Press Release, 23 August 2016
The directors of IARU Region 3 met in Tokyo on 22nd and 23rd August 2016 at the office of JARL HQ. Present were Directors Prof. Rhee HL1AQQ, Peter Young VK3MV, Don Wallace ZL2TLL, Wisnu Widjaja YB0AZ, Shizuo Endo JE1MUI, Gopal Madhavan VU2GMN,and Secretary Ken Yamamoto JA1CJP.
Tim Ellam VE6SH President IARU and Reinaldo Leandro YV5AM President Region 2 also attended the meeting.
The directors reviewed the actions taken to implement various resolutions that were recorded during the Region 3 conference held in Bali Indonesia last year.
All documents in general use, including all guidelines, have been reformatted uniformly for ease of reading and have been posted on the Region 3 webpage.
Special attention was made to study actions required by all societies to support the move by IARU for spectrum defense and expansion at the upcoming WRC in 2019.
IARU is seeking the support of Region 3 societies for Agenda Item 1.1 - 50 MHz amateur allocation in Region 1 for harmonisation worldwide.
IARU Region 3 will have representation at the APG meetings leading up to WRC 19.
Communication between societies and the IARU R3 has been identified as an essential requirement and the Region 3 webpage will soon have interactive pages where the societies can update information themselves and post important news items that concern them.
Major work is underway to reformat the Region 3 band-plan to bring it in line with other regions and also make it easier to obtain relevant information.
The reactivation of amateur radio in Fiji and the other Pacific islands in the region is being actively pursued.
Discussions also took place on assisting newcomers to the hobby, especially young operators, with low cost entry level transceivers.
An award has been instituted by WIA to recognise excellent Single Operator achievement within Region 3 in the IARU HF Championship.
The next meeting of the directors has tentatively been set for the first week of September 2017, soon after the Tokyo Ham Fair.
