Dear All,
as President of AMSAT Italia I wrote a letter, in February 2011, to the 
italian Ministry on this issue and the result was just a letter to all 
the italian Radio Amateur Associations reminding them that, by virtue of 
the IARU Band Plan, they will avoid to transmitting by terrestrial 
repeaters in the band 145.800-146.00 MHz. We also asked ARI to join us 
in this action but we didn't receive any support.
The point is that the italian Ministry, to those Radio Club asking to 
use the band 145.800-146.00 MHz for terrestrial repeaters, has given its 
I also remember that in the South Africa IARU Region 1 mtg  in August 
2011, there was an action given to a radio amateur (OE3MZC) that raised 
this issue, but I do not know what has been done so far.
I hope that with the newly elected CDN of ARI, the national 
representative of IARU in Italy, we can define a common action towards 
the italian Ministry.
Thanks for your attention to this problem and we accept any kind of 
suggestions to solve the problem.
73, Emanuele
