Progress Report

The“Explanatory paper” on 5 GHz WAS/RLAN should be used as a starting point.

The 5600-5650 MHz band should be reviewed based on the outcome of CEPT and ADCO RED investigations relating to interference from 5 GHz WAS/RLAN to meteorological radars.

The work item is limited to the frequency bands 5150-5350 MHz and 5470-5725 MHz.

The CPG-19studies and the results of WRC-19 (AIs1.16, 9.1.5) need to be taken into account
