and digital modes". That is a dumb statement. If only CW and digital 
modes were allowed, those modes certainly do take less and width and you
 certainly could crowd a lot more signals on the bands, but we don't

 hams now process their audio through audio mixers for more "hi-fi" 
quality on SSB, which only increased the bandwidth and is absolutely 
unnecessary and a waste on SSB. We don't need 10 kHz wide signals on the
