R&TTE Directive 1999/5, of the Article 3, point2 reads:
2. In addition, radio equipment shall be so constructed that it effectively uses the spectrum allocated to terrestrial/space radio communications and orbital resources so to avoid harmful interference
This is in accordance with ITU and WMO incentives to improve spectral usage of radiosondes.
