Global Regulations: Efficient Use of Satellite Slots

July 2009

Via Satellite

The Radiocommunication Bureau (BR) of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU)

apparently is following a new “get tough” approach with member states that do not follow the rules on putting communications satellites into use on time. The BR issued a letter May 1, to all member states (Circular Letter CR 301) respectfully urging them to review their use of satellite networks recorded in the ITU’s Master International Frequency Register (MIFR). Satellites that
remain in the MIFR but not in operation can block the ability of other countries to coordinate and register their own satellites, and the BR wants the fictitious facilities cleared out of the records.
