IARU has been successfull in obtaining new global Amateur Service allocations such as 135 kHz and 7.1-7.2 kHz, however, the Amateur Satellite Service seems to have been forgotten. 7.0-7.1 is okay for sats but 7.1-7.2 isn't, Why? is the question that has to be asked.
Currently IARU is attempting to get an Amateur Service allocation at 500kHz - should they also be getting that band for the Amateur Satellite Service as well ?
Given the significant input of the ARRL into IARU perhaps amsat-bb members in NA could remind ARRL that, where possible, new Amateur allocations should be obtained for BOTH the Amateur and Amateur Satellite Services not just the Amateur Service.
