FCS Member Groups

Spectrum Strategy Group

Industry business growth is very often predicated on air traffic capacity for the radio communications necessary to support the operations of the business or the customers' communications.  Thus radio spectrum has become a vital resource for the achievement of business goals and of service obligations.

The UK can no longer operate in isolation.  Radio spectrum alignment with the greatest possible number of other countries is essential.  The advantages of scale not only affect price of radio equipment but influence the entire value chain.  This is therefore a matter of interest to industry that the international radio spectrum debate includes their requirements. 

The Spectrum Strategy Group (SSG) exists to unify FCS policy on radio spectrum matters

SSG Objectives 
- To establish FCS spectrum positions on national policy matters 
- To contribute to the UK Government and Ofcom positions on spectrum matters in EU and CEPT forums
