[AMRadio] the 3600 - 3635 spectrum

"Alternate spectrum from 3585 - 3600."  

Does this mean that we keep the 3600 and up for voice?

Is the FCC saying these digital guys need to just move down? 

I have a lot of mixed emotions about the code exam being gone.

Last part:

Finally, today's Order resolved a petition filed by the ARRL for partial 
reconsideration of

an FCC Order released on October 10, 2006 (FCC 06-149). In this Order, the 
FCC authorized

amateur stations to transmit voice communications on additional frequencies 
in certain amateur

service bands, including the 75 meter (m) band, which is authorized only for

certain wideband

voice and image communications. The ARRL argued that the 75 m band should 
not have been

expanded below 3635 kHz, in order to protect automatically controlled 
digital stations operating

in the 3620-3635 kHz portion of the 80 m band. The FCC concluded that these 
stations can be

protected by providing alternate spectrum in the 3585-3600 kHz frequency 

Action by the Commission on December 15, 2006, by Report and Order and Order


Reconsideration. Chairman Martin and Commissioners Copps, Adelstein, Tate, 
and McDowell.
