Bob, I haven't heard of any delays, just speculation from 
the ARRL and mention of moving all their digital and CW nets 
below 3.6 MCy.  As it stands, the R&O is the document that 
will be effective as it was published.  They may file for 
change or clarification of the ruling but that is, again, 
speculation.  Given their protective attitude toward 
digital, I would bet they do file.

I am sure they are not happy with the R&O, but that is the 
way it stands at present.
