'Click the Pig'
Radio Conference, held in Geneva every four years or so, hammers out
agreement on worldwide RF spectrum use for all countries and all
services. Ham Radio has a little role to play, and interests to
protect. Maybe not so little, at least to us. The ARRL's Brennan Price
N4QX gives Ham
Radio Now's Gary Pearce
KN4AQ a detailed look behind the scenes of this major conference. This
time around, Ham Radio came out pretty well: a new (albiet narrow,
secondary) allocation at the bottom of MF - 472-479 kHz. And we fended
off some potential interference from an oceanographic radar service.
All in this edition of Ham
And one correction: There's a picture identified as Brennan's colleague, Jon Siverling WB3ERA, in the middle of the program. But that's not Jon — it's a 'younger' Brennan Price, at W1AW. Sorry, Jon! You can see Jon's picture in his listing on QRZ.com.
