I was having an interesting conversation with @W4NNF earlier, on the possibility of trading the relatively-unused 220MHz band in the US for something in the HF range that was more useful or desirable for amateur radio. Given the world's affinity for VHF and shorter wavelengths in general (for LMR, satellite, and other infrastructure-dependent communications systems), there aren't a lot of active users of HF beyond AR. Even broadcasting is exiting HF en masse. That made me wonder what other people would think of a possible future arrangement between IARU, ITU, and their member states and organizations, where AR worldwide might be willing to trade some VHF+ space for more/larger HF allocations. It seems to be a trade that would be agreeable to the users of those spaces, so it could be considered win-win, given current trends. The people who say "use it or lose it" could also use this as an opportunity to get bands that people might actually "use." So if you had the opportunity to trade one or more VHF and shorter wavelength bands for more HF space... 1. Would you do it? 2. What band(s) would you give up? 3. What band(s) would you want to gain in return? Amateurs in many countries have huge allocations in VHF+, so MHz for MHz, we have a lot of space to trade, should the opportunity arise.
