Abstract: The United States Administration has proposed for the 1979 WARC (World Administrative Radio Conference) to move the BSS (broadcasting–satellite service) in ITU (International Telecommunication Union) Region 2 from the band 11.7-12.2 GHz to the band 12.2-12.7 GHz, which is also allocated to the terrestrial FS (fixed service). This report discusses the potential of sharing between the BSS and the FS in the band 12.2–12.7 GHz. It is concluded that sharing is feasible under certain conditions.

Keywords: interference; 1979 World Administrative Radio Conference (WARC); band sharing; BSS (broadcasting-satellite service); FS (fixed service)
