Outcome for 5 MHz at WRC-15 Remains in Limbo

With the deadline to submit proposals to World Radiocommunication Conference 2015 (WRC-15) now less than 2 months away, it’s still unclear how at least one agenda item of importance to the Amateur Radio community will fare. 


That is agenda item 1.4, which calls on the delegates to consider a secondary Amateur Radio allocation at 5 MHz (60 meters). 

In the US and in most other countries that have privileges there, ham radio has a set of fixed channels at 5 MHz — not necessarily the same from one country to the next, although most are common.
