tech portion of 1o meter band
i was wondering if some one could tell me what modes sre allowed in the tech portion of the 10 meter ban i know there is cw but what about fm am lsb and usb
AM and FM are not permitted. CW is allowed anywhere. LSB and USB permitted between 28.3 and 28.5. Data is allowed below 28.3 in the tech portion.

As others have pointed out, a technician can't do AM or FM on 10 meters.
You really should have a printed copy of the rules and regs to refer to. The ARRL website offers a copy for sale and other sources exist.. Get one !

"The best number is 73. Why? 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror (37) is the 12th and its mirror (21) is the product of multiplying, 7 and 3. ... In binary, 73 is a palindrome, 1001001 which backwards is 1001001."
-Dr. Sheldon Cooper, (Jim Parsons), "Big Bang Theory"
"Just to invite your attention to "73" in Morse code--also a palindrome."
You know, it never really made sense to me that techs were allowed ssb and not fm on 10m. You would think that it would be the opposite beings the tech license is geared more toward repeater use. Just an observation, carry on.

In lieu of achievement we have mediocrity.
Who ever expected the FCC, etc. to have common sense?

There seems to be some serious political opposition to this idea.

Even during the last sunspot peak, the frequencies between 28.8 Mhz. and 29.0 were very lightly used. I don't believe we need any more 10 meter repeaters, but it would be nice to have another section of the band where we could operate FM. I think a lot of FM simplex users have moved down into the satellite band on 10, and while we don't have any birds currently using it, it will make things difficult in the future if we do.
But, it's not rocket science to get a General so you can operate on 10 FM, either, and even without the Techs, when the band is open, there's plenty of activity. It's starting to look like F-skip on 10 may be spotty at best during the next sunspot cycle, so the whole argument may be moot. 15 may be king for the next 8-10 years.
