A Basic Program for the 1963 Extraordinary Administrative Radio Conference on Space Communications

  • Andrew G. Haley
Conference paper

Abstract

Allocations for Space and Earth/Space radio services were included in the Radio Regulations annexed to the International Telecommunication Convention, signed in Geneva in 1959. The inadequacy of the allocations for future expanded uses was frankly admitted by the representatives of many of the signatory nations. All nations tentatively agreed at the Geneva Conference to convene an Extraordinary Administrative Radio Conference in 1963 to provide adequate radio spectrum segments for all categories of space (cosmic) communications and services. The Conference will be convened if sufficient data as to needs for and the manner of use of additional frequencies are delivered to the Administrative Council of the International Telecommunication Union no later than May of 1962.
