You must have missed all the "dumbing down, code vs no-code, learning vs memorization" posts that have "graced" this forum for the past few years.

I realise that the US ,like the UK and many other countries , has dumbed it all down....but I believe that our foundation licence holders(our equivalent to your novices) at least are expected to have learned what modes and power they can use and where they can use it.

As a Technician he cannot use FM on 10m or go to the high end of the band where the repeaters are.

So where is the AM prohibition?
You were going to continue but say you decided against it but did continue then was concerned about insults but then then inferred the original poster did not even do some basic reading. Amazing

AM is the most inefficent composed of a carrier and two sidebands but has the highest fidelity
FM is used on 10 Meters at the top end of the band and in theory should sound the best but due to propagation variences sounds the worst
USB and LSB take a part of the AM transmission and strip away the carrier and one sideband, sounds robotic but very efficent
On 10 M USB is used most
Its like driving past a car wreck, you dont want to look, but you just can't help yourself. Thats how I felt when I saw the title of this thread. I knew it would be wreck of snide remarks and fighting, but I just couldn't help myself.
One note. Its entirely possible that the OP KNEW all of this when he took the exam, then some time went by before he actually got to the on the air part. Its pretty easy to forget 'book learning' as time goes by if you've never had a chance to put it into practice. Lets cut him some slack and try to help. Remember, the ARRL still paints a picture that all hams are nice helpful Elmers, just waiting to mentor new people. Hahahahaha!
Just my 2Hz worth....

Last time I knew, 10 meters from 28.00 28.300 was for CW and digital around 28.107. From 28.300 to 28.495 was USB for Novices and techs. 28.5 to 29.000 was for USB (general and above). 29.000 to 29.200 was for AM. 29.200 to 29.500 was reserved for japanese satelite traffic and from 29.5 to 29.695 were for FM simplex and FM repeaters. I've heard the 10 meter repeaters, but never worked any. I like USB and AM. I'd like to have a Full-gallon amp for AM & FM <evil grin>
You are kidding, right?
