ITU Marks 100 Years of Radio Regulations (10/18)
Wednesday, October 18, 2006 | Comments
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is marking the centenary of the signing of international radio regulations at the 1906 Berlin Convention Oct. 30 in Geneva. The 1906 convention aimed to make two-way coast-to-ship radio communication free from harmful interference. These first regulations laid down rules for spectrum use for the operation of stations to reduce radio interference and establish technical standards for radio equipment. These regulations, which have since been expanded and revised by numerous radio conferences, are now known as the ITU Radio Regulations. Radio Regulations is a binding international treaty applying to frequencies ranging from 9 kHz to 400 GHz, and incorporating more than 1,000 pages. The regulations describe how the spectrum may be used and shared by more than 40 services around the globe representing around 1.26 million frequency assignments for terrestrial stations, 390,000 frequency assignments related to around 380 GSO orbital positions, and around 250 non-GSO satellite systems, along with another 50,000 assignments related to 3,700 satellite earth stations.
