- New technologies are being constantly developed to share radio frequency spectrum and geostationary satellite orbit, two limited natural resources, so that all the Radiocommunication networks the world over may function in an interference-free environment. In fact, global radio regulations have been designed to ensure equitable access to the radio frequency spectrum, freedom from harmful interference, standardisation of radio systems etc. under the aegis of the International Telecommunication Union, Geneva.
- Today, Radiocommunication in one form or the other is used in all walks of life such as in sound and television broadcasting, satellite communication, microwave systems, communication systems for aircrafts and ships, amateur radio, radio astronomy, public telecommunication networks in urban and rural areas, remote control devices, space research, cellular phones, radio paging etc.
