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: 01-09-2019
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.

Other Development of an algorithm for receiver Intermodulation (IM)
Development of an algorithm for calculation of Receiver Intermodulation products considering its future implementation in SEAMCAT
S: 14-09-2018
T: 01-09-2020

Deliverable: Others: Algorithm for Intermodulation

The algorithm should

-       be able to work in the frequency domain

-       be applicable for various modulation formats between an interfering Link TX and victim Link RX.

-       run fast enough to allow for a sufficient statistical number of eventswithin a reasonable time.

-       contain a sufficient number of parameters  to reflect various RX models

Once the algorithm is considered stable and agreed in WG SE, STG will implement the algorithm in SEAMCAT.

Other Low power audio PMSE in the aeronautical frequency band 960-1164MHz FM51_10
To study the possible use of low power audio PMSE (excluding airborne use) in the aeronautical frequency band 960-1164MHz.
S: 29-09-2017
T: 24-05-2019
See documents SE(17)082 and SE(17)082A01 and ECC(18)146 section 10.13. 

ECC intends to adopt in March 2020 (PC in July 2019) an ECC Report on CEPT investigations on possible usage of low power audio PMSE in the band 960-1164 MHz. The main body should be prepared by WGFM and should aim to be rather short,including general frequency management considerations.

The deliverable prepared by WGSE on the technical studies relating to sharing of low power audio PMSE (excluding airborne use)with aeronautical applications in the frequency band 960-1164 MHz, to be provided to WG FM at its meeting in June 2019. If there is no consensus on the technical analysis, the report will include all technical analyses under discussion. In this case, the conclusion will be limited to presenting the differences between each analysis from a technical perspective.

ECC Report Compatibility studies for the Railway Mobile Radio (RMR) systems in the 900 MHz range and in the band 1900-1920 MHz as well as in the tuning range of 2290-2400 MHz. 

To perform technical compatibility studies for the impact on RMR (Railway Mobile Radio including GSM-R and Future Railway Mobile Communications System - FRMCS) in the bands 870-876/915-921 MHz 1900-1920 MHz as well as in the tuning range of 2290-2400 MHz.

Compatibility cases to be studied are detailed in the LS from FM to SE, doc SE(18)048:

ECC PT1 will define the least restrictivetechnical conditions (BEM) including potential EIRP restrictions for RMR toensure coexistence with MFCN base stations. See doc SE(18)049 FM LS to PT1:

Cooperation with ECC PT1 on MFCN.

Cooperation with SE24 on SRD inthe 900 MHz range.

ECC Report To assess the feasibility of establishing a common set of technical conditions under which fixed service applications and other outdoor envisaged uses/applications may coexist within the 57 – 66 GHz range. SRD/MG_44
To study:

(1) Envisaged outdoor use cases/applications and their technical characteristics/requirements, including outdoor nomadic/mobile applications as appropriate.
(2) How these outdoor uses/applications through the use of appropriate mitigation measures can enable coexistence with fixed service applications, in uncoordinated manner and under a common authorisation regime
(3) Any practicable mitigation techniques to manage the interference environment, as appropriate, across the 57 – 66 GHz taking into account different considerations (e.g. practicality, propagation conditions etc.).

S: 29-09-2017
T: 25-01-2019
PT SE19 to work in collaboration with SRD/MG and confer with other relevant parties on the candidate mitigation techniques (where appropriate). In particular, PT SE19 needs suitable elements for point 1 in the scope from interested administrations and industry.

This study should take into account ITS in 63-64 GHz, as set out in the CEPT Roadmap for 5G, item D.4.

ECC Report , Rev. ECC Recommendation 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 as a viable solution for the future to meet the increasing demand for capacity, as expressed by number of administrations. (See  ECC Report 173) 

SE19 will consider also the need of an additional ECC Report.

* 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.
