As decided by WRC-03, we get the upper part of 40 meters back this
month, world-wide!

It almost seems like very few want this information disseminated, I
almost fell out of my chair after bringing in the latest issue of ER
in from the mailbox. I thought it was NEXT year.

Nothing to be found on the ARRL site, except an editorial back in 2000
proposing the return of the upper part of the band. For every two
things they do right, it always seems they develop a bad case of
cephalo-posterioritis on something else, and a lot of the reporting is
a day late and a dollar short.

I then spent some time looking through AMfone.net, but they don't seem
to be discussing it either.  Makes me wonder if the saying about
fone-only operators might be at least partially true: "Without CW, its
just CB."  ;) And maybe they're just fine sitting on one frequency on
a band that usually goes flat by 10pm.

The only place I found on the net that has it straight and out in the
open is Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/40_meters

I don't get it... Unless the word gets out, there'll be no one ON the
upper part of 40m when it opens up! C'mon, this is a BIG deal!

I'm betting this news is a big surprise to many here, please respond
to the thread if that is correct.

Regardless, three Sunday nights from now I'm going to have the DX-100
fired up on 7290!
