What do you think of the Part 97 rules that set up subbands by mode on the HF bands?

  1. Not a problem - no change needed. Don't fix what's not broken.

    Indeed Jim, but I said "other countries, like Australia".
    There are a lot of Hams in Europe, & those countries get by without legislated band plans.

    How many hams are there in Europe?

    How many have high-powered HF voice transmitters?

    Hams in Europe = 2

    1 is a Italian but you only hear him on 11m with a 5Kw amp ooooola oooooolah oooolahhling , it's not his fault though as all he is doing is copying the Americans :p

    The other one is in Ireland , he only fires up on 20m every 2 days , see when he turns his 20 yagi using the Antenna Rotator to the needed direction it takes him 2 days the rearrange the shack and operators position to face in the right direction , Double :p

    In the U.S., CW is allowed just about everywhere.

    Seems like a good arrangement.:)

    re: The USA seems to be the only country where the band plans have the force of law."

    After having viewed a few episodes of "Appalachian Outlaws", It is a little clearer why ...
