or issue number;

4.3 the text incorporated by reference must be submitted for adoption by a competent WRC in accordance with resolves 3;

4.4 all texts incorporated by reference shall be published following a WRC, in accordance with resolves 5.

5 If, between WRCs, a text incorporated by reference (e.g. an ITU-R Recommendation) is updated, the reference in the Radio Regulations shall continue to apply to the earlier version incorporated by reference until such time as a competent WRC agrees to incorporate the new version. The mechanism for considering such a step is given in Resolution 28 (Rev.WRC-03).

ANNEX 2 TO RESOLUTION 27 (Rev.WRC-07)

Application of incorporation by reference

When introducing new cases of incorporation by reference in the provisions of the Radio Regulations or reviewing existing cases of incorporation by reference, administrations and ITU-R should address the following factors in order to ensure that the correct method of reference is employed for the intended purpose, according to whether each reference is mandatory (i.e. incorporated by reference), or non-mandatory:

Mandatory references

1 mandatory references shall use clear linking language, i.e. “shall”;

2 mandatory references shall be explicitly and specifically identified, e.g. “Recommendation ITU-R M.541-8”;

3 if the intended reference material is, as a whole, unsuitable as treaty-status text, the reference shall be limited to just those portions of the material in question which are of a suitable nature, e.g. “Annex A to Recommendation ITU-R Z.123-4”.

Non-mandatory references

4 Non-mandatory references or ambiguous references that are determined to be of a non-mandatory character (i.e. not incorporated by reference) shall use appropriate language, such as “should” or “may”. This appropriate language may refer to “the most recent version” of a Recommendation. Any appropriate language may be changed at any future WRC.

ANNEX 3 TO RESOLUTION 27 (Rev.WRC-07)

Procedures applicable by WRC for approving the incorporationby reference of ITU-R Recommendations or parts thereof

The referenced texts shall be made available to delegations in sufficient time for all administrations to consult them in the ITU languages. A single copy of the texts shall be made available to each administration as a conference document.

During the course of each WRC, a list of the texts incorporated by reference shall be developed and maintained by the committees. This list shall be published as a conference document in line with developments during the conference.

Following the end of each WRC, the Bureau and General Secretariat will update the volume of the Radio Regulations which serves as the repository of texts incorporated by reference in line with developments at the conference as recorded in the above-mentioned document.

RESOLUTION 55 (Rev.WRC-07)

Electronic submission of notice forms for satellite networks, earth stations and radio astronomy stations

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

that submission of notices for all satellite networks, earth stations and radio astronomy stations in electronic format would further facilitate the tasks of the Radiocommunication Bureau and of administrations, and would accelerate the processing of these notices,

recognizing

that, should the processing delays related to the coordination and notification procedures extend beyond the periods specified in Articles 9 and 11 as well as in Appendices 30, 30A and 30B, administrations may be faced with a shortened time window in which to effect coordination,

resolves

1 that, as from 3 June 2000, all notices (AP4/II and AP4/III), radio astronomy notices (AP4/IV) and API (AP4/V and AP4/VI) and due diligence information (Resolution 49 (WRC-07)) for satellite networks and earth stations submitted to the Radiocommunication Bureau pursuant to Articles 9 and 11 shall be submitted in electronic format which is compatible with the BR electronic notice form capture software (SpaceCap);

2 that, as from 17 November 2007, all notices for satellite networks, earth stations and radio astronomy stations submitted to the Radiocommunication Bureau pursuant to Articles 9 and 11, as well as Appendices 30 and 30A and Resolution 49 (WRC-07), shall be submitted in electronic format which is compatible with the BR electronic notice form capture software (SpaceCap and SpaceCom);

3 that, as from 1 June 2008, all notices for satellite networks and earth stations submitted to the Radiocommunication Bureau pursuant to Appendix 30B shall be submitted in electronic format which is compatible with the BR electronic notice form capture software (SpaceCap);

4 that, since 3 June 2000, all graphical data associated with the submissions addressed in resolves 1, 2 and 3 should be submitted in graphics data format which is compatible with the Bureau’s data capture software (graphical interference management system (GIMS)); submission of graphics in paper form, however, continues to be accepted,

instructs the Radiocommunication Bureau

1 to make available coordination requests and notifications referred to in resolves 1, “as received”, on its BR International Frequency Information Circular CD-ROM, within 30 days of receipt, and also on its website;

2 to provide administrations with the latest versions of the capture and validation software and any necessary technical means, training and manuals, along with any assistance requested by administrations to enable them to comply with resolves 1 to 4 above;

RESOLUTION 63 (Rev.WRC-07)

Protection of radiocommunication services against interferencecaused by radiation from industrial, scientificand medical (ISM) equipment

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that ISM applications are defined under RR 1.15 as “operation of equipment or appliances designed to generate and use locally radio frequency energy for industrial, scientific, medical, domestic or similar purposes, excluding applications in the field of telecommunications”;

b) that ISM equipment may be situated in locations where outward radiation cannot always be avoided;

c) that there is an increasing amount of ISM equipment working on various frequencies throughout the spectrum;

d) that in some cases a considerable part of the energy may be radiated by ISM equipment outside its working frequency;

e) that Recommendation ITU-R SM.1056 recommends to administrations the use of International Special Committee on Radio Interference (CISPR) Publication 11 as a guide for ISM equipment to protect radiocommunication services, but that CISPR 11 does not yet fully specify radiation limits for all frequency bands;

f) that some radio services, especially those using low field strengths, may suffer interference caused by radiation from ISM equipment, a risk which is unacceptable particularly in the case of radionavigation or other safety services;

g) that, in order to limit the risks of interference to specified parts of the spectrum:

– the preceding Radio Conferences of Atlantic City, 1947, and Geneva, 1959, designated some frequency bands within which the radiocommunication services must accept harmful interference produced by ISM equipment;

– WARC-79 accepted an increase in the number of bands to be designated for ISM equipment, but only on the condition that limits of radiation from such equipment be specified within the bands newly designated for worldwide use and outside all the bands designated for ISM equipment,

resolves

that, to ensure that radiocommunication services are adequately protected, studies are required on the limits to be imposed on the radiation from ISM equipment within the frequency bands designated in the Radio Regulations for this use and outside of those bands,

invites ITU-R

to continue, in collaboration with CISPR, its studies relating to radiation from ISM equipment within the frequency bands designated in the Radio Regulations for this use and outside of those bands in order to ensure adequate protection of radiocommunication services, with priority being given to the completion of studies which would permit CISPR to define limits in Publication CISPR 11 on radiation from ISM equipment inside all the bands designated in the Radio Regulations for the use of such equipment,

instructs the Director of the Radiocommunication Bureau

1 to bring this Resolution to the attention of CISPR;

2 to provide the results of these studies to WRC-11 for its consideration.

ANNEX 1 TO RESOLUTION 80 (Rev.WRC-07)

RRB Report to WRC-2000

In the RRB Report to WRC-20001, several members of the Board noted some difficulties likely to be experienced by administrations, particularly administrations of developing countries, as follows:

– the “first-come first-served” concept restricts and sometimes prevents access to and use of certain frequency bands and orbit positions;

– a relative disadvantage for developing countries in coordination negotiations due to various reasons such as a lack of resources and expertise;

– perceived differences in consistency of application of the Radio Regulations;

– the submitting of “paper” satellites that restricts access options;

– the growing use of the bands of the Plans of Appendices 30 and 30A by regional, multichannel systems, which may modify the main purpose of these Plans to provide equitable access to all countries;

– the considerable processing delays in the Radiocommunication Bureau are due to the very complex procedures required and the large number of filings submitted; these delays contribute to a coordination backlog of 18 months which could extend to three years and creates uncertain regulatory situations, additional delay in the coordination process that cannot be overcome by administrations, and the possible loss of the assignment because the allotted time is exceeded;

– satellite systems may already be in orbit before completion of coordination;

– statutory time-frames, such as those in No. 11.48, may often be insufficient for developing countries to be able to complete the regulatory requirements as well as the design, construction and launch of satellite systems;

– no provisions for international monitoring to confirm the bringing into use of satellite networks (assignments and orbits).

ANNEX 2 TO RESOLUTION 80 (Rev.WRC-07)

RRB Report to WRC-03

In the RRB Report to WRC-032, concepts to satisfy resolves 2 of Resolution 80 (WRC-2000) were provided, as follows:

– special measures for countries submitting their first satellite filing:

– on an exceptional basis, special consideration could be given to countries submitting their first filing for a satellite system, taking into account the special needs of developing countries;

– such consideration should take into account the following:

– impact on other administrations;

– satellite service of the system (i.e. FSS, MSS, BSS);

– frequency band covered by the filing;

– system is intended to meet the direct needs of the country(s) concerned;

– extension of the regulatory time-limit for bringing into use:

– conditions could be specified under which extensions might be granted on an exceptional basis to developing countries when they are not able to complete the regulatory date requirements, so that sufficient time for design, construction and launch of satellite systems is made available;

– the conditions created under the previous paragraph should be included in the Radio Regulations as provisions that would allow the Radiocommunication Bureau to grant the extension.

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that the band 47.2-50.2 GHz is allocated to the fixed, mobile and fixed-satellite services on a co-primary basis;

b) that WRC-97 made provision for operation of high altitude platform stations (HAPS), also known as stratospheric repeaters, within the fixed service in the bands 47.2-47.5 GHz and 47.9-48.2 GHz;

c) that establishing a stable technical and regulatory environment will promote the use of all co-primary services in the band 47.2-47.5 GHz and 47.9-48.2 GHz;

d) that systems using HAPS are in an advanced stage of development and some countries have notified such systems to ITU in the bands 47.2-47.5 GHz and 47.9-48.2 GHz;

e) that Recommendation ITU-R F.1500 contains the characteristics of systems in the fixed service using HAPS in the bands 47.2-47.5 GHz and 47.9-48.2 GHz;

f) that while the decision to deploy HAPS can be taken on a national basis, such deployment may affect neighbouring administrations and operators of co-primary services;

g) that ITU-R has completed studies dealing with sharing between systems using HAPS in the fixed service and other types of systems in the fixed service in the bands 47.2-47.5 GHz and 47.9-48.2 GHz;

h) that ITU-R has completed studies on compatibility between HAPS systems in the 47.2-47.5 GHz and 47.9-48.2 GHz bands and the radio astronomy service in the 48.94-49.04 GHz band;

i) that No. 5.552 urges administrations to take all practicable steps to reserve fixed-satellite service (FSS) use of the band 47.2-49.2 GHz for feeder links for the broadcasting-satellite service (BSS) operating in the band 40.5-42.5 GHz, and that ITU-R studies indicate that HAPS in the fixed service may share with such feeder links;

j) that the technical characteristics of expected BSS feeder links and FSS gateway-type stations are similar;

k) that ITU-R has completed studies dealing with sharing between systems using HAPS in the fixed service and the fixed-satellite service,

recognizing

a) that, in the long term, the bands 47.2-47.5 GHz and 47.9-48.2 GHz are expected to be required for HAPS operations for both gateway and ubiquitous terminal applications, for which several administrations have already notified systems to the Radiocommunication Bureau;

b) that identification of common sub-bands for ubiquitous ground terminal applications in the use of the fixed service could facilitate HAPS deployment and sharing with other primary services in the 47.2-47.5 GHz and 47.9-48.2 GHz bands;

c) that Recommendation ITU-R SF.1481-1 and Recommendation ITU-R SF.1843 provide information on the feasibility of HAPS systems in the fixed service sharing with the FSS;

d) that ITU-R studies on HAPS operation in the bands 47.2-47.5 GHz and 47.9-48.2 GHz allocated to the fixed service have concluded that, in order to share with FSS (Earth-to-space), the maximum uplink transmit e.i.r.p. density of HAPS ground terminals in the bands should, in clear-sky conditions, be 6.4 dB(W/MHz) for Urban Area Coverage (UAC), 22.57 dB(W/MHz) for Suburban Area Coverage (SAC) and 28 dB(W/MHz) for Rural Area Coverage (RAC), and that these values can be increased by up to 5 dB during periods of rain;

e) that ITU-R studies have established specific power flux-density values to be met at international borders to facilitate bilateral agreement on sharing conditions for HAPS with other types of fixed service systems in a neighbouring country;

f) that FSS satellite networks and systems with earth station antenna diameters of 2.5 metres or larger operating as a gateway-type station are capable of sharing with ubiquitous HAPS terminals,

resolves

RESOLUTION 143 (Rev.WRC-07)

Guidelines for the implementation of high-density applications in thefixed-satellite service in frequency bands identified for these applications

