RCC commission to discuss redistribution of radio frequency resources
Azerbaijan, Baku, August 9 / Trend H. Valiyev /
The commission on electromagnetic compatibility of radio electronic equipment of the Regional Commonwealth of Communications (RCC) will discuss issues related to the redistribution of radio frequency resource of simultaneous audio broadcasting of the former USSR in the range of long and medium waves, the RCC said.
The issue will be considered during the 29/35 joint meeting of the committee on the management of radio frequency spectrum and the electromagnetic compatibility of radio electronic facilities and the commission on satellite communications, television and sound broadcasting, to be held in Baku September 7-9.
The group will define the necessary criteria for designating synchronous network frequencies.
Efendiyev said the work group is studying the 549 kHz, 873 kHz and 171 kHz frequencies. These frequencies should be coordinated to ensure that the transmitters in one country do not interfere with the frequencies in neighboring countries.
The range of medium and long waves in Azerbaijan is used at frequencies 891 kHz in Baku, 1296 kHz - in Pirsaat etc. The range of medium and long waves 549 kHz is not used yet, but was registered at the Azerbaijani State Administration of Radio Frequencies.
Today, all post-Soviet countries have equal rights in the use of these frequency resources, registered in the ITU (International Telecommunication Union).
After a detailed study of existing problems, the RCC working group plans to pay special attention to their technical aspects and identify optimal solutions.
The agenda of the Baku meeting of the committee includes questions to review the results of the experts' group to prepare a total frequency distribution table of the CIS countries, recommendations for the coordination of frequency assignments in the bands over 29.7 MHz, discuss the introduction of digital broadcasting, study current trends in the development of satellite communication in the RCC, etc.
