    2 meter band in danger: CQ solidarity


    This week a headline has alerted the global radio amateurs community: France plans to kick us out of the popular 2 meters band (144-146 MHz in Europe).

    The spark that has triggered the alarm is the presentation of a paper on this matter at the CEPT meeting next week (see the source news).

    Spontaneously, an immediate reaction has begun to spread: let's occupy the 2 meter band on Saturday, June 15, 2019, between 20:00 and 21:00 UTC.

    EURAO supports this protest action and encourages all hams world wide to show their dissatisfaction with this disgusting attempt, joining the event with QSOs in repeaters, direct and in any mode.

    Let our voice reach the highest spheres!

    It is NOT just a threat in France. If you read the CEPT meeting agenda, this 144-146 MHz reallocation request is not just intended for ITU Region 1 (Europe and Africa) but Regions 1, 2, and 3 (essentially the whole world)! Yet, not a peep from the large U.S. Ham Radio community?

    Does the U.S. have a rep at the ITU? If so how do we contact that person?

    Question, does the ARRL have a plan to submit a protest to the ITU commission and the FCC ?
