China claims a frequency for Compass.

Europe also wants the same for Galileo’s Public Regulated Service.

According to the International Telecommunications Union’s policies, the first country to start using a specific frequency is granted priority status.

And some Chinese satellites are expected to start transmitting before European satellites can.

If China gains the ownership then, Europe has to seek permission from China for its use.

Not a comfortable situation for Galileo.

Stakes are high.

Reportedly, negotiations are on.

And so is the race for GNSS.
