Bernie, you're so right.  The issue is really the attempt to regulate 
by bandwidth.  Setting limits will certainly lead to yet more stress 
and grief between hams, but is meaningless unless you measure it 
properly.

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
