    The SMC members do not seek to amend parts of the Commission’s Rules that pertain exclusively to, nor do they plan to utilize spectrum allocated exclusively for, amateur, maritime, or aeronautical services.

    This is something that has been expected for some years.

    The "High-frequency trading" concept (which has nothing to do with the HF radio spectrum) is critically dependent on low-latency data communications.

    Even the latencies in fibre-optic long distance circuits are "too long", so well-heeled interests are looking into the use of HF ionospheric circuits for transferring time-critical financial data.

    Several evaluation systems have been fielded, and there are some information on the "web". For the Nordic HF Conference HF19 I wrote
    a presentation on the subject:

    "Overview of the renewed interest in intercontinental point-to-point HF circuits aimed at reducing latency in “high-frequency trading” stock market applications"

    Expect this subject to become an agenda item at future WRC:s.
