We need your feedback
Last Friday, the RFUANZ committee held a planning day at Wellington airport. This is usually held directly after our AGM, where we consider ideas to have member participation and encourage ideas from members in areas they wish us to work through, for them.
To make this happen, we need to hear from you, our members. At the beginning of each month, you will receive an email from us, asking if there is anything you wish to share.
This could be in the form of any special projects you have undertaken/completed tests or technology updates that you have been involved with. Perhaps even problems you faced along the way and what you did to overcome such problems. So it’s really important you share your work experiences with us, so we can include in our usual monthly newsletters and others can see what you have been doing.
Join the RFUANZ Members Facebook Forum
If you are on Facebook, please join our RFUANZ private group. We have established this group as a platform for our members to share & discuss industry topics including spectrum issues, policy and planning, projects, good news stories, conference and training topics.
The committee would like to re-enforce how important it is for the members to share information with them regarding spectrum issues or ideas they are have. This could be outdated regulations that have not kept up with technology, interpretation of regulations or any questions you would like us to get answers from Radios Spectrum Management on.
Any issues or questions put to the committee would be valuable topics that would be added to their monthly meetings, and actions would be put in place to hopefully give answers. This group is not intended for sales content or product marketing.
