IARU argues for protection from WPT spurious emissions

IARU was again represented at the meeting last week in Ankara, Turkey, where committee SE24 (Short Range Devices) met to undertake further work on the Work Item concerning Wireless Power Transmission. SE24 is considering both WPT for electric vehicles and also generic WPT applications.

IARU has made extensive input on the potential impact on radio communications from spurious emissions from WPT devices and much of this is captured in CEPT ECC Report 289, published earlier this year ( https://www.ecodocdb.dk/document/8214 ). At the Ankara meeting further input was made by IARU and other interested parties and there will be a meeting of SE24 dedicated to WPT issues in early July.

Also at Ankara IARU attended the SRD Maintenance Group meeting ( SRD/MG ) where it was noted that further work was needed in SE24 before spurious emission limits for WPT devices could be addressed in a regulatory sense.

IARU was represented in Ankara by Don Beattie, Region 1 President, who is leading the IARU work on WPT.

World Amateur Radio Day

Every April 18th, radio amateurs worldwide take to the airwaves in celebration of World Amateur Radio Day. It was on this day in 1925 that the International Amateur Radio Union was formed in Paris.

Amateur Radio experimenters were the first to discover that the short wave spectrum — far from being a wasteland — could support worldwide propagation. In the rush to use these shorter wavelengths, Amateur Radio was “in grave danger of being pushed aside,” the IARU’s history has noted. Amateur Radio pioneers met in Paris in 1925 and created the IARU to support Amateur Radio worldwide.

Today, Amateur Radio is more popular than ever, with more than 3,000,000 licensed operators!

April 18 is the day for all of Amateur Radio to celebrate and tell the world about the science; this is an opportunity for amateurs to show there expertise in digital and wireless communications, to those in the community who have “wireless communication” interests, but haven’t considered the association with Amateur Radio.

World Amateur Radio Day is the day when IARU Member-Societies can show our capabilities to the public and enjoy global friendship with other Amateurs worldwide.

How the day is promoted is a matter for the individual member society and or Region.

Groups should promote their WARD activity on social media by using the hash tag #WorldAmateurRadioDay on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

We hope you will join in the fun and education that is World Amateur Radio Day!
