Michael, Have you been able to decipher what "WHERE THE NECESSARY BANDWIDTH EXCEEDS 8 KHZ, THE MAXIMUM POWER SPECTRAL DENSITY FROM THE TRANSMITTER MUST NOT EXCEED 1 WATT PER 100 KHZ" means ? In the UK leglslation etc. this terminology is used - but I believe that measurement distances may cited (somewhere). The best guess of many very competent colleagues of mine that I have been talking with is that EVERY Amateur will now need a good, calibrated Field Strength meter.... ;-) Nowhere in the Foundation, Standard or Advanced syllabi are these concepts referred to... Therefore we have a skills gap in the 10,000 +- 100 individuals (yes there are only 10,000 of us... fact) that have licenses in Australia and what has just become regulation ! ..... The ACMA appear to be like blind sheep and just roll-over what OFCOM does in The UK. All these changes mirror OFCOM standards i.e. why we only will ever have 400W .... Unless (see last para....) If you have concerns regarding the Omnibus Legislation, its content, and/or perceived competency of those that worked on and composed the document you have a right to complain to The ACMA or Minister ... and you should. These forums just go around and around in circles. If you just sit on your hands nothing ever gets fixed. All that happens is that we lose spectrum .... The same goes for Amateurs of any other nation that do not like something. There is no point bitching and whining on social media - this just destroys souls and saps enjoyment of what we do. Get of your butts and actually do something about it ! Pen an email to your regulator or your parliamentary rep ! One entity raising issues in formal circles is written off in the Sir Humphrey Appleby of "Yes Minister" playbook as a nutter; many raising concerns formally - well that becomes a problem that needs to be investigated. A torrent of expressions of concern - well that creates change. It also makes bureaucrats wary of making change. 73 Steve I VK3VM / VK3SIR Ps: Email me if you need contacts !
