RM 11305 simply opens the bands to all modes, it does not widen the present 
modes due to a rule change.  The current rules would still be enforced. 
Sure some violate that, in fact I am considered by some near me in 5 land to 
be an ogre because there are some stations that are splattering and I 
pointed it out after trying to resolve it with the offending stations.  Now 
everyone in the group is looking at their signals and the offenders are 
under pressure by many to reform.

Yes they are Pete, why not give them additional room to operate?
