thanks for reminding us the role of IARU for the amateur satellite
frequency coordination. However in the most recent years the number of
satellite launched by universities in the amateur bands is growing
faster and faster. Are all these satellites coordinated by the relevant
universities? Do you have a list of satellites already launched with an
indication of their compliance with IARU rules and possibly with ITU rules.
I do not know if any action is made by IARU, through its national
members, with respect to entities which do not fulfil these rules, and
the IARU Bandplans as well. It is important for IARU, in my
understanding to monitor the situation.
