    Once again, the ARRL is trying to steal 3.600 to 3.650 from Extra Class License holders. When comments come up, please voice your strong opposition to this frequency grab! This is just another gimme.

    ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio


    Ya just gotta love it... They write it on official filings.

    With this notable exception, on Page 2:

    (F) To provide RTTY/data privileges to Novice and Technician licensees in their 15-meter band segment and their 80-meter band segment, the latter contingent on the rule changes at (A) and (B) hereinabove.

    It appears that the other items are trying to partially correct the arguably excessive reallocation on 80m from 2006.

    The (F) item appears to be out of place, because there is already a pending proposal from ARRL to FCC with respect to expanding Tech privileges for data modes. Perhaps this is a "mini" version of the other petition, just in case the larger one fails?

    In any event, I don't expect this to go anywhere. The League's success rate with FCC petitions over the last 15 to 20 years has been rather low.

    If I remember correctly, that is now their legal name. That way it looks like a fact, when it is actually just a quote from a document.

    This thing is four years old, and you just noticed it?

    The FCC never acted on it, by the way.

    3600 to 3650 as CW/data? Great idea!

    Thanks for the tip; I'll be sure to post my comments in support!

    You didn't happen to notice the date on this proposal, did you? ;)

    Hmmm, I'm an Extra class licensee and I don't feel the least bit 'attacked' by this proposal

    What, they represent 20% of licensed hams? They speak for themselves; we won that fair and square from the FCC. How dare they try to steal that from us?

    "Excessive allocation???" Not a chance, the FCC awarded that to Extra Class Hams for WORK DONE. We passed a test.
