Region 1 has different rules than the United States Region 2... IIRC
You would be correct.
In addition, the FCC sets the standards for what is allowed where, not the ARRL.
If you think it's bad now...
If you think it's bad now, wait until (SOME) of the Region 2 "Hams" retire and move to Region 1.
As noted many times by the ARRL, the band plans are pretty much not in effect during high volume periods and are not meant for heavy load conditions.
Causing QRM is pretty much a given any time you have stations on the air.
Running excess power. Can you provide examples of that?
1810 is bottom of band in R1
1800-1810 isn't allocated to the amateur service in ITU R1.
This has nothing to do with band plans, it has to do with compliance with licence conditions.
I don't believe any R1 country permits amateur service operation at 1800-1810 - in general, countries don't let their amateurs do anything not in compliance with the ITU Radio Regs.
Especially when it involves the service that is allocated 1800-1800 in R1.
People routinely use more power than is necessary for the given situation.
This is a comment based on US Region feedbacks here in this Forum. It is understood that different Regions have different rules.
Contesters gone wild!
And when did contesters ever pay any attention to the rules? Just listen, they do anything they desire and the rules mean little as they take over the bands.
Thank you for that fact.
I've always found it interesting that so many hams rely on the ARRL
web site and publications as the source for FCC rules.