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that demand has been increasing steadily for global broadband communication services throughout the world, such as those provided by high-density applications in the fixed-satellite service (HDFSS);

b) that HDFSS systems are characterized by flexible, rapid and ubiquitous deployment of large numbers of cost-optimized earth stations employing small antennas and having common technical characteristics;

c) that HDFSS is an advanced broadband communication application concept that will provide access to a wide range of broadband telecommunication applications supported by fixed telecommunication networks (including the Internet), and thus will complement other telecommunication systems;

d) that, as with other FSS systems, HDFSS offers great potential to establish telecommunication infrastructure rapidly;

e) that HDFSS applications can be provided by satellites of any orbital type;

f) that interference mitigation techniques have been and continue to be studied in ITU-R to facilitate sharing between HDFSS earth stations and terrestrial services;

g) that to date, studies have not concluded on the practicability of implementation of interference mitigation techniques for all HDFSS earth stations,

noting

a) that No. 5.516B identifies bands for HDFSS;

b) that, in some of these bands, the FSS allocations are co-primary with fixed and mobile service allocations as well as other services;

c) that this identification does not preclude the use of these bands by other services or by other FSS applications, and does not establish priority in these Radio Regulations among users of the bands;

d) that, in the band 18.6-18.8 GHz, the FSS allocation is co-primary with the Earth exploration-satellite service (EESS) (passive) with the restrictions of Nos. 5.522A and 5.522B;

e) that radio astronomy observations are carried out in the 48.94-49.04 GHz band, and that such observations require protection at notified radio astronomy stations;

f) that co-frequency sharing between transmitting HDFSS earth stations and terrestrial services is difficult in the same geographical area;

g) that co-frequency sharing between receiving HDFSS earth stations and terrestrial stations in the same geographical area may be facilitated through the implementation of interference mitigation techniques, if practicable;

h) that many FSS systems with other types of earth stations and characteristics have already been brought into use or are planned to be brought into use in some of the frequency bands identified for HDFSS in No. 5.516B;

i) that HDFSS stations in these bands are expected to be deployed in large numbers over urban, suburban and rural areas of large geographical extent;

j) that the 50.2-50.4 GHz band, adjacent to the band 48.2-50.2 GHz (Earth-to-space) identified for HDFSS in Region 2, is allocated to the EESS (passive),

recognizing

a) that in cases where FSS earth stations use bands that are shared on a co-primary basis with terrestrial services, the Radio Regulations stipulate that earth stations of the FSS shall be individually notified to the Bureau when their coordination contours extend into the territory of another administration;

b) that, as a consequence of their general characteristics, it is expected that the coordination of HDFSS earth stations with fixed service stations on an individual site-by-site basis between administrations will be a difficult and long process;

c) that, to minimize the burden for administrations, simplified coordination procedures and provisions can be agreed by administrations for large numbers of similar HDFSS earth stations associated with a given satellite system;

d) that harmonized worldwide bands for HDFSS would facilitate the implementation of HDFSS, thereby helping to maximize global access and economies of scale,

recognizing further

that HDFSS applications implemented on FSS networks and systems are subject to all provisions of the Radio Regulations applicable to the FSS, such as coordination and notification pursuant to Articles 9 and 11, including any requirements to coordinate with terrestrial services of other countries, and the provisions of Articles 21 and 22,

resolves

that administrations which implement HDFSS should consider the following guidelines:

a) making some or all of the frequency bands identified in No. 5.516B available for HDFSS applications;

b) in making frequency bands available under resolves a), take into account:

– that HDFSS deployment will be simplified in bands that are not shared with terrestrial services;

– in bands shared with terrestrial services, the impact that the further deployment of terrestrial stations would have on the existing and future development of HDFSS, and the further deployment of HDFSS earth stations would have on the existing and future development of terrestrial services;

c) take into account the relevant technical characteristics applicable to HDFSS, as identified by ITU-R Recommendations (e.g. Recommendations ITU-R S.524-9, ITU-R S.1594 and ITU-R S.1783);

d) take into account other existing and planned FSS systems, having different characteristics, in frequency bands where HDFSS is implemented in accordance with resolves a) above and the conditions specified in No. 5.516B,

invites administrations

1 to give due consideration to the benefits of harmonized utilization of the spectrum for HDFSS on a global basis, taking into account the use and planned use of these bands by all other services to which these bands are allocated, as well as other types of FSS applications;

2 to consider implementing simplified procedures and provisions that facilitate the deployment of HDFSS systems in some or all of the bands identified in No. 5.516B;

3 when considering the deployment of HDFSS systems in the upper portion of the band 48.2-50.2 GHz, to take into account as appropriate the potential impact such deployment may have on the satellite passive services in the adjacent band 50.2-50.4 GHz, and to participate in ITU-R studies on the compatibility between these services, taking into account No. 5.340;

4 to consider, given invites administrations 3 above, and where practicable, starting the deployment of HDFSS earth stations in the lower part of the band 48.2-50.2 GHz.

RESOLUTION 144 (Rev.WRC-07)

Special requirements of geographically small or narrow countriesoperating earth stations in the fixed-satellite servicein the band 13.75-14 GHz

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that WARC-92 made an additional allocation to the fixed-satellite service (FSS) (Earth-to-space) in the band 13.75-14 GHz;

b) that this band is shared with the radiolocation and radionavigation services;

c) that, following a decision by WRC-2000 and the completion of ITU-R studies, WRC-03 reviewed and revised the sharing conditions for the services in this band and adopted new regulations which govern sharing between the FSS, radiolocation and radionavigation services (see No. 5.502);

d) that these revised sharing conditions additionally permit the operation of geostationary FSS earth stations in the band 13.75-14 GHz with antennas having diameters between 1.2 m and 4.5 m,

recognizing

a) that these sharing conditions of No. 5.502 will mean that countries which are geographically small or narrow will have significant difficulties deploying geostationary FSS earth stations in this band with antennas having diameters between 1.2 m and 4.5 m;

b) that in order to further facilitate sharing between the FSS and the maritime radiolocation systems operating in the radiolocation service, there may be a need to develop technical and operational methods;

c) that these technical and operational methods may be used to allow a greater deployment of FSS earth stations in the band 13.75-14 GHz in conformity with No. 5.502 while protecting the radiolocation service,

resolves

1 to continue inviting ITU-R, to pursue its studies as a matter of urgency, with a view to developing ITU-R Recommendations, which will establish technical or operational methods which will further facilitate sharing and may allow greater flexibility in the deployment of FSS earth stations in the band 13.75-14 GHz, having regard to No. 5.502, and which may also be used as a basis for the establishment of bilateral agreements between concerned administrations;

2 that the administrations of geographically small or narrow countries may exceed the limitations on FSS earth station power flux-density at the low-water mark in No. 5.502 if such operation is in conformance with bilateral agreements with administrations deploying maritime radiolocation systems in the band 13.75-14 GHz, this being in order to provide due consideration to administrations of geographically small or narrow countries,

encourages

administrations deploying maritime and land mobile radiolocation systems in the band 13.75-14 GHz to rapidly reach bilateral agreements relating to the operation of FSS earth stations in this band with administrations of those geographically small or narrow countries deploying these FSS earth stations, this being in order to provide due consideration to administrations of geographically small or narrow countries,

invites

1 administrations deploying maritime radiolocation systems in the band 13.75 to 14 GHz to participate actively in the ITU-R studies referred to in resolves 1;

2 administrations of geographically small or narrow countries to also contribute to the above studies.

Use of the bands 27.9-28.2 GHz and 31-31.3 GHzby high altitude platform stationsin the fixed service

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that WRC-97 made provision for the operation of high altitude platform stations (HAPS), also known as stratospheric repeaters, within a 2 × 300 MHz portion of the fixed-service allocation in the bands 47.2-47.5 GHz and 47.9-48.2 GHz;

b) that WRC-97 adopted No. 4.15A specifying that transmissions to or from HAPS shall be limited to the bands specifically identified in Article 5;

c) that at WRC-2000, several countries in Region 3 and one country in Region 1 expressed a need for a lower frequency band for HAPS due to the excessive rain attenuation that occurs at 47 GHz in these countries;

d) that some countries in Region 2 have also expressed an interest in using a frequency range lower than those referred to in considering a);

e) that, in order to accommodate the need expressed by the countries referred to in considering c), WRC-2000 adopted Nos. 5.537A and 5.543A, which were modified at WRC-03 and then again at WRC-07 to permit the use of HAPS in the fixed service in the band 27.9-28.2 GHz and in the band 31-31.3 GHz in certain Region 1 and 3 countries on a non-harmful interference, non-protection basis;

f) that the bands 27.9-28.2 GHz and 31-31.3 GHz are already heavily used or planned to be used by a number of different services and a number of other types of applications in the fixed service;

g) that while the decision to deploy HAPS can be taken on a national basis, such deployment may affect neighbouring administrations, particularly in small countries;

h) that the 31.3-31.8 GHz band is allocated to the radio astronomy, Earth exploration-satellite (passive) and space research (passive) services, and that WRC-03 amended No. 5.543A to specify signal levels that would protect satellite passive services and radio astronomy stations;

j) that results of some ITU-R studies indicate that, in the bands 27.9-28.2 GHz and 31-31.3 GHz, sharing between fixed-service systems using HAPS and other conventional fixed-service systems in the same area will require appropriate interference mitigation techniques to be developed and implemented;

k) that ITU-R has conducted studies dealing with compatibility between systems using HAPS and the passive services in the 31.3-31.8 GHz band leading to Recommendations ITU-R F.1570 and ITU-R F.1612;

l) that ITU-R has produced Recommendation ITU-R SF.1601 containing methodologies for evaluating interference from fixed-service systems using HAPS into GSO FSS systems in the band 27.9-28.2 GHz;

m) that HAPS technical issues could continue to be studied in order to determine appropriate measures for protecting the fixed service and other co-primary services in the band 27.9-28.2 GHz,

resolves

1 that, notwithstanding No. 4.15A, in Region 2 the use of HAPS within the fixed-service allocations within the 27.9-28.2 GHz and 31-31.3 GHz bands shall not cause harmful interference to, nor claim protection from, other stations of services operating in accordance with the Table of Frequency Allocations of Article 5, and, further, that the development of these other services shall proceed without constraints by HAPS operating pursuant to this Resolution;

2 that any use by HAPS of the fixed-service allocation at 27.9-28.2 GHz pursuant to resolves 1 above shall be limited to operation in the HAPS-to-ground direction, and that any use by HAPS of the fixed-service allocation at 31-31.3 GHz shall be limited to operation in the ground-to-HAPS direction;

RESOLUTION 212 (Rev.WRC-07)

Implementation of International Mobile Telecommunicationsin the bands 1 885-2 025 MHz and 2 110-2 200 MHz

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT) includes IMT-2000 and IMT Advanced;

b) that ITU-R, for WRC-97, recommended approximately 230 MHz for use by the terrestrial and satellite components of IMT-2000;

c) that ITU-R studies forecast that additional spectrum may be required to support the future services of IMT-Advanced and to accommodate future user requirements and network deployments;

d) that ITU-R has recognized that space techniques are an integral part of IMT;

e) that, in No. 5.388, WARC-92 identified bands to accommodate certain mobile services, now called IMT,

noting

a) that the terrestrial component of IMT has already been deployed or is being considered for deployment in the bands 1 885-2 025 MHz and 2 110-2 200 MHz;

b) that the availability of the satellite component of IMT in the bands 1 980-2 010 MHz and 2 170-2 200 MHz simultaneously with the terrestrial component of IMT in the bands identified in No. 5.388 would improve the overall implementation and the attractiveness of IMT,

resolves

that administrations which implement IMT:

a) should make the necessary frequencies available for system development;

b) should use those frequencies when IMT is implemented;

c) should use the relevant international technical characteristics, as identified by ITU-R and ITU-T Recommendations,

invites administrations

to give due consideration to the accommodation of other services currently operating in these bands when implementing IMT,

invites ITU-R

to continue its studies with a view to developing suitable and acceptable technical characteristics for IMT that will facilitate worldwide use and roaming, and ensure that IMT can also meet the telecommunication needs of the developing countries and rural areas.

