telecommunications engineers. There is a spirit of professionalism, cooperation and consensus-building in these groups, despite the fact that everyone is there to advance their particular causes.

The International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) has been represented at CCIR meetings in Geneva and Helsinki this past year, and has contributed papers giving a global view of the amateur and amateur-satellite services. A summary of the lARU's WARC-92 preparation activities appears on page 67 of the January, 1991 edition of QST.

All of what has just been described doesn't do the whole job, particularly as the world prepares for WARC-92 and perhaps future WARCs. There are many other opportunities for radio amateurs, as individuals or representing an organization, to give telecommunications professionals, regulators and the general public a better idea of the contributions of the amateur and amateur-satellite sen/ices. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and other professional organizations hold numerous conferences throughout the US and the world. Radio amateurs have given some excellent papers at these conferences, but there are many additional opportunities. Properly done, radio amateurs can get the word out on the state-of-the-art technical contributions of the amateur and amateur-satellite services.—W4RI
