    I can see why you're so offended by my position on VARA. How many folks use it on your Gateway compared to ARDOP?

    Why would it? Is the NTSD using modes not available to outside observation? It's the self-policing issue, if the general ham population can't read the traffic, and the FCC agrees all amateurs must be able to understand the transmissions of other amateurs. It's in the petition, did you actually read it?

    Apples and oranges, the rules read §97.113 Prohibited transmissions. 97.113(a)(5) Communications, on a regular basis, which could reasonably be furnished alternatively through
    other radio services.
    The last time I checked the telephone company wasn't a radio service, unless of course you want to try and make the cellular argument.

    Not yet anyway. It's that pesky self-policing mandate that amateurs are saddled with that requires decoding.

    Yep, and I think you’ll find that that self policing is going on. You just might not know about it

    Take a good look at his proposal, he clearly insinuates that anything that you do that could’ve been done by a cell phone or a satellite is illegal He didn’t put that in his proposal, but he’s getting the precedent established by writing what he wrote ; it’s a dangerous insinuation.

    That's just it; he, and many others out there, flat out do not trust Winlink Sysops like you to actually be following the rules.

    Yes, I read it, the whole thing basically, and apparently you aren’t familiar with how the current version of the transcontinental corps works! Guess what they use? I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure it’s what he hates: pactor!!! For at least a good portion of their traffic.

    I didn't ignore it, you didn't read the whole thing that limits "unspecified codes" to 6m and up. Try reading the table of authorized modes under 97.305(c). The petition only effects HF.

    Not any more than face to face conversation circumvents the telephone companies.

    I’m sorry, but he made an insinuation about pecuniary interest. I don’t think you caught that.