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that the bands 1 885-2 025 MHz and 2 110-2 200 MHz are identified in No. 5.388 as intended for use on a worldwide basis for IMT, including the bands 1 980-2 010 MHz and 2 170-2 200 MHz for the terrestrial and satellite components of IMT;

b) that a high altitude platform station (HAPS) is defined in No. 1.66A as “a station located on an object at an altitude of 20 to 50 km and at a specified, nominal, fixed point relative to the Earth”;

c) that HAPS may offer a new means of providing IMT services with minimal network infrastructure as they are capable of providing service to a large footprint together with a dense coverage;

d) that the use of HAPS as base stations within the terrestrial component of IMT is optional for administrations, and that such use should not have any priority over other terrestrial IMT use;

e) that, in accordance with No. 5.388 and Resolution 212 (Rev.WRC-97), administrations may use the bands identified for IMT, including the bands referred to in this Resolution, for stations of other primary services to which they are allocated;

f) that these bands are allocated to the fixed and mobile services on a co-primary basis;

Their use by IMT applications using HAPS as base stations does not preclude the use of these bands by any station in the services to which they are allocated and does not establish priority in the Radio Regulations;

h) that ITU-R has studied sharing and coordination between HAPS and other stations within IMT, has considered compatibility of HAPS within IMT with some services having allocations in the adjacent bands, and has approved Recommendation ITU-R M.1456;

i) that radio interfaces of IMT HAPS are compliant with Recommendation ITU-R M.1457;

j) that ITU-R has addressed sharing between systems using HAPS and some existing systems, particularly PCS (personal communications system), MMDS (multichannel multipoint distribution system) and systems in the fixed service, which are currently operating in some countries in the bands 1 885-2 025 MHz and 2 110-2 200 MHz;

Use of the bands 1 525-1 559 MHz and 1 626.5-1 660.5 MHzby the mobile-satellite service, and studies to ensure long-termspectrum availability for the aeronautical mobile-satellite (R)service

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that prior to WRC-97, the bands 1 530-1 544 MHz (space-to-Earth) and 1 626.5-1 645.5 MHz (Earth-to-space) were allocated to the maritime mobile-satellite service and the bands 1 545-1 555 MHz (space-to-Earth) and 1 646.5-1 656.5 MHz (Earth-to-space) were allocated on an exclusive basis to the aeronautical mobile-satellite (R) service (AMS(R)S) in most countries;

b) that WRC-97 allocated the bands 1 525-1 559 MHz (space-to-Earth) and 1 626.5-1 660.5 MHz (Earth-to-space) to the mobile-satellite service (MSS) to facilitate the assignment of spectrum to multiple MSS systems in a flexible and efficient manner;

c) that WRC-97 adopted No. 5.353A giving priority to accommodating spectrum requirements for and protecting from unacceptable interference distress, urgency and safety communications of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) in the bands 1 530-1 544 MHz and 1 626.5-1 645.5 MHz and No. 5.357A giving priority to accommodating spectrum requirements for and protecting from unacceptable interference the AMS(R)S providing transmission of messages with priority categories 1 to 6 in Article 44 in the bands 1 545-1 555 MHz and 1 646.5-1 656.5 MHz;

d) that AMS(R)S is an essential element of ICAO CNS/ATM to provide safety and regularity of flight in the civil air transportation,

further considering

a) that coordination between satellite networks is required on a bilateral basis in accordance with the Radio Regulations, and, in the bands 1 525-1 559 MHz (space-to-Earth) and 1 626.5-1 660.5 MHz (Earth-to-space), coordination is partially assisted by regional multilateral meetings;

b) that, in these bands, geostationary satellite system operators currently use a capacity-planning approach at multilateral coordination meetings, with the guidance and support of their administrations, to periodically coordinate access to the spectrum needed to accommodate their requirements;

c) that spectrum requirements for MSS networks, including the GMDSS and AMS(R)S , are currently accommodated through the capacity-planning approach and that, in the bands to which Nos. 5.353A or 5.357A apply, this approach, and other methods may assist in accommodating the expected increase of spectrum requirements for GMDSS and AMS(R)S;

d) that Report ITU-R M.2073 has concluded that prioritization and inter-system pre-emption between different mobile-satellite systems is not practical and, without a significant advance in technology, is unlikely to be feasible for technical, operational and economical reasons. It summarized that prioritization and intersystem real-time pre-emption would not necessarily increase the efficiency of spectrum use compared to the current situation, but it would certainly complicate substantially the coordination process and network structure;

e) that there is existing and increasing demand for spectrum for AMS(R)S and non-AMS(R)S by several mobile satellite systems in the bands 1 525-1 559 MHz and 1 626.5-1 660.5 MHz, and that the application of this Resolution may impact the provision of services by non-AMS(R)S systems in the mobile satellite service;

f) that future requirements for AMS(R)S and GMDSS spectrum may require additional allocations,

recognizing

a) that absolute priority to all telecommunications concerning safety of life at sea, on land, in air or in outer space is given by No. 191 of the ITU Constitution;

b) that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has adopted Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) addressing satellite communications with aircraft in accordance with the Convention on International Civil Aviation;

c) that all air traffic communications as defined in Annex 10 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation fall within priority categories 1 to 6 of Article 44;

d) that Table 15-2 of Appendix 15 identifies the bands 1 530-1 544 MHz (space-to-Earth) and 1 626.5-1 645.5 MHz (Earth-to-space) for distress and safety purposes in the maritime mobile-satellite service as well as for routine non-safety purposes,

resolves

1 that, in frequency coordination of MSS in the bands 1 525-1 559 MHz and 1 626.5-1 660.5 MHz, administrations shall ensure that the spectrum needed for distress, urgency and safety communications of GMDSS, as elaborated in Articles 32 and 33, in the bands where No. 5.353A applies, and for AMS(R)S communications within priority categories 1 to 6 of Article 44 in the bands where No. 5.357A applies is accommodated;

2 that administrations shall ensure the use of the latest technical advances, in order to achieve the most flexible and practical use of the generic allocations;

3 that administrations shall ensure that MSS operators carrying non-safety-related traffic yield capacity, as and when necessary, to accommodate the spectrum requirements for distress, urgency and safety communication of GMDSS communications, as elaborated in Articles 32 and 33, and for AMS(R)S communications within priority categories 1 to 6 of Article 44; this could be achieved in advance through the coordination process in resolves 1, and, when necessary, through other means if such means are identified as a result of studies in invites ITU-R ,

invites ITU-R

to conduct, in time for consideration by WRC-11, the appropriate technical, operational and regulatory studies to ensure long-term spectrum availability for the aeronautical mobile-satellite (R) service (AMS(R)S) including:

(i) to study, as a matter of urgency, the existing and future spectrum requirements of the aeronautical mobile-satellite (R) service;

(ii) to assess whether the long-term requirements of the AMS(R)S can be met within the existing allocations with respect to No. 5.357A while retaining unchanged the generic allocation for the mobile-satellite service in the bands 1 525-1 559 MHz and 1 626.5-1 660.5 MHz, and without placing undue constraints on the existing systems operating in accordance with the Radio Regulations;

(iii) to complete studies to determine the feasibility and practicality of technical or regulatory means, other than the coordination process referred to in resolves 1 or the means considered in Report ITU-R M.2073, in order to ensure adequate access to spectrum to accommodate the AMS(R)S requirements as referenced in resolves 3 above, while taking into account the latest technical advances in order to maximize spectral efficiency;

(iv) if the assessment identified in invites ITU-R (i) and (ii) indicates that these requirements cannot be met, to study existing MSS allocations or possible, new allocations only for satisfying the requirements of the aeronautical mobile satellite (R) service for communications with priority categories 1 to 6 of Article 44, for global and seamless operation of civil aviation taking into account the need to avoid undue constraints on existing systems and other services,

invites WRC-11

to consider the results of the above ITU-R studies and to take appropriate action on this subject, while retaining unchanged the generic allocation to the mobile-satellite service in the bands 1 525-1 559 MHz and 1 626.5-1 660.5 MHz,

c) that there is a need, in many developing countries and countries with large areas of low population density, for the cost-effective implementation of IMT, and that the propagation characteristics of frequency bands below 1 GHz identified in Nos 5.XXX* and 5.317A result in larger cells;

d) that the band 450-470 MHz, or parts of that band, is also allocated to services other than the mobile service;

e) that the band 460-470 MHz is also allocated to the meteorological-satellite service in accordance with No. 5.290;

f) that the frequency band 470-806/862 MHz is allocated to the broadcasting service on a primary basis in all three Regions and used predominantly by this service, and that the GE06 Agreement applies in all Region 1 countries, except Mongolia, and in the Islamic Republic of Iran in Region 3;

g) that the GE06 Agreement contains provisions for the terrestrial broadcasting service and other primary terrestrial services, a Plan for digital television, and a list of stations of other primary terrestrial services;

h) that the transition from analogue to digital television is expected to result in situations where the band 470-806/862 MHz will be used extensively for both analogue and digital terrestrial transmission, and the demand for spectrum during the transition period may be even greater than the stand-alone usage of analogue broadcasting systems;

i) that the time-frame and transition period for analogue to digital television switchover may not be the same for all countries;

j) that, after analogue to digital television switchover, some administrations may decide to use all or parts of the band 698-806/862 MHz for other services to which the band is allocated on a primary basis, in particular the mobile service for the implementation of IMT, while in other countries the broadcasting service will continue to operate in that band;

k) that in the band 470-862 MHz, or parts of that band, there is an allocation on a primary basis for the fixed service;

l) that, in some countries, the band 698-806/862 MHz is allocated to the mobile service on a primary basis;

m) that the band 645-862 MHz is allocated on a primary basis to the aeronautical radionavigation service in the countries listed in No. 5.312;

n) that the compatibility of the mobile service with the broadcasting, fixed and aeronautical radionavigation service in the band referred to in recognizing k) and m) will need further study in ITU-R,

emphasizing

a) that in all administrations terrestrial broadcasting is a vital part of the communication and information infrastructure;

b) that flexibility must be afforded to administrations:

– to determine, at a national level, how much spectrum to make available for IMT from within the identified bands, taking into account current uses of the spectrum and the needs of other applications;

– to develop their own transition plans, if necessary, tailored to meet their specific deployment of existing systems;

– to have the ability for the identified bands to be used by all services having allocations in those bands;

– to determine the timing of availability and use of the bands identified for IMT, in order to meet particular market demand and other national considerations;

c) that the particular needs and national conditions and circumstances of developing countries, including least-developed countries, highly-indebted poor countries with economies in transition, and countries with large territories and territories with a low-subscriber density, must be met;

d) that due consideration should be given to the benefits of harmonized utilization of the spectrum for the terrestrial component of IMT, taking into account the current and planned use of these bands by all services to which these bands are allocated;

e) that the use of frequency bands below 1 GHz for IMT also helps to “bridge the gap” between sparsely-populated areas and densely-populated areas in various countries;

f) that the identification of a band for IMT does not preclude the use of this band by other services or applications to which it is allocated;

g) that the use of the band 470-862 MHz by the broadcasting service and other primary services is also covered by the GE06 Agreement;

h) that the requirements of the different services to which the band is allocated, including the mobile and broadcasting services, need to be taken into account,

resolves

1 that administrations which are implementing, or planning to implement IMT, consider the use of bands identified for IMT below 1 GHz and the possibility of cellular-based mobile networks’ evolution to IMT, in the frequency band identified in Nos 5.XXX* and 5.317A, based on user demand and other considerations;

4 that administrations planning to implement IMT in the bands mentioned in resolves 2 shall effect coordination with all neighbouring administrations prior to implementation;

5 that in Region 1 (excluding Mongolia) and in the Islamic Republic of Iran the implementation of stations in the mobile service shall be subject to the applications of procedures contained in the GE06 Agreement. In so doing:

a) administrations which deploy stations in the mobile service for which coordination was not required, or without having obtained the prior consent of those administrations that may be affected, shall not cause unacceptable interference to, nor claim protection from, stations of the broadcasting service of administrations operating in conformity with the GE06 Agreement. This should include a signed commitment as required under § 5.2.6 of the GE06 Agreement;

b) administrations which deploy stations in the mobile service for which coordination was not required, or without having obtained the prior consent of those administrations that may be affected, shall not object nor prevent the entry into the GE06 plan or recording in the MIFR of additional future broadcasting allotments or assignments of any other administration in the GE06 Plan with reference to those stations;

6 that, in Region 2, implementation of IMT shall be subject to the decision of each administration on the transition from analogue to digital television,

invites ITU-R

that all ships subject to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974, as amended, are required to be fitted for the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS),

noting further

a) that a number of administrations have taken steps to implement the GMDSS also for classes of vessels not subject to SOLAS, 1974, as amended;

b) that an increasing number of vessels not subject to SOLAS, 1974, as amended, are making use of the techniques and frequencies of the GMDSS prescribed in Chapter VII;

c) that this Conference has amended Chapter VII to provide for maintaining interoperability between ships fitted for GMDSS and ships not yet fully equipped for GMDSS;

d) that there may be a need to maintain existing shore-based distress and safety services for the reception of distress, urgency and safety calling by voice on VHF channel 16 so that vessels not subject to SOLAS, 1974, as amended and not yet using the techniques and frequencies of the GMDSS will be able to attract attention and obtain assistance from these services;

e) that the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is of the view that SOLAS ships, while at sea, should be required to keep a listening watch on VHF channel 16, for the foreseeable future, with a view to providing:

