ECC Report Impact of wind turbines on various radiocommunication services 
Study the technical impact of wind turbines on various radiocommunication services (e.g.  fixed radio links, broadcasting, radar, etc)
S: 01-01-2014
T: 30-09-2021
National studies have shown scattering effects from wind turbines may have an effect on the available fading margin for radio services.

The study aims to provide technical results that may improve the way the effects of wind turbines are taken into account in the modelling of disturbances to radio services.

The subject is addressed through a dedicated forum group

ECC Report 260 is published (January 2017)

It is to be noted that the Netherlands Administration is developing a measurement method of ultra-low EMC emissions, which are a concern for radio astronomy. Drones are used to verify the measurement method by generating the low EMC emissions as a test. Results are expect around the end of 2017.

Technical compatibility studies related to UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System) in the 1880-1900 MHz, 1900-1920 MHz and 5000-5010 MHz bands:

• The commercial use of Command and Control (C2) by UAS in the 1900-1920 MHz and 5000-5010 MHz bands.
• The governmental use of command and control as well as payload systems by UAS in the 1880-1900 MHz and 1900-1920 MHz bands.

ECC Report Compatibility and technical feasibility of coexistence studies for the potential introduction of new terrestrial applications operating in the
 2 483.5 - 2 500 MHz frequency band with existing services / applications in the same band and adjacent bands.

To investigate the technical feasibility and coexistence for the potential introduction of new terrestrial applications in the 2 483.5 - 2 500 MHz frequency band, sharing with existing radio services / applications in the same band and compatibility with existing services / applications adjacent bands.

Existing use to be considered in the study are in-band Mobile Satellite Services (MSS), in-band MBANS devices, in-band LP-AMI devices, future in-band RNSS, in-band PMSE, radio applications below 2483.5 MHz including licensed and licensed exempt use; radio applications above 2500 MHz (MFCN). Also the impact of spurious emissions should be considered.

Investigations to take into account relevant ECC Reports including 149, 150, 165, 201, 219, CEPT Report 72.

S: 20-05-2020
T: 31-05-2021
MSS operators in the band intend to remain operators of satellite-based mobile services.

New terrestrial applications to be considered in the study based on technical descriptions and specifications of new terrestrial applications for 3GPP band 53 (see TR 36.791) noting that the standardization of a new E-UTRA operating band based upon the 11.5 MHz has been approved, facilitating 2.4 GHz LTE ecosystem development.

ECC PT1 may be involved especially with regard to the band above 2500 MHz (impact on MFCN).

SE7 is invited to work in close cooperation with SE40 as appropriate.

Other Coordinated inputs to ITU-R WP5C
Coordination of contributions related to FS channel arrangements to ITU-R F series recommendations

Deliverable: Coordinated inputs to ITU-R WP5C

Regular Work item

ECC Report To consider the doubling of maximum channel width for some selected FS bands in the range from 11 to 38 GHz (11 GHz, 18 GHz, 28 GHz, 23GHz, 32 GHz, 38 GHz).

To address the interest for wider channels asa viable solution for the future to meet the increasing demand for capacity, asexpressed by number of administrations. (See ECC Report 173)

SE19 will consider an additional ECC Report in addition to the approved revised recommendations.

S: 27-04-2018
T: 30-09-2020

To note that some of the bands are currently under study for possible 5G access under WRC-19 AI 1.13

Revision of ECC Recommendations 12-06, 12-03, (01)02, 13-02 and 12-01 are published.

ECC Report Guidelines on how to plan Bands and Channels (Carriers) Aggregation (BCA) Fixed Service Links
Develop guidelines for the proper planning of BCA FS links to meet the 5G backhaul needs in terms of network capacity. Aspects connected to link budget, e.g. the different  payload availability of the link and the use of dual band antennas have to be considered.

T: 30-09-2020
See document SE19(17)11 (SE19#76, Berlin) for a brief description of the Bands and Channels (Carriers) Aggregation (BCA) concept.
Bands likely to be considered for band aggregation are:15 GHz, 18 GHz, 23 GHz with 70/80 GHz

Other Considerations of FS use within CEPT administrations towards introduction of 5G in the 26 GHz band.
The questionnaire concern the possible future options regarding the FS currently in the 26 GHz band due to future usage of this band by 5G.
The purpose of the questionnaire is to provide a comprehensive overview on the spectrum strategy for the FS currently in the 26 GHz band envisaged by the CEPT countries.

S: 25-01-2019
T: 30-09-2020
The answers to the questionnaire should provide an overview of future plans for the FS use within CEPT administrations e.g. spectrum reorganization, migration, coordination etc..
The work of ECC PT1 (WI11) on draft Report on Guidance to administrations for Coexistence between 5G and Fixed Links in the 26 GHz ("Toolbox") will be taken into account, as appropriate

* Target dates are seen as the intended date for the final approval of the related deliverable by the responsible entity. Internal deadlines for project teams and dates for the start of Public Consultations can be reflected in the remarks column. In general this implies that the draft deliverable should be completed by the project team one WG meeting earlier for publication.
