[amsat-bb] CAMSAT Frequency chaos

Only a few days ago there was a comment that a satellite launched 15 years ago was transmitting on 144.390 which was being used for weak signal meteor scatter in Europe. That was unintentional and in any case only sent a couple of very short beacons per minute.
Now we see another satellite 'licensed' very recently using exactly the same frequency and a lot of other satellites transmitting on frequencies allocated to repeaters and other services.
I presume the IARU were 'informed' of these frequencies rather than coordinating them.
I wonder if the head of licensing in Bejing is the same chap who thought the Anti satellite missile test, that produced thousands of pieces of space debris, was a good idea.
