In his most recent tweet this morning from Geneva, Bryan wrote:
What issues are Amateurs following here? AI 1.1 seeks a primary allocation to the Amateur Service in 50 to 54 MHz for ITU Region 1 (Europe, Middle East and Africa) just like we have in Regions 2 & 3. More later. #RAC@ITU
Bryan will also be including a report in the next issue of The Canadian Amateur magazine at the conclusion of the meetings.