– a distress alerting and communication channel for non-SOLAS ships; and

– bridge-to-bridge communications;

f) that IMO has urged administrations to require all seagoing vessels under national legislation, and encourage all vessels voluntarily carrying VHF radio equipment to be fitted with facilities for transmitting and receiving distress alerts by digital selective calling (DSC) on VHF channel 70;

g) that the Radio Regulations require GMDSS ships to keep watch on the appropriate DSC distress frequencies;

h) that separate provisions in the existing Radio Regulations designate VHF channel 16 as the international channel for general calling by radiotelephony;

i) that several administrations have established Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) systems and require their vessels to keep watch on local VTS channels;

j) that ships that are required by SOLAS to carry a radio station have been equipped with DSC, and many vessels subject to national carriage requirements are also being equipped with DSC, but the majority of vessels that carry a radio station on a voluntary basis might not yet have DSC equipment;

k) that similarly, many administrations have established distress and safety service based on DSC watchkeeping, but the majority of port stations, pilot stations and other operational coast stations might not yet have been equipped with DSC facilities;

Distress and safety radiotelephony procedures for 2 182 kHz

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

noting

a) that all ships subject to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974, as amended, are required to be fitted for the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS);

b) that some vessels not subject to SOLAS, 1974, as amended, may not be making use of the techniques and frequencies of GMDSS prescribed in Chapter VII and may wish to continue using radiotelephony procedures for distress and safety communications on 2 182 kHz until such time as they are able to participate in the GMDSS;

c) that some administrations may have a need to maintain shore-based radiotelephony distress and safety services on 2 182 kHz so that vessels not subject to SOLAS, 1974, as amended, and not yet using the techniques and frequencies of GMDSS will be able to obtain assistance from these services until such time as they are able to participate in GMDSS,

considering

that there needs to be some recognized guidance for the use of radiotelephony on 2 182 kHz for distress and safety communications,

resolves

1 that ships, when in distress or when engaged in urgency or safety-related communications on 2 182 kHz, use the radiotelephony procedures contained in the Annex to this Resolution;

2 that coast stations, in order to maintain communication with non-GMDSS ships that are in distress or engaged in urgency or safety related communications on 2 182 kHz, use the radiotelephony procedures contained in the Annex to this Resolution.

ANNEX TO RESOLUTION 354 (WRC-07)

Distress and safety radiotelephony procedures for 2 182 kHz*

PART A1 – GENERAL

§ 1 The frequencies and techniques specified in this Resolution may be used in the maritime mobile service for stations1 not required by national or international regulation to fit GMDSS equipment and for communications between those stations and aircraft. However, stations of the maritime mobile service, when additionally fitted with any of the equipment used by stations operating in conformity with the provisions specified in Chapter VII, should, when using that equipment, comply with the appropriate provisions of that Chapter.

§ 2 1) No provision of this Resolution prevents the use by a mobile station or mobile earth station in distress of any means at its disposal to attract attention, make known its position, and obtain help.

2) No provision of this Resolution prevents the use by stations on board aircraft or ships engaged in search and rescue operations, in exceptional circumstances, of any means at their disposal to assist a mobile station or mobile earth station in distress.

3) No provision of this Resolution prevents the use by a land station or coast earth station, in exceptional circumstances, of any means at its disposal to assist a mobile station or mobile earth station in distress (see also No. 4.16).

§ 3 In cases of distress, urgency or safety, communications by radiotelephony should be made slowly and distinctly, each word being clearly pronounced to facilitate transcription.

§ 4 The abbreviations and signals of Recommendation ITU-R M.1172 and the Phonetic Alphabet and Figure Code in Appendix 14 should be used where applicable2.

§ 5 Distress, urgency and safety communications may also be made using digital selective calling and satellite techniques and/or direct-printing telegraphy, in accordance with the provisions specified in Chapter VII and relevant ITU-R Recommendations.

§ 6 Mobile stations3 of the maritime mobile service may communicate for safety purposes with stations of the aeronautical mobile service. Such communications shall normally be made on the frequencies authorized, and under the conditions specified, in Section I of Part A2 (see also § 2 1)).

§ 6A Mobile stations of the aeronautical mobile service may communicate for distress and safety purposes with stations of the maritime mobile service in conformity with the provisions of this Resolution.

§ 7 Any aircraft required by national or international regulations to communicate for distress, urgency or safety purposes with stations of the maritime mobile service shall be capable of transmitting and receiving class J3E emissions when using the carrier frequency 2 182 kHz or the carrier frequency 4 125 kHz.

Part A2 – Frequencies for distress and safety

Section I – Availability of frequencies

A – 2 182 kHz

§ 1 1) The carrier frequency 2 182 kHz is an international distress frequency for radiotelephony; it may be used by ship, aircraft and survival craft stations when requesting assistance from the maritime services. It is used for distress calls and distress traffic, for the urgency signal and urgency messages and for the safety signal. Safety messages should be transmitted, when practicable, on a working frequency, after a preliminary announcement on 2 182 kHz. The class of emission to be used for radiotelephony on the frequency 2 182 kHz shall be J3E. Distress traffic on 2 182 kHz following the reception of a distress call using digital selective calling should take into account that some shipping in the vicinity may not be able to receive this traffic.

2) If a distress message on the carrier frequency 2 182 kHz has not been acknowledged, the distress call and message may be transmitted again on a carrier frequency of 4 125 kHz or 6 215 kHz, as appropriate.

3) However, ship stations and aircraft which cannot transmit either on the carrier frequency 2 182 kHz or on the carrier frequencies 4 125 kHz or 6 215 kHz may use any other available frequency on which attention might be attracted.

4) Coast stations using the carrier frequency 2 182 kHz for distress purposes and to send navigational warnings may transmit an audible alarm signal4 of short duration for the purpose of attracting attention to the message which follows.

B – 4 125 kHz

§ 2 1) The carrier frequency 4 125 kHz is used to supplement the carrier frequency 2 182 kHz for distress and safety purposes and for call and reply. This frequency is also used for distress and safety traffic by radiotelephony.

2) The carrier frequency 4 125 kHz may be used by aircraft to communicate with stations of the maritime mobile service for distress and safety purposes, including search and rescue.

C – 6 215 kHz

§ 3 The carrier frequency 6 215 kHz is used to supplement the carrier frequency 2 182 kHz for distress and safety purposes and for call and reply. This frequency is also used for distress and safety traffic by radiotelephony.

Section II – Protection of distress and safety frequencies

A – General

§ 4 Test transmissions on any of the distress and safety frequencies described above shall be kept to a minimum and, wherever practicable, be carried out on artificial antennas or with reduced power.

§ 5 Before transmitting on any of the frequencies identified for distress and safety communications, a station shall listen on the frequency concerned to make sure that no distress transmission is being sent (see Recommendation ITU-R M.1171). This does not apply to stations in distress.

B – 2 182 kHz

§ 6 1) Except for transmissions authorized on the carrier frequency 2 182 kHz and on the frequencies 2 174.5 kHz, 2 177 kHz, 2 187.5 kHz and 2 189.5 kHz, all transmissions on the frequencies between 2 173.5 kHz and 2 190.5 kHz are forbidden (see also Appendix 15).

2) To facilitate the reception of distress calls, all transmissions on 2 182 kHz should be kept to a minimum.

Section III – Watch on distress frequencies

A – 2 182 kHz

§ 7 1) Coast stations may maintain a watch on the carrier frequency 2182 kHz if so directed by their Administration. Such assignments should be indicated in the List of Coast Stations and Special Service Stations.

2) Ship stations not fitted with equipment compatible with the GMDSS are encouraged to keep the maximum watch practicable on the carrier frequency 2 182 kHz.

B – 4 125 kHz, 6 215 kHz

§ 8 Coast stations may maintain additional watch, as permitted, on the carrier frequencies 4 125 kHz and 6 215 kHz. Such assignments should be indicated in the List of Coast Stations and Special Service Stations.

Part A3 – Distress communications

Section I – General

§ 1 The general provisions for distress communications are found in Section I of Article 32 (see Nos. 32.1, 32.3, and 32.4).

Section II – Distress signal, call and message

§ 2 The radiotelephone distress signal, call and message are described in Section II of Article 32 (see Nos. 32.13Bbis, 32.9, 32.13B, 32.13C, and 32.13D).

Section III – Procedures

§ 3 After the transmission by radiotelephony of its distress message, the mobile station may be requested to transmit suitable signals, followed by its call sign or other identification, to permit direction-finding stations to determine its position. This request may be repeated at frequent intervals if necessary.

ANNEX 1 TO RESOLUTION 418 (WRC-07)

1 In implementing aeronautical mobile telemetry (AMT), administrations shall utilize the following criteria:

– limit transmissions to those from aircraft stations only (see No. 1.83);

– the operation of aeronautical telemetry systems within the band 5 091-5 150 MHz shall be coordinated with administrations operating microwave landing systems (MLS) and whose territory is located within a distance D of the AMT flight area, where D is determined by the following equation:

D = 43 + 10(127.55 − 20 log(f) + E)/20

where:

D: separation distance (km) triggering the coordination

f: minimum frequency (MHz) used by the AMT system

E: peak equivalent isotropically radiated power density (dBW in 150 kHz) of the aircraft transmitter.

2 For the protection of the fixed-satellite service (FSS), a telemetry aircraft station in the band 5 091-5 250 MHz shall be operated in such a manner that one aircraft station transmitter power flux-density be limited to −198.9 dB(W/(m2 · Hz)) at the FSS satellite orbit for spacecraft using Earth coverage receive antennas. Such pfd limit per aircraft transmitter has been derived under the assumptions that the FSS satellite orbit is at 1 414 km altitude and that a total of 21 co-frequency AMT transmitters operate concurrently within the field of view of the FSS satellite. In case of fewer than 21 AMT co-frequency transmitters operating simultaneously in view of the satellite, the transmitter power can be adjusted so as not to exceed an aggregate pfd at the satellite of −185.7 dB(W/(m2 · Hz)), which corresponds to a ΔTsatellite/Tsatellite of 1%.

3 For the protection of the mobile service in the 5 150-5 250 MHz frequency band, the maximum pfd produced at the surface of the Earth by emissions from an aircraft station of an aeronautical mobile service system, limited to transmissions of telemetry for flight testing, shall not exceed: −79.4 dB(W/(m2 · 20 MHz)) – Gr(θ).

Gr(θ) represents the mobile service receiver antenna gain versus elevation angle θ and is defined as follows:

Wireless access system elevation antenna pattern

Elevation angle, θ (degrees) Gain Gr(θ)(dBi) 45 ( θ ( 90 –4 35 ( θ ( 45 –3 0 ( θ ( 35 0 –15 ( θ ( 0 –1 –30 ( θ ( –15 –4 –60 ( θ ( –30 –6 –90 ( θ ( –60 –5

4 For the protection of the aeronautical mobile (R) service (AM(R)S) in the frequency band 5 091-5 150 MHz, the maximum pfd produced at the surface of the Earth, where AM(R)S may be deployed in accordance with No. 5.4B03, by emissions from an aircraft station of an aeronautical mobile service system, limited to transmissions of telemetry for flight testing, shall not exceed: −89.4 dB(W/(m2 ( 20 MHz)) – Gr(θ).

