RADIO POLITICS: WRC-2003 REPORT The 2003 World Radiocommunications Conference is winding down in Geneva Switzerland. We have the latest in this report. -- It now looks clear that the mandatory international Morse requirement for access to the HF bands is to cease. Colin Thomas, G3PSM, an advisor to the UK delegation to the ITU World Radiocommunication Conference, reported on Monday the 30th of June that, unless there was a major shift during the week, the mandatory Morse code requirement for HF access would disappear at the end of the conference. However, if any administration feels that it needs to keep the requirement, it has the right to do so. Colin reiterated that nothing is certain until the final acts are signed at the end of the week.
