A personal observation:
A current ESA Education project. - ESEO plans to use 1263.5 MHz as an uplink to a L/V FM transponder.
2m / 70cm and S band were not possible as they are in use elsewhere on the same satellite.
The possible impact on Galileo was discussed / analysed for that frequency and no objections were raised.

ESEO, with contributions from AMSAT-UK is progressing from critical design review to engineering and flight model production.

I know amateur radio interests are represented at international meetings and negotiating spectrum is a difficult task, but the reality
probably is that unless we have some more success in allocating some 'dedicated' spectrum for amateur radio satellites, then the
chaotic trend for individual nations to allocate experimental licences in interference free zones will continue. ( ISS on 2395 etc)

"it seems that radio amateurs will lose the 23 cm band in the near future"
