    ...The FCC does not manage the Band plan. The FCC issues a frequency allocation which through gentlemans agreements are managed within the community. Yes there are exceptions due to international rules. Lets get this straight please.

    Actually, they pay attention to the rules all the time. If this was not the case, where are all the FCC letters?

    As to the latest incident, operating outside the band limit imposed by a licensing authority is not good news. I would expect some DQs out of this one.

    ARRL band charts

    I just went and looked at the ARRL band chart (Feb 23 2007) and it shows both RTTY/Data and Phone/Image from 1.800 to 2.000, with no CW only area.

    You missed the side note:

    -------------------------
    Note:
    CW operation is permitted throughout all
    amateur bands except 60 meters.

    I did all 30 hours in this from a nice station in central Texas and ran at 1805.75 for an hour or so and heard a C6 running just above me for quite a while. I never worked any R1 while down there.

    The first night I had a good freq in the middle of the band but the second night I found myself jumping around as my freq either got taking by a EU or the QRM simply got too unbearable. There was very good reason to be above 1900. There were practically no empty spots below 1900 that I felt would be reasonable to run without crowding somebody else.

    As to excessive power...I just don't really see that as a plausible allegation without evidence. I ran ~1200w the entire contest. This location just happens to have some of the best soil conductivity in Texas in addition to a nice antenna. I can't help that I'm legally loud.

    But what does a 22 yr old know, anyway?

    There is a difference between band plans, and regulations. In the US phone is legal through the whole band according to FCC regualtions. Although a suggested band plan might indicate a cw only segment. Of course, on LSB anything belwo 1803 would be out of the band.

    Yes, I know. I was responding to the comment regarding the ARRL band chart.

    That being said, thanks for the R1 allocations. Is that the ITU spec or from some other source? When I see "QRP Centre of Activity", it doesn't sound ITUish....

    Always been my understanding.....Do I need to re-check the allocations??
