EURAO at Helsinki CEPT meeting

Helsinki As you remember, last year EURAO signed a LoU with CEPT/ECC in order to cooperate in all Amateur Radio issues. This year, EURAO has been kindly invited to participate in the 85th meeting of its Working Group Frequency Management (WG FM), held on 23-27 May, 2016, in Helsinki, Finland.

In this meeting, EURAO had the great opportunity to present itself to all other event attendees, national administrations and observers, like Wi-Fi Alliance, EBU (Eurovision) or NATO, just to name a few.

CEPT was established in 1959 and nowadays has 48 country members from Central and Eastern Europe.

CEPT structure comprises three committees (ECC, CERP and Com-ITU) and a permanent office in Copenhagen: the European Communications Office (ECO).

Within the ECC there are several working groups (WG). Frequency Management (FM) is one of them, which in turn has other subgroups, like the Radio Amateur Forum Group (RA FG), which most interest us.

On the page behind you will find a list of CEPT recommendations regarding Amateur Radio.

One of the advantages of these recommendations is that other countries than members can join them. For example, CEPT Radio Amateur Licence is adopted also by: Australia, Canada, Israel, overseas countries and territories of the Netherlands, New Zealand, Peru, South Africa and USA. Negotiation with others is underway.

So, let's keep working together for radio amateurs.
