I sent this message to the e-mail link for this story on the ARRL's web
page and what also appeared in the weekly ARRL Letter. At this point, it
seems they have chosen not to make any revisions to their original news

Subject: IARU Region 1 Meeting News Item

Reference news item:

The revised Region 1 band plan chart for 40 meters is shown, which was
defined on page 9 of the IARU Region 1's  final minutes. However, you
omitted the items on page 10 of the same minutes which further clarifies
the chart. The items include "Sideband Usage", "Definitions", and
"Notes". Without these items, the chart doesn't tell the whole story and
will, most likely, lead to confusion and concern.

Pete, WA2CWA


Thank you for your note. Unfortunately, we can't reprint the final
plenary minutes. As such, we provided the link in the first sentence of
the article. This enables interested parties, such as yourself, to take a
closer look into it.

Have a good rest-of-Thanksgiving-weekend!
