The IARU has announced that it will consolidate into one position the responsibilities for overseeing IARU’s relationship on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) matters with CISPR, the international special committee on radio interference.
IARU President Tim Ellam, VE6SH/G4HUA, said October 22 that the IARU Administrative Council had decided to merge the EMC Advisor and an EMC Coordinator posts. As a result, EMC Advisor Christian Verholt, OZ8CY, will be standing down from his role, with the Administrative Council’s appreciation for his work over some 20 years.
All EMC matters relating to CISPR and associated issues will now be handled by EMC Coordinator Thilo Kootz, DL9KCE. He chairs the Region 1 EMC Committee, but in his CISPR role, he reports to the Administrative Council.
