Moreover the radio spectrum is a unique natural resource which is a common property of all countries, be they large or small. It is unique because its usefulness depends on the ability of all countries to work out plans for sharing the spectrum so that each may enjoy radio facilities appropriately suited to its needs, and to be free of interference from the radio operations of other countries. 1 have selected from many instances in which the Department of State has participated, one in the field of International Telecommunications, which is directly related to navigation.
