 I am puzzled by the arrl wanting to change the lower end of 80 meters yet 
again, taking away 50 kc of phone. I see arguments that CW nets had to move 
below 3,600, why? They could operate anywhere!

Wed. a bit before 10 AM EDT I turned on the rx to 40 meters and was 
surprised to hear  dozens of high speed CW stations then realized they were 
calling cq test. Another contest, then at 10 AM the entire CW portion went 
dead, only hiss and crackle. Nothing to be found any where.   Seems like 
some only operate contests.

Also concerned that the arrl will propose a band width limit to conserve 
space.  What are we saving it for?  Most of the day there is little or no 
activity.    Bernie W8RPW
