Peter you are so correct...It is not a bandplan on AM it is a calling
frequency...The idea of a calling freq is WA2CWA this is W1PE...Hi Peter
move to 3.650 so we can chat...No more no less... Same as Chan 16 for
boaters or Chan 14 for CB or Chan 1 for FRS...If we used it that way and
if people understood that what a wonderful world it would be !!!

Ohhh and let me add 146.52 also a calling freq...

Sorry guys I am just a darn activist...

Bob W1PE

What justification would you or someone present to the FCC raise the
power level back to 1000 watts as it was a number of years ago?
And Bill said: a petition for an AM Window from 3870 to 3885.
I view the AM Window (if you want to call it that) from 3600 to 4000
KHz. I see no rational to live and operate in a 15 KHz box.

And Don's comment on removing subbands:
To remove subbands, brings to the HF bands (excluding present 160 M),
any mode, any bandwidth, anywhere. Might roll all ham radio activity
into anarchy; only the strongest survive. Bandplans are operating guides
and have no legal teeth (ex. listen to 160 M during a world-wide CW
contest); subbands are law and subject to disciplinary action if
violated. Also remember that the U. S. has a lot more licensed amateurs
than Canada.
