The President’s "Comment" published in the November 2010 issue of Amateur Radio magazine quotes extensively from the WIA’s letter to the ACMA proposing a means by which Advanced amateur licensees can seek a variation of their licence to allow higher transmitting power levels.

In response to the WIA’s letter the ACMA agreed to review the matter, and on Monday 16th May, WIA Directors, Michael Owen, VK3KI and Peter Young VK3MV met with the project team responsible for the review. The ACMA is a facts based Commonwealth regulator and the meeting assisted in clarifying the related issues of electromagnetic interference, electromagnetic radiation and associated matters.

The WIA was able to provide more detail on the background and respond to questions on this detail. The ACMA is still considering this matter. We will provide updates as we can.
