The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has just tabled its annual report, which includes references to its activities for radiocommunications services. The ACMA has a network of fixed, transportable and mobile monitoring for the entire spectrum. It also has a compliance laboratory that carries out testing of radiocommunications devices to support industry to meet standards compliance and product labelling.

There had been a steady decline in radiocommunication interference complaints, down to 486 in 2016-17 with nearly 300 enforcement actions taken. Interference to domestic free-to-air broadcast television and radio services are treated separately, and again have declined. The ACMA’s strategy includes educating TV viewers about reliable reception needing an optimised antenna.
