Re: 2m under threat for Thales
Noting your tin foil hat, I would just point out that in 2023 is when the parties involved will begin *discussing* re-assigning certain bands within ITU Region 1, and the requesters have already said - in their request for the discussion in 4 years - that they do not want to impact any currently active allocations for other services.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
In many people's minds this is a parallel to the US 1.25 Meter band changes a few years ago, but there are many, many differences - primarily the 1.25m (220 MHz) band was for all intents and purposes a USA-only allocation, 144-146 MHz is a global allocation.
I suspect Manufacturers will wait until regulations change before contemplating dropping bands from their offerings. Yaesu will sell a ton of 2m radios before the regulators even meet in 2023.
