This does not sound like it is going well, 6kc, might as well go to ssb.   I 
always object to small groups coming up with " great ideas" to help the rest 
of us. arrl does not represent me or the majority of hams.   lets see, we 
can not eat fat food, salt,   burn gasoline, etc. etc.   all a suggested 6kc 
bandwidth will do is produce more comments from those that immeadiatly think 
it is law, after all "I saw it on the internet"   guess my KWS1 is also no 
good as it is 3.1 kc .   Bernie
