Broadcasting experts meet on sharing world airwaves
Broadcasting experts from the US, the Soviet Union, and some 120 other nations opened a five-week conference Tuesday to formulate new rules on sharing the world's airwaves.
Delegate sources said Soviet jamming of Western shortwave radio broadcasts will inevitably cause East-West friction during the conference.
US delegate Leonard Marks said at a preparatory meeting for the 1984 World Administration Radio Conference that the US would like to see the conference adopt a resolution about jamming.
The Soviet Union and East-bloc countries jam broadcasts by the Voice of America, BBC, the West German Deutsche Welle, Radio Free Europe, and Radio Liberty.