Gr(θ) represents the mobile service receiver antenna gain versus elevation angle θ and is defined as follows:

Recognition of systems in the meteorological aids servicein the frequency range below 20 kHz

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that lightning detection systems used by meteorological organizations are long-established, passive applications which have operational, safety-of-life considerations providing warnings of extreme weather events to a range of organizations and customers including emergency services, aviation, defence, the utilities and the public;

b) that although lightning strikes emit electromagnetic waves over a range of frequencies, the propagation characteristics below 20 kHz make the frequency range of about 9 kHz to 20 kHz the most suitable for detection;

c) that to avoid interference in certain parts of the world, the centre frequency of a current international network of lightning detection stations, which had been centred on 9.765625 kHz since 1939, has recently had to be moved to 13.733 kHz;

d) that other lightning detection systems often use a combination of UHF and LF frequencies, but these provide more limited coverage than systems operating at VLF frequencies;

e) that it is expected that between 30 and 40 reception stations would be needed at VLF frequencies to provide global coverage;

f) that these systems have coexisted with services already having allocations in potential spectrum for systems in the meteorological aid service for a considerable period of time without interference,

recognizing

a) that the accurate location of lightning is important to public safety. As well as the dangers of the lightning strike itself, thunderstorms can result in intense precipitation with consequent flooding, severe icing, wind shear, turbulence and gusting winds;

b) that recent instances of interference have increased concerns that lightning detection systems may not be able to maintain the quality of service or to provide global coverage unless recognition is afforded to these systems in the Radio Regulations, and coordination with other services is carried out properly;

c) that this passive use is poorly protected at present;

d) that it is desirable to allocate frequencies to the meteorological aids service for lightning detection systems in spectrum which is not shared with high-power systems,

noting

a) that the 3 dB bandwidth of existing lightning detection systems is approximately 2.5 kHz and hence an allocation of between 3 and 5 kHz bandwidth would be required;

b) that the proposed allocation is not intended to prevent the development of other services in the same frequency band but for this to be done in a regulated manner. ITU-R may need to develop the appropriate sharing criteria, taking into account both in-band and adjacent band services,

resolves

1 to invite ITU-R to conduct, and complete in time for WRC-11, the required studies leading to technical and procedural recommendations to the Conference enabling it to decide on an appropriate method of providing recognition to long-established systems, including the possibility of making an allocation to the meteorological aids service in the frequency range below 20 kHz;

2 that the studies referred to in resolves 1, without placing constraints on existing services operating in accordance with the Radio Regulations, shall include sharing and compatibility studies with services already having allocations in potential spectrum for systems in the meteorological aids service taking into account the needs of other services,

b) that this band is currently used by non-geostationary polar orbiting meteorological satellites transmitting typically in data dump modes to large earth stations;

c) the maximum contact times between satellites and corresponding earth stations occur at high latitudes resulting in optimum deployment of such earth stations at high latitudes in the northern and the southern hemispheres;

d) that the bandwidth requirements for transmission of data from high-resolution sensors on the next-generation non-geostationary meteorological satellites planned to be launched in the time-frame 2017-2020 are in excess of 100 MHz;

e) that an extension of the current allocation by 50 MHz would be necessary to accommodate future data transmission requirements;

f) that the band 7 850-7 900 MHz is allocated to exactly the same services as the band 7 750-7 850 MHz and would be a prime candidate for extension of the current allocation to the meteorological-satellite service;

g) that ITU-R studies conducted prior to WRC-97 concluded that sharing between the meteorological-satellite service and the fixed service is possible with ample margins resulting to the allocation of the band 7 750-7 850 MHz,

recognizing

1 that the data obtained by these meteorological satellites are essential for global weather forecast, climate changes and hazard predictions;

2 that existing systems need to be duly protected,

resolves

RESOLUTION 729 (Rev.WRC-07)

Use of frequency adaptive systems in the MF and HF bands*

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that the efficiency of spectrum use will be improved by the use of frequency adaptive systems in the MF and HF bands shared by the fixed and the mobile services;

b) that trials and deployment of frequency adaptive systems have been under way during the past 30 years and have demonstrated the effectiveness of such systems and improved spectrum efficiency;

c) that such improved efficiency is attained through:

– shorter call set-up and improved transmission quality by selection of the most suitable assigned channels;

– reduced channel occupancy, permitting the same channels to be used by different networks, yet decreasing the probability of harmful interference;

– minimization of the transmitter power required for each transmission;

– continued optimization of the emissions owing to the sophistication of the systems;

– simple operation by the use of intelligent peripheral equipment;

– reduced need for skilled radio operators;

d) that following WRC-95, the Radiocommunication Bureau no longer undertakes examination with respect to the probability of harmful interference caused by new assignments recorded in the Master International Frequency Register (MIFR) in the non-planned bands below 28 MHz;

e) that WRC-97 introduced a means for notification of block assignments;

f) that frequency adaptive systems will actively contribute to the avoidance of interference since, when other signals are observed on the channel, the frequency adaptive system will move to another frequency,

resolves

1 that, in authorizing the operation of frequency adaptive systems in the fixed and mobile services for the MF and HF bands, administrations shall:

1.1 not make assignments in those bands:

– governed by the Appendix 25 frequency allotment Plan for the maritime mobile service or the Appendix 27 frequency allotment Plan for the aeronautical mobile (R) service;

– shared on a co-primary basis with the broadcasting service, radiodetermination service or the amateur services;

– allocated to the radio astronomy service;

1.2 avoid use which may affect frequency assignments involving safety services made in accordance with Nos. 5.155, 5.155A and 5.155B;

1.3 take into account any footnotes applicable to the proposed bands and the implications regarding compatibility;

2 that frequency adaptive systems shall automatically limit simultaneous use of frequencies to the minimum necessary for communication requirements;

3 that, with a view to avoiding harmful interference, frequency adaptive systems should evaluate the channel occupancy prior to and during operation;

4 that assignments for frequency adaptive systems shall be notified to the Bureau in accordance with the provisions of Article 11 and Appendix 4.

Studies for spectrum identification for gateway links for high-altitude platform stations in the range from 5 850 to 7 500 MHz

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that ITU has among its purposes “to promote the extension of the benefit of the new telecommunication technologies to all the world’s inhabitants” (No. 6 of the Constitution);

b) that systems based on new technologies using high altitude platform stations (HAPS) can potentially be used for various applications such as the provision of high-capacity services to urban and rural areas;

c) that provision has been made in the Radio Regulations for the deployment of HAPS in specific bands, including as base stations to serve IMT-2000 networks (Article 11);

d) that it is desirable to have adequate provision for gateway links to serve HAPS operations;

e) that ITU-R has studied spectrum sharing between HAPS as a fixed service with other fixed services and with fixed-satellite services in much higher bands, as well as the regulatory considerations to avoid interference to services in neighbouring countries,

recognizing

a) that ITU-R has studied the sharing of HAPS with fixed services in part of the 6 GHz band resulting in Recommendation ITU-R F.1764, which provides a methodology for interference evaluation that could be used for sharing studies between fixed services systems and HAPS;

b) that as in some areas the bands may be saturated with other fixed service use and it would be desirable to have greater flexibility in the choice of spectrum for gateway operations in support of HAPS networks;

c) that the World Summit on the Information Society has encouraged the development and application of emerging technologies to facilitate infrastructure and network development worldwide with special focus on underserved regions and areas;

d) that the allocations to the fixed-satellite service in the band 5 9256 425 MHz are heavily used for Earth-to-space links providing telecommunication services, and that are particularly important for the development of infrastructure in developing countries through the deployment of VSAT capabilities;

e) that more than 160 geostationary satellites currently in operation use frequencies in the range 5 850-6 725 MHz and such use will continue to grow in the future;

f) that No. 5.441 in the band 6 725-7 025 MHz is used by uplinks in the FSS Plan of Appendix 30B of the Radio Regulations (see No. 5.441), and, while the band 5 150-5 250 is used by uplinks on non-geostationary-satellite systems (see No. 5.447A);

g) that the Earth-to-space transmissions in the FSS described in “recognizingd), e) and f) above will have levels much higher than those in HAPS systems and have therefore the potential for causing interference to HAPS receivers either on the ground or on the platform;

h) that in view of recognizing g), HAPS use of frequencies around 6 GHz may be limited by current FSS transmit earth stations while protection of HAPS receivers may limit future deployment of these FSS earth stations,

resolves

1 to invite ITU-R to extend the sharing studies, with a view to identifying two channels of 80 MHz each for gateway links for HAPS in the range from 5 850 to 7 500 MHz, in bands already allocated to the fixed service, while ensuring the protection of existing services;

2 to recommend to WRC-11 to review the extended studies, with a view to taking an appropriate decision for the deployment of HAPS gateway links to service the relevant stratospheric base station operations and support for these networks,

encourages administrations

to contribute actively to the sharing studies in accordance with this Resolution.

RESOLUTION 739 (Rev.WRC-07)

Compatibility between the radio astronomy service and the activespace services in certain adjacent and nearby frequency bands

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that adjacent or nearby primary service allocations have been made to the radio astronomy service, and to various space services, such as the fixed-satellite service (FSS), radionavigation-satellite service (RNSS), mobile-satellite service (MSS) and broadcasting-satellite service (BSS), hereafter referred to as “active space services”;

b) that, in many cases, the frequencies used by the radio astronomy service (RAS) are chosen to study natural phenomena producing radio emissions at frequencies fixed by the laws of nature, so shifting frequency to avoid or mitigate interference problems may not be possible;

c) that Report ITU-R SM.2091 provides a methodology for conducting, and a framework for documenting the results of, compatibility studies between active space service and the radio astronomy service band-pairs;

d) that Report ITU-R SM.2091 also provides the results of compatibility studies between the radio astronomy service and an active space service in certain adjacent and nearby bands;

e) that appropriate consultation between administrations has the potential to lead to the development of innovative solutions and to the rapid deployment of systems;

f) that, for technical or operational reasons, more stringent spurious emission limits than the general limits in Appendix 3 may be required to protect the RAS from active services in specific bands,

noting

a) that the additional burden of undertaking any technical examination should not be placed on the Radiocommunication Bureau;

b) that a consultation procedure, as contained in this Resolution, would not place an additional burden on the Bureau;

c) that Recommendation ITU-R M.1583 provides a methodology based on the equivalent power flux-density (epfd) concept for calculation of interference resulting from unwanted emissions from non-geostationary (non-GSO) satellite systems of the MSS or RNSS into radio astronomy stations;

d) that Recommendation ITU-R S.1586 provides a methodology based on the epfd concept for calculation of interference resulting from unwanted emissions from non-GSO systems of the FSS into radio astronomy stations;

e) that the methodology described in these Recommendations may also be used to study the case of non-GSO systems in the BSS;

f) that Recommendation ITU-R RA.1631 provides antenna patterns to be used for compatibility analyses between non-GSO systems and RAS stations, based on the epfd concept;

g) that Recommendation ITU-R RA.1513 provides acceptable levels of data loss to radio astronomy observations, stating in particular that the percentage of data loss caused by any system should be lower than 2%;

h) that some of the results documented in Report ITU-R SM.2091 may be used as threshold levels to initiate the consultation procedure;

i) that the results of successful consultation between concerned administrations would ensure that the interests of both the active and radio astronomy services are considered;

j) that measures taken by active space services to protect radio astronomy stations from interference may result in increased costs and/or reduced capabilities for those services;

k) that conversely, not taking such measures may result in additional operating costs and reduced operational effectiveness for the radio astronomy stations concerned;

l) that the implementation of additional interference mitigation measures at the radio astronomy station may increase operating costs and reduce observational effectiveness;

m) that conversely, not implementing such measures may impose upon the active space services an additional cost burden and reduction in service capability,

recognizing

a) that unwanted emissions produced by stations of the active space services may cause unacceptable interference to stations of the RAS;

b) that, although some unwanted emissions from transmitters on space stations can be controlled through careful design methods and appropriate testing procedures, other unwanted emissions, such as narrow-band spurious emissions, generated by uncontrollable and/or unpredictable physical mechanisms, may only be detected after the spacecraft is launched;

c) that there is an uncertainty in the pre-launch assessment of the levels of unwanted emissions;

d) that it is necessary to ensure an equitable sharing of burden for achieving compatibility between the active space services and the RAS;

e) that for those cases where difficulties are encountered in meeting the values in Annex 1, a consultation procedure could be used to resolve the difficulties,

resolves

1 that an administration takes all reasonable steps to ensure that any space station or satellite system being designed and constructed to operate in the bands in Annex 1 meets the values given therein at any radio astronomy station operating in the corresponding bands identified in this Annex;

2 that in the event that during construction and prior to launch it is determined that, after having considered all reasonable means, the unwanted emissions from the space station or satellite system cannot meet the values given in Annex 1, the administration that notified the space station or satellite system contacts, as soon as possible, the administration operating the radio astronomy station to confirm that resolves 1 has been fulfilled, and the concerned administrations enter into a consultation process in order to achieve a mutually acceptable solution;

3 that in the event, following the space station launch, an administration operating a radio astronomy station determines that, due to unexpected circumstances, a space station or satellite system does not meet the values for unwanted emissions given in Annex 1 at that radio astronomy station, it contacts the administration that notified the space station or satellite system so that the administration that notified the space station or satellite system confirms that resolves 1 has been fulfilled, and the concerned administrations enter into a consultation process in order to identify further steps with a view to achieving a mutually acceptable solution;

4 that the radio astronomy stations to be taken into account in applying resolves 1, 2 and 3 are those which are operating in the frequency band(s) identified in Annex 1 and which are notified before the date of reception of the advance publication information of the space station or satellite system to which this Resolution applies;

5 that the space stations or satellite systems to be considered in the application of resolves 1 to 4 above are those designed to operate in the space service frequency bands listed in the tables of Annex 1 for which advance publication information (API) is received by the Bureau following the entry into force of the Final Acts of the appropriate conference, as specified in these tables;

6 that the objective of the consultation process in resolves 1, 2 and 3 is to achieve a mutually acceptable solution, using as guidance Report ITU-R SM.2091 and any other ITU-R Recommendations deemed relevant by the concerned administrations;

7 that the Bureau shall make no examination or finding with respect to this Resolution under either Article 9 or 11,

invites administrations

1 to take all appropriate and practicable steps, from the design phase onward, to ensure that unwanted emissions are minimized from space stations that are planned to operate in one or more space service allocations, in order to avoid exceeding the threshold levels of unwanted emissions identified in Annex 1 at any radio astronomy station;

2 to take all practicable steps, from the design phase onward, to minimize the sensitivity of radio astronomy stations to interference and to take into account the need to implement interference mitigation measures.

