The rest of my statement that you quoted went on to say that perhaps we (in the US) should relax the regulations considerably and see what happens. We might find that subbands by mode or bandwidth aren’t needed, as they aren’t in many other places. I suspect that would be the case. I don’t recall you mentioning if commercial activity is allowed on the ham bands in Europe, is it? If not, then I would think there would be similar concerns as here with Winlink. However, perhaps there aren’t enough hams there doing commercial traffic, or enough bothered by it, to complain. Or, as you say, the regulators don’t care and the commercial traffic would need to rise to a level where the commercial carriers complain to the regulators.
