The Federal Communications Commission and the National 
Telecommunicationsand Information Administration (NTIA) - the spectrum 
regulators for United States private sector and government users, 
respectively - have agreed to support a secondary MF allocation to the

Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-12), to be held in Geneva, 
Switzerland from January 23-February 17, 2010.
