Positive outcome for broadcasting at WRC-23

EBU tech-i 059

The EBU brought a strong team and strong messages to the ITU World Radiocommunication Conference 2023 (WRC-23). The cover photo of Issue 59 of tech-i magazine, the first to be published since WRC-23, shows Doreen Bogdan-Martin, ITU Secretary-General, during the opening ceremony at the Dubai World Trade Centre. On pages 10 and 11 we report on the successful outcomes for broadcasters, in particular the decision to retain the lower UHF band for broadcasting until at least 2031.
