For me, the past 15-plus years of working with GVF has been quite a ride. Entering the mix of sIRG (now SIG) and GVF with Carrier ID was a journey in itself. However, without our colleagues in GVF during that period, CID would not have succeeded! This, along with Jammers and Pirates (the RF kind) to WRC and Training, Radio Frequency Interference and the rapid growth in satellite technology development kept both groups busy and still does. GVF’s regulatory expertise and experience of our business is second to none! As just an engineer, regulation always seemed to be that “nuisance topic” to us “practical bunch” but the GVF team, over the years, won me over. So, thank you GVF for that and your continuing hard work your team does for our industry.
