“Letters to the Editor”

With regard to the UK Radio Spectrum Management Report which appeared courtesy of Steve Lyons (QinetiQ UK) in the last Newsletter (#4 - dated 30 April 2002) :

I did notice a mention that the Radio Agency was now part of OFCOM. I'm afraid that this is a little premature though almost inevitable !! The legislation setting up OFCOM is going through the parliamentary

process and we anticipate becoming part of the new super-regulator about the end of 2003.

For further information, you can consult :


Mike Low (UK Radiocommunications Agency)

NB: From July, this Newsletter will be dispatched on a
