I read on the RX-320 group that Canadian time station CHU has been
announcing that they have to do something, either move or relicense
as a broadcaster, because ITU has allocated their 7.335 MHz
frequency to broadcasting. Evidently they are looking for feedback
as to how this will affect listeners and users.
I think the Canadian time broadcasts are primarily for Canadian
users - but the exact frequency is not important to me, so the
7335 KHz outlet could move anywhere in the approximate 6 to 8 MHz
range, and I would not be adversely affected. The WWV
transmissions are especially useful because they are on even-MHz
frequencies, so if CHU moved to 8.000 MHz, that might be good.
I grew up with CHU and WWV all over shortwave, pretty much as they
are now. I think that the shortwave era will be officially over
when they cease transmissions. I don't want to see that happen.
