WRC-23 to be Held in Dubai

The International Telecommunication Union has announced that the 2023 World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-23) will be held from November 20 through December 15 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. WRCs are held every three to four years, at which time delegates from around the world review and, as needed, revise the ITU Radio Regulations, which provide an international framework for regulation of the RF spectrum and the orbits of communications satellites. The Radio Regulations include the basic structure of the Amateur Radio Service, including frequency allocations and license requirements. The ARRL and International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) are always involved in pre-conference deliberations and send observers to the conferences.