ANNEX 1 TO RESOLUTION 739 (Rev.WRC-07)

Unwanted emission threshold levels

The unwanted emission threshold levels applicable to geostationary space stations are given in Table 1-1 in terms of power flux-density (pfd) in a reference bandwidth produced at a radio astronomy station.

In Table 1-1 the unwanted emission threshold levels given in the fourth, sixth and eighth columns (associated with the reference bandwidth contained in the adjacent columns) should be met by any geostationary space station operating in the bands indicated in the second column at the radio astronomy station operating in the band mentioned in the third column.

The unwanted emission threshold levels applicable to space stations of a non-geostationary system are given in Table 1-2 in terms of the equivalent power flux-density (epfd), produced at a radio astronomy station in a reference bandwidth by all the space stations in a non-geostationary satellite system that are visible to the radio astronomy station considered, not to be exceeded during a given percentage of time, over the whole sky.

In Table 1-2 the epfd value given in the fourth, sixth and eighth columns (associated with the reference bandwidths contained in the adjacent column) should be met by all the space stations of a non-geostationary satellite system operating in the bands indicated in the second column at the radio astronomy station operating in the band mentioned in the third column. The epfd value at a given radio astronomy station shall be evaluated by using the antenna pattern and the RAS maximum antenna gain given in Recommendation ITU-R RA.1631. Guidance on the calculation of epfd can be found in Recommendations ITU-R S.1586 and ITU-R M.1583. The elevation angles of the radio astronomy stations to be taken into account in the epfd calculation are those higher than the minimum elevation angle θmin of the radio telescope. In the absence of such information a value of 5° shall be taken. The percentage of time during which the epfd level shall not be exceeded is mentioned in Note (1) of Table 1-2.

Some sections of Report ITU-R SM.2091 indicate levels of unwanted emissions in radio astronomy bands that certain satellite systems, by design, do not exceed.

Sharing between the mobile-satellite service (Earth-to-space) and the fixed andmobile services in the band 1 668.4-1 675 MHz

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that WRC-03 made a global allocation to the mobile-satellite service (MSS) (Earth-to-space) in the band 1 668-1 675 MHz and a global allocation to the MSS (space-to-Earth) in the band 1 518-1 525 MHz;

b) that the band 1 668.4-1 675 MHz is also allocated to the fixed and mobile services;

c) that due to sharing conditions between MSS (space-to-Earth) and the aeronautical mobile service for telemetry in the band 1 518-1 525 MHz (see No. 5.348B), MSS operation in the United States of America is unlikely to be feasible;

d) that the above constraints on the MSS in the band 1 518-1 525 MHz therefore limit the possible use of the band 1 668-1 675 MHz by the MSS in the United States of America;

e) that the band 1 670-1 675 MHz is used in Canada and the United States of America for the fixed and mobile services;

f) that some administrations operate transportable radio-relay systems in the band 1 668.4-1 675 MHz which could operate as part of the fixed or mobile service allocations;

g) that sharing between the mobile service and the mobile-satellite service (Earth-to-space) in the band 1 668.4-1 675 MHz has been studied in Recommendation ITU-R M.1799,

resolves

that the use of the band 1 668.4-1 675 MHz by systems in the mobile service is limited to transportable radio-relay systems;

2 that administrations operating transportable radio-relay systems should take into account Recommendation ITU-R M.1799, which states that, to adequately protect MSS networks, the e.i.r.p. of transportable radio-relay stations should not exceed −27 dB(W/4 kHz) in the band 1 668.4-1 675 MHz in the direction of the geostationary orbit;

3 that from 1 January 2015 administrations operating such systems in the mobile service shall limit the e.i.r.p. spectral density radiated in the direction of the geostationary orbit by these systems to −27 dB(W/4 kHz) in the band 1 668.4-1 675 MHz;

4 that, in the band 1 670-1 675 MHz, stations in the MSS shall not claim protection from stations in the fixed and mobile services operating in Canada and the United States of America;

5 that resolves 1, 2 and 3 do not apply to stations in the fixed and mobile services operating in Canada and the United States of America.

e) that the compatibility of one AM(R)S system, to be used by aircraft operating on the airport surface, and the FSS has been demonstrated in the 5 091-5 150 MHz band;

f) that ITU-R studies have examined potential sharing among AMS applications and have shown that the aggregate interference from aeronautical security, aeronautical telemetry and AM(R)S should total no more than 3% ΔTs/Ts;

g) that the frequency band 117.975-137 MHz currently allocated to the AM(R)S is reaching saturation in certain areas of the world, and therefore that band would not be available to support additional surface applications at airports;

h) that this new allocation is intended to support the introduction of applications and concepts in air traffic management which are data intensive, and which will support data links that carry safety-critical aeronautical data,

recognizing

a) that in the frequency band 5 030-5 091 MHz precedence is to be given to the microwave landing system (MLS) in accordance with No. 5.444;

b) that ICAO publishes recognized international aeronautical standards for AM(R)S systems;

c) that Resolution 114 (Rev.WRC-03) applies to the sharing conditions between the FSS and ARNS in the 5 091-5 150 MHz band,

noting

a) that the number of FSS transmitting stations required may be limited;

b) that the use of the band 5 091-5 150 MHz by the AM(R)S needs to ensure protection of the current or planned use of this band by the FSS (Earth-to-space);

c) that ITU-R studies describe methods for ensuring compatibility between the AM(R)S and FSS operating in the band 5 091-5 150 MHz, and compatibility has been demonstrated for the AM(R)S system referred to in considering e),

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that the favourable propagation characteristics of the band 470-806/862 MHz are beneficial to provide cost-effective solutions for coverage, including large areas of low population density;

b) that the operation of broadcasting stations and base stations in the same geographical area may create incompatibility issues;

c) that, according to Resolution 646 (WRC-03), the bands 764-776 MHz and 794-806 MHz are currently used in some countries for Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR); and the bands 806-866 MHz (in Region 2) and 806-824 MHz and 851-869 MHz (in Region 3) are currently identified for PPDR;

d) that many communities are particularly underserved compared to urban centres;

e) that applications ancillary to broadcasting are sharing the band 470-862 MHz with the broadcasting service in all three Regions, and are expected to continue their operations in this band;

f) that it is necessary to adequately protect, inter alia, terrestrial television broadcasting and other systems in this band,

recognizing

a) that, in Article 5 of the Radio Regulations, the band 790-862 MHz, or parts of that band, is allocated, and is used on a primary basis for services other than broadcasting;

b) that the frequency band 470-806/862 MHz is allocated to the broadcasting service on a primary basis in all three Regions and used predominantly by this service, and that the GE06 Agreement applies in all Region 1 countries except Mongolia and one country in Region 3;

c) that the transition from analogue to digital television is expected to result in situations where the band 790-862 MHz will be used for both analogue and digital terrestrial transmission; and the demand for spectrum during the transition period may be even greater than the stand-alone usage of analogue broadcasting systems;

d) the switch-over to digital may result in spectrum opportunities for new applications;

e) the timing of the switch-over to digital is likely to vary from country to country;

f) that the use of spectrum for different services should take into account the need for sharing studies;

RESOLUTION 750 (WRC-07)

Compatibility between the Earth exploration-satelliteservice (passive) and relevant active services

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that primary allocations have been made to various space services such as the fixed-satellite service (Earth-to-space), the space operation service (Earth-to-space) and the inter-satellite service and/or to terrestrial services such as the fixed service, the mobile service and the radiolocation service, hereinafter referred to as “active services”, in bands adjacent or nearby to bands allocated to the Earth exploration-satellite service (EESS) (passive) subject to No. 5.340;

b) that unwanted emissions from active services have the potential to cause unacceptable interference to EESS (passive) sensors;

c) that, for technical or operational reasons, the general limits in Appendix 3 may be insufficient in protecting the EESS (passive) in specific bands;

d) that, in many cases, the frequencies used by EESS (passive) sensors are chosen to study natural phenomena producing radio emissions at frequencies fixed by the laws of nature, and therefore shifting frequency to avoid or mitigate interference problems is not possible;

e) that the band 1 400-1 427 MHz is used for measuring soil moisture, and also for measuring sea-surface salinity and vegetation biomass;

f) that long-term protection of the EESS in the bands 23.6-24 GHz, 31.3-31.5 GHz, 50.2-50.4 GHz and 52.6-54.25 GHz is vital to weather prediction and disaster management, and measurements at several frequencies must be made simultaneously in order to isolate and retrieve each individual contribution;

g) that, in many cases, the bands adjacent or nearby to passive service bands are used and will continue to be used for various active service applications;

h) that it is necessary to ensure equitable burden sharing for achieving compatibility between active and passive services operating in adjacent or nearby bands,

noting

a) that the compatibility studies between relevant active and passive services operating in adjacent and nearby bands are documented in Report ITU-R SM.2092;

b) that Recommendation ITU-R RS.1029 provides the interference criteria for satellite passive remote sensing,

noting further

that, for the purpose of this Resolution:

( point-to-point communication is defined as radiocommunication provided by a link, for example a radio-relay link, between two stations located at specified fixed points;

( point-to-multipoint communication is defined as radiocommunication provided by links between a single station located at a specified fixed point (also called “hub station”) and a number of stations located at specified fixed points (also called “customer stations”),

recognizing

that studies documented in Report ITU-R SM.2092 do not consider point-to-multipoint communication links in the fixed service in the bands 1 350-1 400 MHz and 1 427-1 452 MHz,

resolves

1 that unwanted emissions of stations brought into use in the bands and services listed in Table 1-1 below shall not exceed the corresponding limits in that table, subject to the specified conditions;

2 to urge administrations to take all reasonable steps to ensure that unwanted emissions of active service stations in the bands and services listed in Table 1-2 below do not exceed the recommended maximum levels contained in that table, noting that EESS (passive) sensors provide worldwide measurements that benefit all countries, even if these sensors are not operated by their country;

3 that the Radiocommunication Bureau shall not make any examination or finding with respect to compliance with this Resolution under either Article 9 or 11.

