Hi Trevor,

Thanks for the links...the Administrative Council Minutes have some 
particularly interesting items for us. It is good to see that a 50MHz 
worldwide satellite service allocation (hopefully for up and downlinks) is 
now top of their list of priorities and satellites are also be recognised in 
next year's World Amateur Radio Day



7.1.4. The Administrative Council reviewed the priorities and strategy
regarding future WRC agenda items related to amateur radio. The following 
priorities were
established: a harmonized allocation including amateur-satellite at 50 MHz, 
a wider
harmonized allocation at 160 meters, expansion of the 10 MHz amateur 
allocation and a
worldwide, secondary allocation of approximately 150 kHz at 5 MHz.

10.6. In light of the anniversary of the launch of OSCAR 1 in December, 1961 
and the
launch of OSCAR 2 in June, 1962, the Administrative Council selected the 
phrase, “Amateur
Radio Satellites: Celebrating 50 Years in Space” as the theme for World 
Amateur Radio
Day, 18 April 2012.
