About the spectrum planning work program tune-up

The ACMA—through its Spectrum Planning and Engineering Branch—is responsible for national radiofrequency planning for broadcasting and radiocommunications services, the regulation and coordination of satellite networks and the filing of satellite networks with the International Telecommunication Union Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R).

The spectrum planning work program tune-up is an ACMA initiative to update industry on the ACMA’s current spectrum planning projects and ongoing activities. This inaugural forum will provide a broad overview of ACMA spectrum planning activities, rather than focusing on one specific issue.