RESOLUTION 751 (WRC-07)

Use of the frequency band 10.6-10.68 GHz

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that the frequency band 10.6-10.7 GHz is allocated to the Earth exploration-satellite service (EESS) (passive) and to the space research service (passive) on a primary basis;

b) that the band 10.6-10.7 GHz is of primary interest for the measurement of rain, snow, sea state, ocean wind and soil moisture;

c) that this frequency band is used by passive sensors to study natural phenomena producing radio emissions at frequencies fixed by the laws of nature, and therefore shifting frequency to avoid or mitigate interference problems may not be possible;

d) that any limitation of the operation of passive sensors in the band 10.68-10.7 GHz covered by No. 5.340 would degrade the sensitivity of those sensors;

e) that the frequency band 10.6-10.68 GHz is also allocated to the mobile, except aeronautical mobile, and the fixed services on a primary basis;

f) that experience has shown that EESS (passive) sensors currently operating in the band 10.6-10.68 GHz are facing high interference levels from the emissions of systems of active services in some parts of the world;

g) that studies have concluded that appropriate sharing criteria applicable to both passive and active services would reduce this interference to a level that would permit passive sensors to operate successfully, while allowing continuing operation of active services in the same band,

noting

that, for the purpose of this Resolution:

– point-to-point communication is defined as radiocommunication provided by a link, for example a radio-relay link, between two stations located at specified fixed points;

– point-to-multipoint communication is defined as radiocommunication provided by links between a single station located at a specified fixed point (also called “hub station”) and a number of stations located at specified fixed points (also called “customer stations”);

– automatic transmit-power control (ATPC) is a technique in which the output power of a microwave transmitter is automatically varied to compensate for path propagation conditions; in normal propagation conditions, ATPC maintains the transmitter output power at a reduced level; ATPC is characterized by its range, which is defined as the difference between the maximum and minimum values of transmitted power, and has no impact on the design of the related link,

resolves

1 to urge administrations to take all reasonable steps to comply with the sharing criteria in Tables 1 to 4 contained in Annex 1 to this Resolution when bringing into use stations in the Earth exploration-satellite service (passive), the fixed service and the mobile, except aeronautical mobile, service, noting that EESS (passive) sensors provide worldwide measurements that benefit all countries, even if these sensors are not operated by their country;

c) that an aeronautical mobile station can cause unacceptable interference to receivers in the space research service whenever it is within line-of-sight of the receiver, as indicated in Recommendation ITU-R SA.1016;

d) that interference from the emissions of an aeronautical mobile station to a space research service earth station receiver may significantly exceed the permissible interference levels for extended periods of time, thus jeopardizing the success of a space mission,

recognizing

a) that the Table of Frequency Allocations already excludes the operation of aeronautical mobile stations in the bands 2.29-2.3 GHz, 8.4-8.5 GHz and 22.21-22.5 GHz where the mobile service is co-allocated on a primary basis with the space research service (space-to-Earth), and in the 31.5-31.8 GHz band where the mobile service is allocated on a secondary basis;

b) that the Table of Frequency Allocations also already excludes the operation of aeronautical mobile stations in many bands where the mobile service is co-allocated on a primary basis with the fixed service, such as in the band 11.7-12.5 GHz and the fixed service and the fixed-satellite service (space-to-Earth), such as 7 300-7 750 MHz;

c) that RR No. 5.547 indicates that the 37-38 GHz band is available for high-density applications in the fixed service;

d) that use of the 37-38 GHz band is required to support the increased data requirements of planned manned and scientific missions,

Principles for establishing agendas for worldradiocommunication conferences

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that, in accordance with No. 118 of the ITU Convention, the general scope of the agendas for world radiocommunication conferences (WRCs) should be established four to six years in advance;

b) Article 13 of the ITU Constitution relating to the competence and scheduling of WRCs and Article 7 of the Convention relating to their agendas;

c) that No. 92 of the Constitution and Nos. 488 and 489 of the Convention require conferences to be fiscally responsible;

d) that in Resolution 71 (Rev. Marrakesh, 2002), concerning the strategic plan of the Union, the Plenipotentiary Conference noted the increasingly complex and lengthy agendas for world radiocommunication conferences;

e) that Resolution 80 (Rev. Marrakesh, 2002) of the Plenipotentiary Conference and Resolution 72 (Rev.WRC-07) recognize the positive contribution of regional and informal groups and the need for improved efficiency and fiscal prudence;

f) the relevant Resolutions of previous WRCs,

noting

a) that the number of issues addressed in agendas for WRCs has been growing, and that some issues could not be resolved adequately in the time allotted to the Conference, including conference preparations;

b) that some agenda items may have a greater impact on the future of radiocommunications than others;

c) that the human and financial resources of ITU are limited;

d) that there is a need to limit the agenda of conferences, taking account of the needs of developing countries, in a manner that allows the major issues to be dealt with equitably and efficiently,

resolves

that the principles in Annex 1 should be used when developing future WRC agendas,

resolves to invite administrations

1 to use the template in Annex 2 in proposing agenda items for WRCs;

2 to participate in regional activities for the preparation of future WRC agendas.

ANNEX 1 TO RESOLUTION 804 (WRC-07)

Principles for establishing agendas for WRCs

A conference agenda shall include:

1) items assigned to it by the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference;

2) items on which the Director of the Radiocommunication Bureau has been requested to report;

3) items concerning instructions to the Radio Regulations Board and the Radiocommunication Bureau regarding their activities, and concerning the review of those activities.

In general, a conference may include on a future conference agenda an item proposed by a group of administrations or an administration, if all the following conditions are met:

1) it addresses issues of a worldwide or regional character;

2) it is expected that changes in the Radio Regulations, including WRC Resolutions and Recommendations, may be necessary;

3) it is expected that required studies can be completed (e.g. that appropriate ITU-R Recommendations will be approved) prior to that conference;

4) resources associated with the subject are kept within a range which is manageable for Member States and Sector Members, the Radiocommunication Bureau and ITU-R Study Groups, Conference Preparatory Meeting (CPM) and the Special Committee.

To the extent possible, agenda items arising from previous conferences, normally reflected in Resolutions, and which have been considered by two successive conferences, should not be considered, unless justified.

In developing the conference agenda, efforts should be made to:

a) encourage regional and interregional coordination on the subjects to be considered in the preparatory process for the WRC, in accordance with Resolution 72 (Rev.WRC-07) and Resolution 80 (Rev. Marrakesh, 2002) of the Plenipotentiary Conference;

b) include, to the extent possible, agenda items that are prepared within regional groups, taking into account the equal right of individual administrations to submit proposals for agenda items;

c) ensure that proposals are submitted with an indication of priority;

d) include in proposals an assessment of their financial and other resource implications (with the assistance of the Radiocommunication Bureau) to ensure that they are within the agreed budgetary limits for ITU-R;

e) ensure that the objectives and scope of proposed agenda items are complete and unambiguous;

f) take into account the status of the ITU-R studies related to the potential agenda items before considering them as possible candidates for future agendas;

g) distinguish between items intended to result in changes to the Radio Regulations and those dealing solely with the progress of studies.

h) that the lack of use to date of the band 275-3 000 GHz by the various active services indicates a general consideration of frequency allocations above 275 GHz may be premature,

recognizing

a) that propagation characteristics at frequencies above 275 GHz, such as atmospheric absorption and scattering, have a significant impact on the performance of both active and passive systems and need to be studied;

b) that it is necessary to investigate further the potential uses of the bands between 275 and 3 000 GHz by suitable applications,

noting

b) that Radiocommunication Bureau Circular Letter CR/137 identified additional information for the Bureau to record characteristics of active and passive sensors for Earth exploration-satellite service and space research service satellites, in frequency bands below 275 GHz,

further noting

a) that a process and format similar to that provided in noting b) could be used to record systems operating in the 275 to 3 000 GHz band;

b) that recording active and passive systems operating in the 275 to 3 000 GHz band will provide information until the date when, and if, it is determined that changes to the Radio Regulations are needed,

resolves

1 to review No. 5.565 of the Radio Regulations, excluding frequency allocations, in order to update the spectrum use between 275 GHz and 3 000 GHz by the passive services at WRC-11, taking into account the result of the ITU-R studies;

RESOLUTION 951 (Rev.WRC-07)

Enhancing the international spectrumregulatory framework

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that radio spectrum is a finite resource and there is a continued increase and evolution in demand and multiplicity of existing and future applications for radiocommunications;

b) that the current technological environment for some applications is substantively different from the one which prevailed when the current allocation principles and definitions were established;

c) that past WRCs were able to respond to the developments mentioned under considering a) and b) in certain cases;

d) that there is a keen interest in the rational, efficient and economic use of spectrum;

e) that allocations to radiocommunication services should aim to reach the best outcome in terms of spectrum efficiency;

f) that applications are emerging in which elements of different radiocommunication services (as defined in the Radio Regulations) are combined;

g) that there is a convergence of radio technologies, inasmuch as the same radio technology can be used in systems that operate in different radiocommunication services or with different allocation status (primary or secondary), that might have an impact on the allocation scenario;

h) that similar data rates and quality of service attributes are available with different radiocommunication systems operating in different radiocommunication services;

i) that the use of modern underlying communication architectures and protocols, such as those used in packet radio systems, enables the concurrent provision of different applications from the same platform operating in the same frequency bands;

j) that evolving and emerging radiocommunication technologies may enable sharing possibilities and may lead to more frequency-agile and interference-tolerant equipment and consequently to more flexible use of spectrum;

k) that these evolving and emerging technologies may not require band segmentation within the traditional spectrum allocation framework;

l) that the regulatory procedures should be continually assessed in order to meet the demands of administrations,

recognizing

a) that the rights of administrations to deploy, operate and protect services should be the guiding principle;

b) that the studies in response to Resolution 951 (WRC-03) have shown that any change intended to improve the flexibility of administrations in accommodating converging services has to rely on a combination of service definitions, allocations and procedures,

noting

a) that one of the purposes of the Radio Regulations is the effective management and use of spectrum;

b) that World Radiocommunication Conferences shall normally be convened every three to four years for possible amending of the Radio Regulations;

c) that the studies initiated under Resolution 951 (WRC-03) have shown a need for additional studies,

resolves

that, as a matter of urgency, taking into account Annexes 1 and 2, studies are to be continued by ITU-R, in order to develop concepts and procedures for enhancing the Radio Regulations to meet the demands of current, emerging and future radio applications, while taking into account existing services and usage;

2 that the studies mentioned in resolves 1 shall be limited to general allocation or procedural issues relating to general spectrum management solutions, such as those already developed in Annex 1, in line with the process contained in Annex 2;

3 to invite WRC-11 to take into consideration the results of these studies, including sharing and their impact on allocations in the concerned frequency bands, and take appropriate action in accordance with Annex 2,

invites ITU-R

to conduct the necessary studies in time for consideration by WRC-11 and in accordance with this Resolution,

invites administrations

to participate actively in the studies by submitting contributions to ITU-R.

ANNEX 1 TO RESOLUTION 951 (Rev.WRC-07)

Options for enhancing the international spectrum regulatory framework*

The following four possible options have been so far identified in order to develop concepts and procedures for enhancing the Radio Regulations; a combination of these options as well as other options may also be used.

Option 1 is keeping the current practice as it is.

Option 2 is reviewing and possibly revising the current service definitions or adding a new service to the list of service definitions, which would encompass several of the existing ones.

Option 3 is the introduction of a new provision in the Radio Regulations enabling substitution1 between assignments of specific services.

Option 4 is the introduction of composite services in the Table of Frequency Allocations.

NOTE – For Options 2, 3 and 4, improved forms of notices associated with existing Appendix 4, and/or relevant adjustments to this Appendix, should be considered.

Under this option, it is considered that there is sufficient flexibility within the present Radio Regulations and the WRC process to meet any current or likely future requirements within the time-frame typically set forth for WRCs.

Under this option, national regulation may be appropriate to provide relevant solutions to the changing environment.

Although new applications may be introduced in a shorter time-frame, this would be without protection against harmful interference, which may not be practical for the vast majority of emerging wireless applications, including IMT, scientific, public safety, radiolocation, radionavigation, broadcast and fixed/mobile/broadcast satellite systems.

The current service definitions in Article 1 of the Radio Regulations appear to have generally enabled the Radio Regulations to be adapted dynamically to latest technology evolution such as IMT, HAPS, RLANs, digital TV, public protection and disaster relief (PPDR) and scientific community interests.

It was noted that, in spite of different definitions for the fixed and mobile (except aeronautical and maritime) services, in most frequency bands where one of the two services is allocated, the other one is also allocated. This indicates that convergence is already achieved in the ITU Table of Frequency Allocations, except in some frequency bands, where allocations to both services may be considered on a band-by-band basis by future WRCs, as required.

Under this approach, the current service definitions in Article 1 of the Radio Regulations would be reviewed in order to ensure that they adequately and clearly cover actual use while providing flexibility for emerging technologies. After an extensive consultation within the ITU-R Study Groups, this review may encompass the fixed and mobile (except aeronautical and maritime mobile) services and possibly other services, if considered appropriate2. It may lead to reviewing the current definitions for these services and modifying them as necessary.

Possible changes to the service definitions would need to be addressed from the point of view of their regulatory implications in the assignment and use of frequencies, in particular in the ITU coordination, notification and recording processes, impact on assignments made under the current definitions, and impact on other services.

Under this approach, a new provision would be introduced in the Radio Regulations in order to enable substitution between assignments of specific services. For example, in the context of fixed and mobile (except maritime and aeronautical mobile) services, substitution could be applied in the same way as it is applied by Nos. 5.485 or 5.492 in the context of the fixed-satellite and broadcasting-satellite services.

Using the example of fixed and mobile services, this could reflect the current convergence between the services, address the current ambiguities between the definitions of these services, facilitate the timely implementation of new applications, provide adequate regulatory protection for such applications, and protect the rights of other administrations against interference caused by them.

A new provision enabling substitution would need to be addressed from the point of view of its regulatory implications in the assignment and use of frequencies, in particular in the ITU coordination, notification and recording processes, impact on assignments made under the current definitions, and impact on other services.

Under this approach, which could reflect the convergence between some radiocommunication services in a specific frequency band, the Table of Frequency Allocations (Article 5 of the RR) could be modified by replacing the current separate allocations to some radiocommunication services by a joint allocation to these services (e.g. a specific frequency band allocated to the “fixed service” and to the “land mobile service” could be modified to a composite allocation of “fixed and land mobile service”). The above approach would only be applicable if all concerned services referred to in the allocation to the composite services have equal regulatory status.

