New IARU EMC Coordinator Appointed

The IARU Admin­is­tra­tive Coun­cil has appoint­ed Mar­tin Sach, G8KDF, as glob­al EMC Coor­di­na­tor. Mar­tin suc­ceeds Tore Wor­ren, LA9QL, who has served in this vol­un­teer posi­tion since 2017.

Elec­tro­mag­net­ic Com­pat­i­bil­i­ty (EMC) is a major chal­lenge for all radio­com­mu­ni­ca­tion ser­vices. Radio ama­teurs are expe­ri­enc­ing increased inter­fer­ence caused by unwant­ed radio fre­quen­cy emis­sions from a wide vari­ety and rapid­ly grow­ing num­ber of elec­tron­ic devices. The mis­sion of the IARU EMC Coor­di­na­tor is to ensure that the con­cerns and needs of radio ama­teurs are effec­tive­ly addressed in inter­na­tion­al stan­dards bod­ies, par­tic­u­lar­ly CISPR and the ITU, as well as in region­al telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions orga­ni­za­tions and at the nation­al lev­els through IARU mem­ber-soci­eties. Assist­ing in the effort is a net­work of vol­un­teers with exper­tise in the field of EMC.

IARU Pres­i­dent Tim Ellam, VE6SH, observed: “The IARU Admin­is­tra­tive Coun­cil is grate­ful for Tore’s lead­er­ship and for his will­ing­ness to con­tin­ue con­tribut­ing to this vital work. We are for­tu­nate that some­one as well qual­i­fied as Mar­tin is will­ing to take the reins. He has already rep­re­sent­ed the IARU effec­tive­ly at impor­tant inter­na­tion­al meet­ings and we look for­ward to work­ing even more close­ly with him.”

Radio ama­teurs through­out the world sup­port the work of the IARU through mem­ber­ship and involve­ment in their nation­al IARU mem­ber-soci­eties. The IARU needs qual­i­fied vol­un­teers in this and oth­er fields. For more infor­ma­tion, vis­it
