A Report on Frequency Management within the Executive Branch of the Government
This report by the Director of Telecommunications Management on Frequency Management within the Executive Branch of the Government contains an appeal for immediate implementation of a major planning program for the future allocation and use of the radio spectrum. . . . [The radio spectrum] is our sixth natural resource and perhaps the most important unseen public servant for our Nation. . . . This report concludes by recommending that:
a long-rang planning program for the allocation and use of the radio spectrum be instituted forthwith to provide a practicable and continually available guide for the orderly development and use of the radio spectrum in such a manner as to ensure the satisfactory accommodation of present and foreseeable frequency requirements found to be in the national interest.
These recommendations are consistent with the objectives of both the Director of Telecommunications Management and the Federal Communication Commission. . . .
This report is issued under Executive Order No. 10995 of February 16, 1962, As Amended May 1964 – October 1966
