A major change in approach for the IARU is a Matrix system introduced with specific responsibilities being taken by individuals on the team at the World Radiocommunications Conference. This followed a review of the IARU efforts at the WRC in November 2015 that it could have been better coordinated and more effective.

IARU Region 3 Chairman, Gopal Madovan VU2GMN says in the coming weeks the IARU will participating in CEPT’s Conference Preparatory Group and in its Project Team meetings, and other meetings in the lead up to WRC 2019. A few weeks ago, accompanied by fellow IARU Region 3 Director, Shizuo Endo JE1MUI, they were at the Administrative Council meeting then attended the Triennial conference of IARU Region 2 in Vina del Mar in Chile, South America.

Just prior to the conference, the Administrative Council made a major decision on trying to work out the Branding of IARU across the three regions, with discussion ranging from a unified presentation on webpages and to developing a standard set of visiting cards. Also many important decisions were made and these are detailed on the Region 2 website.

Gopal VU2GMN reported that as usual the IARU Region 3 had more than its share of natural disasters and radio amateurs were at the forefront of relief operations providing vital emergency communications support.

Also writing in the latest newsletter he said Region 3 needed to improve on the work of its several committees and was working toward that aim.

The IARU Region 3 Newsletter Issue 41 is available via this Link.

Note : All IARU R3 newsletters are available on the WIA website.
