    France's REF calls for meeting with regulator

    On June 5. REF President Jean-Louis Truquet F5DJL called for a meeting between France's Amateur Radio Associations and the regulatory authorities

    A Google translation of the REF post reads:

    The REF wishes to make known the following proposals as they have been sent to other amateur radio associations.

    Please find below the copy of the message which was sent on 05/06/2019 by mail:

    A number of nominations to CMR23 for Frequency Request or Sharing Study have been submitted very recently, they pose a definite risk for the experimental and educational use of some of our amateur radio bands. As many associations have informed us, the REF is clearly unfavorable to these requests, which are currently the subject of no structured consultation of the French amateur radio community by the administration.

    A number of regulatory amendments that were the subject of a public consultation in 2018 are still not published more than 12 months after this consultation and some decisions of the 2015 WRC are still not applied in France, a unique situation in Europe.

    The REF therefore wants the organization in the near future of a meeting between associations and the Directorate General of Enterprises (DGE), the Regulatory Authority for Electronic Communications and Post (ARCEP) and the National Frequency Agency (ANFR) enabling a positive and responsible dialogue on these aspects, both regulatory and spectrum management, so that we can progress faster and more efficiently.

    To this end, the REF is in favor of one or several inter-association preparatory coordination meetings this summer, and suggests that the objective is to finalize a proposal document at a final meeting organized at the latest on the occasion of the HAMEXPO fair. October 12th at Le Mans.

    Your suggestions, comments and comments are welcome. Only our ability to demonstrate our cohesion to act can restore a balanced relationship that benefits the entire amateur radio community.

    With my 73
    Jean-Louis Truquet F5DJL
    President Réseau des Emetteurs Français (REF)
