    Document 5-E

    7 September 2007

    Original: English

    Background information

    In accordance with Resolution 95 (Rev.WRC-03), the WRC Resolutions and Recommendations

    should be reviewed at each conference.

    “resolves to invite future competent world radiocommunication conferences

    1 to review the Resolutions and Recommendations of previous conferences that are

    related to the agenda of the Conference with a view to their possible revision, replacement or

    abrogation and to take appropriate action;

    2 to review the Resolutions and Recommendations of previous conferences that are not

    related to any agenda item of the Conference with a view to:

     abrogating those Resolutions and Recommendations that have served their purpose or

    have become no longer necessary;

     reviewing the need for those Resolutions and Recommendations, or parts thereof,

    requesting ITU-R studies on which no progress has been made during the last two

    periods between conferences;

     updating and modifying Resolutions and Recommendations, or parts thereof that have

    become out of date, and to correct obvious omissions, inconsistencies, ambiguities or

    editorial errors and effect any necessary alignment;. The proposals in this document represent the review of Resolutions and Recommendations that can

    be suppressed, with appropriate reasons provided for each. In the case where an item is proposed for

    suppression as a consequential action to the proposal for a specific agenda item, those proposals are

    included in the proposal for the agenda item and not repeated here in the proposal under Agenda

    item 4.

     For reasons of economy, this document is being provided electronically. Participants are, therefore, kindly requested

    to bring their personal copies to the meeting since no others can be made available. A CD-ROM containing all preparatory documents will be provided to each participant upon arrival. C:\CONVERT\TEMP\53457836.DOC (240041) 07.05.10 07.05.10

    RESOLUTION 124 (Rev.WRC-2000)

    Protection of the fixed service in the frequency band 8 025-8 400 MHz

    sharing with geostationary-satellite systems of the Earth

    exploration-satellite service (space-to-Earth)

    Reasons: Consequential suppression based on change in footnote 5.462A at WRC-03 to include

    values contained in Recommendation ITU-R F.1502.


    Frequency allocations

    Section IV Table of Frequency Allocations

    (See No. 2.1) MOD USA/5A6/8

    5.462A In Regions 1 and 3 (except for Japan), in the band 8 025-8 400 MHz, the Earth exploration-satellite service using geostationary satellites shall not produce a power flux-density in

    excess of the following values for angles of arrival (?) under free-space propagation conditions, without the consent of the affected administration:

    2 ?135 dB(W/m) in a 1 MHz band for 0? ? ? ?

    2 135 + 0.5 (? 5) dB(W/m) in a 1 MHz band for 5º ? ? ? 25º

    2 125 dB(W/m) in a 1 MHz band for 25º ? ? ? 90º

    CMR07/5(Add.6)-E Reasons: Consequential modification based on suppression of Resolution 124 (Rev.WRC-2000)

    which resolved “to invite a future competent world radiocommunication conference to review

    No. 5.462A, taking into account Recommendation ITU-R F.1502, and to take appropriate action.”

    The above modification to No. 5.462A implements the results given in the recommends of

    Recommendation ITU-R F.1502.
