Eppur si muove: 50-54 MHz still is the EURAO's goal
The Agenda Item 1.1 for the next World Radio Conference 2019 (WRC-19) is about: "to consider an allocation of the frequency
band 50-54 MHz to the amateur service in Region 1, in accordance with Resolution 658 (WRC- 15)".
The idea is to synchronize the 6 meters band segment in Region 1 with the concession already enjoyed in Regions 2 and 3, which also have it
even on a primary basis.
This is also the objective of EURAO.
But, just in case you had seen somewhere something like "the option ... is preferred by EURAO", let's make crystal clear that
the only official position of EURAO is that published by EURAO itself. On this topic and any other else.
