Abstract:

This thesis contains a study of International Radio Spectrum Allocation and Regulation with particular emphasis upon the U.S.s relationship with the International Telecommunications Union. ITU. The authors develop a model of the technical, political and economic aspects of the radio spectrum allocation and regulation processes. The principal elements of the model concern the benefits of use, increased demand, cost of technical expansion, technological advances and the decision making process of the international regulatory body. In particular, a significant amount of attenion is directed toward the historical development of the ITU and spectrum allocation within the framework of the authors model. Concluding work focuses on the use of the model to determine possible U.S. courses of action with respect to future World Administrative Radio Conferences WARC. Author
