Citel PCC.II to meet in Ottawa next week, in last instance of discussion prior to WRC-19

The 34th Meeting of Permanent Consultative Committee II (PCC.II) - Radiocommunications of the Inter-American Telecommunications Commission (Citel) will take place from August 12 to 16. So far, as confirmed to Convergencialatina Oscar León, Executive Secretary of the agency, there are 35 preliminary proposals from the Americas for the World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-19), to be held between October and November in Egypt. In eight of them there is already a final agreement and the proposals were submitted to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU).

On the issues still pending consensus, there are four that stand out for their high level of discussion: 1.13, on bands identified for IMT; 1.5, on the operation of earth stations in motion (ETEM); 1.14, on the frequency expansion for HAPS (high altitude pseudo-satellites); and 7, on regulatory issues for satellites, in particular due to the changes that will involve the launching of low earth orbit (LEO) huge constellations.
