There are a number of papers relating to the Amateur Satellite Service that
have been submitted by the RSGB to the IARU Region 1 Interim Conference which
will be held in Vienna from February 24 to 25th 2007.

The papers for the conference have been posted to

The RSGB papers that will be of interest to the Amateur Satellite community

B01 - Increased Amateur Satellite Service 2 Metre Usage - RSGB 
      Proposes the segment 144.315-144.365 MHz for CW/SSB Linear Transponder 
B02 - Bands above 275 GHz - RSGB 
      All proposed bands to be for Amateur Satellite Service as well.
B13 - Allocations at 3400 MHz - RSGB 
      Proposes Region 1 Amateur and Amateur Satellite allocation.
B14 - Microwave Spectrum Threats - RSGB 
      Details threats to our allocations
B15 - 23cms Bandplan - RSGB
      1240-1250 MHz
B16 - Amateur Satellite Service Spectrum
      Additional VHF and Microwave Satellite allocations

There is also a paper submitted by EDR - B22 - which proposes 144.630-144.660
MHz for Amateur Satellite downlinks. My personal view is that this in
unfeasable as it conflicts with bandplans in the rest of the world. I consider
the RSGB paper B01 144.315-144.365 MHz to be the better choice.