This approach would provide administrations with increased flexibility. In the example above, administrations could opt for either the fixed service alone, for the land mobile service alone, for separate applications in both services in an independent manner, or for a composite application which would include both services. This option would not require any revision to the current definitions of the concerned radiocommunication services (i.e. neither to the fixed nor to the land mobile service).

To enable the notification and recording of frequency assignments in such a composite service, a new class of station could be introduced named “Station in the fixed and land mobile service” (with a separate symbol than those used for the fixed and land mobile service), with appropriate forms of notice, or other adequate notification mechanisms.

ANNEX 2 TO RESOLUTION  951 (Rev.WRC-07)

GUIDELINES FOR IMPLEMENTING THIS RESOLUTION

These guidelines contain three steps:

1 Step 1: Evaluate various options including those in Annex 1 as to their usefulness regarding the enhancement of spectrum management solutions to meet the objectives of this Resolution.

2 Step 2: Develop concepts and procedures based on the options evaluated in Step 1 including sharing studies on a band-by-band basis.

3 Step 3: Prepare, based on Step 2, technical and regulatory solutions for consideration and appropriate action at WRC-11.

Protection of radiocommunication services fromemissions by short-range radio devices

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that short-range radio devices (SRDs) are radio transmitters or receivers, or both, and hence are not considered as industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) applications under No. 1.15;

b) that SRDs, including devices using ultra-wideband (UWB) technologies, radio-frequency identification devices (RFIDs), and other similar devices, generate and use radio frequencies locally;

c) that SRDs cannot claim protection from interference from radio services and therefore have been developed in priority in ISM frequency bands;

d) that there is an increasing amount of SRDs proliferating across various frequencies throughout the spectrum, such as devices using UWB technologies or RFIDs, etc.;

e) that in some cases considerable energy may be radiated by RFIDs;

f) that some radio services, especially those using low field strengths, may suffer harmful interference from SRDs, in particular RFIDs, a risk which is unacceptable, particularly in the case of radionavigation or other safety services,

recognizing

a) the work carried out by ITU-R resulting in relevant ITU-R Recommendations (see ITU-R SM.1538, ITU-R SM.1754, ITU-R SM.1755, ITU-R SM.1756, ITU-R SM.1757);

b) the work carried out by ITU-T on RFID;

c) that SRDs, in particular RFIDs, hold promise for an array of new applications that may provide benefits for users;

d) that the characteristics of RFIDs, including the power of the transmitter, are standardized in the framework of the International Standardization Organization (ISO),

recognizing further

Resolution ITU-R 54 of the Radiocommunication Assembly (Geneva, 2007), which resolves that ITU-R should study the capabilities of SRDs while ensuring protection of radiocommunication services,

resolves

that, to ensure that radiocommunication services are adequately protected, further studies are required on the emissions from SRDs, inside and outside the frequency bands designated in the Radio Regulations for ISM applications,

invites ITU-R

RESOLUTION  954 (WRC-07)

Harmonization of spectrum for use by terrestrialelectronic news gathering1 systems

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that the use of terrestrial portable radio equipment by services ancillary to broadcasting, commonly described as electronic news gathering (ENG), operating in the bands allocated to the broadcasting, fixed and mobile services has become an important element in the comprehensive coverage of a wide range of internationally noteworthy events, including natural disasters;

b)that WRC-03 initiated studies concerned with spectrum usage and operational characteristics of portable and nomadic links for terrestrial ENG systems operation on a global basis, in accordance with Recommendation 723 (WRC-03);

c) that modularization and miniaturization of terrestrial ENG systems has increased the portability for these systems and has thus increased the trend towards cross-border operation of ENG equipment;

d) that the technical characteristics for television outside broadcast, ENG and electronic field production systems in the fixed and mobile services for use in sharing studies have been established in ITU-R Recommendations,

noting

a) that studies undertaken by ITU-R indicate that national spectrum management could benefit from globally harmonized band planning for ENG systems;

b) that ENG-related studies in ITU-R are based on data for current and anticipated ENG spectrum requirements collected from many administrations in all regions;

c) that some of the frequency bands currently used for ENG have a number of technical and operational attributes making them suitable for continued long-term use for ENG;

d) that lower frequency spectrum bands tend to provide better propagation characteristics over obstructed paths, thereby increasing the reliability of ENG links operating in these bands,

recognizing

a) that broadcasters now embrace advanced digital technologies that open new opportunities for both fixed and mobile ENG operations, and that these developments have spectrum related implications;

b) that the dynamic nature of the use of ENG is driven by scheduled, unscheduled and unpredictable events such as breaking news, emergencies and disasters;

c) that news gathering and electronic production typically takes place in an environment where several television broadcasters/organizations/networks attempt to cover the same event, creating a demand for multiple ENG links and increased demand for access to spectrum in suitable frequency bands;

d) that access to a globally harmonized spectrum is highly desirable to facilitate the rapid and less restricted deployment and operation of ENG systems from one country to another,

resolves

1 that, based on studies undertaken by ITU-R, WRC-11 should address the feasibility of achieving a satisfactory degree of worldwide/regional harmonization of spectrum for ENG use in terms of the frequency bands and tuning ranges;

2 that methods should be identified for the possible harmonization of frequency bands and tuning ranges for ENG usage,

invites ITU-R

1 to carry out studies of ENG regarding possible solutions for global/regional harmonization in frequency bands and tuning ranges, taking into account:

– available technologies to maximize efficient and flexible use of frequency;

– system characteristics and operational practices which facilitate the implementation of these solutions;

2 to include in the studies referred to above sharing and compatibility issues with services already having allocations in frequency bands and tuning ranges which have potential for ENG use;

3 to propose operational measures to facilitate operation of ENG equipment consistent with global circulation of radiocommunication equipment, taking into account Recommendation ITU-R M.1637;

4 to report the results of those studies to the World Radiocommunication Conference 2011,

invites administrations

considering

a) that frequencies above 3 000 GHz are already used for various optical applications from telecommunication links to satellite remote sensing;

b) that optical links are currently under consideration by several ITU-R Study Groups;

c) that Recommendations ITU-R P.1621, P.1622, S.1590, RA.1630; SA.1742, SA.1805, and RS.1744 contain information pertaining to free-space optical links and remote sensing;

d) that the ITU-R is in the process of preparing reports regarding the possibility and relevance of including in the Radio Regulations frequency bands above 3 000 GHz as well as fixed service applications using such frequency bands,

recognizing

a) that Resolution 118 (Marrakesh, 2002) of the Plenipotentiary Conference instructs the Director of the BR to report to world radiocommunication conferences on the progress of ITU-R studies concerning the use of frequencies above 3 000 GHz;

b) that the ITU-R has identified technical aspects regarding the use of optical free-space telecommunications as an item requiring urgent study by the ITU-R Study Groups,

Regulatory measures and their relevance to enable the introductionof software-defined radio and cognitive radio systems

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that cognitive radio and self-configuring networks are expected to provide additional flexibility and improved efficiency to the overall spectrum use;

b) that ITU-R is already studying such advanced radio technologies, their functionalities, the key technical characteristics, requirements, performance and benefits (Question ITU-R 241/8);

c) that studies have shown that software defined radio using cognitive control mechanisms is an approach for achieving better spectrum utilization, dynamic spectrum management, and flexible spectrum use (Report ITU-R M.2064);

d) that considerable research and development is being carried out on cognitive radio systems and related network configurations such as self-configuring networks;

e) that cognitive radio systems may cover a number of radio access techniques (RATs);

f) that cognitive radio systems include self-configuring networks of different network topologies that will be able to set their spectrum usage based on the locally available spectrum;

g) that without any information about the location and characteristics of other RATs within the covered frequency range reachable from the mobile terminal, it will be necessary to scan the whole tuning range in order to discover the local spectrum usage, which will result in a huge power and time consumption;

h) that without additional means, it may not be possible to discover receive-only usage;

i) that some studies indicate usefulness to have means to assist in the determination of the local spectrum usage, such as wireless or wired access to a database or to other networks;

j) that some studies indicate a possible need for a worldwide harmonized cognitive supporting pilot channel with a bandwidth less than 50 kHz, whilst other studies indicate that the availability of a database could support access and connectivity, and therefore support the use of these systems,

resolves to invite ITU-R

1 to study whether there is a need for regulatory measures related to the application of cognitive radio system technologies;

2 to study whether there is a need for regulatory measures related to the application of software-defined radio,

resolves further

that WRC-11 consider the results of these studies and take the appropriate actions.

RECOMMENDATION 608 (Rev.WRC-07)

Guidelines for consultation meetings established inResolution 609 (Rev.WRC-07)

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that in accordance with the Radio Regulations (RR), the band 960-1 215 MHz is allocated on a primary basis to the aeronautical radionavigation service (ARNS) in all the ITU Regions;

b) that WRC-2000 introduced a co-primary allocation for the radionavigation-satellite service (RNSS) in the frequency band 1 164-1 215 MHz (subject to the conditions specified under No. 5.328A), with a provisional limit on the aggregate power flux-density (pfd) produced by all the space stations within all radionavigation-satellite systems at the Earth’s surface of −115 dB(W/m2) in any 1 MHz band for all angles of arrival;

c) that WRC-03 revised this provisional limit and decided that the level of −121.5 dB(W/m2) in any 1 MHz for the aggregate equivalent pfd (epfd) applying for all the space stations within all RNSS systems, taking into account the reference worst-case ARNS system antenna characteristics described in Annex 2 of Recommendation ITU-R M.1642-2, is adequate to ensure the protection of the ARNS in the band 1 164-1 215 MHz;

d) that WRC-03 decided that to achieve the objectives in resolves 1 and 2 of Resolution 609 (Rev.WRC-07), administrations operating or planning to operate RNSS systems will need to agree cooperatively through consultation meetings to achieve the level of protection for ARNS systems, and shall establish mechanisms to ensure that all potential RNSS system operators are given full visibility of the process but that only real systems are taken into account in the calculation of the aggregate epfd,

recommends

1 that in the implementation of resolves 5 of Resolution 609 (Rev.WRC-07), in the frequency band 1 164-1 215 MHz, the maximum pfd produced at the surface of the Earth by emissions from a space station in the RNSS, for all angles of arrival, should not exceed −129 dB(W/m2) in any 1 MHz band under free space propagation conditions;

RECOMMENDATION 724 (WRC-07)

Use by civil aviation of frequency allocations on a primary basisto the fixed-satellite service

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007),

considering

a) that remote and rural areas often still lack a terrestrial communication infrastructure that meets the evolving requirements of modern civil aviation;

b) that the cost of providing and maintaining such an infrastructure could be expensive, particularly in remote regions;

c) that satellite communication systems operating in the fixed-satellite service (FSS) may be the only medium to satisfy the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) communication, navigation, surveillance and air traffic management (CNS/ATM) systems, where an adequate terrestrial communication infrastructure is not available;

d) that the use of VSAT systems, operating in the FSS and being deployed on a large scale in aeronautical communications, has the potential to significantly enhance communications between air traffic control centres as well as with remote aeronautical stations;

e) that establishing and utilizing satellite communication systems for civil aviation would also bring benefits for developing countries and countries with remote and rural areas by enabling the use of VSAT systems for non-aeronautical communications;

f) that in the cases identified in considering e) it is necessary to draw attention to the importance of aeronautical communications as opposed to non-aeronautical communications,

noting

a) that the FSS is not a safety service;

b) that Resolution 20 (Rev.WRC-03) resolves to instruct the Secretary-General “to encourage ICAO to continue its assistance to developing countries which are endeavouring to improve their aeronautical telecommunications …”,

recommends

1 that administrations, in particular in developing countries and in countries with remote and rural areas, recognize the importance of VSAT operations to the modernization of civil aviation telecommunications systems and encourage the implementation of VSAT systems that could support both aeronautical and other communication requirements;

2 that administrations in developing countries be encouraged, to the maximum extent possible and as necessary, to expedite the authorization process to enable aeronautical communications using VSAT technology;

3 that arrangements should be made to provide for urgent service restoration or alternative routing in case of a disruption of a VSAT link associated with the aeronautical communications;

4 that administrations implementing VSAT systems in accordance with recommends 1 to 3 should do so in satellite networks operating in frequency bands with a primary allocation to the satellite services;

5 to invite ICAO, noting Resolution 20 (Rev.WRC-03), to continue its assistance to developing countries to improve their aeronautical telecommunications, including interoperability of VSAT networks, and provide guidance to developing countries on how they could best use VSAT technology for this purpose,
