The Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) has met the substantial radiocommunication requirements of the Road World Championships Doha 2016 (RWC) with temporary frequencies assignments. CRA approved 741 different types of radio equipments such as walkie-talkies, wireless microphone systems and wireless cameras, and 88 different frequency channels for the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) sponsored by Road Cycling World Championships Organising Committee.

Qatar is the first country in the Middle East to stage this prestigious event which has been organised annually since 1921. RWC attracts pan-global broadcast and online coverage, hence clear, and interference-free operations are essential for both - the teams racing in the competition and for broadcasters.

In 2016, in addition to RWC 2016, CRA supported MotoCross Championship 2016, Qatar MotoGP 2016, Commercial Bank Qatar Masters Golf 2016, Cycling Tour of Qatar 2016, Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2016, and Qatar Total Open 2016.

CRA intends to continue to contribute to the success of these high profile sports events within its jurisdiction. For the benefits of organisers of all types of large events (sporting and non-sporting) that require use of radio communication devices and temporary spectrum frequencies, CRA has made available relevant forms and guidelines on its website.
