Guys and Gals,

I suggest you contact the ARRL division director where you live and express 
your feelings about the proposal.  Last night I tuned the 80 meter band and 
there was less activity in the 3.5 to 3.6 Mcy portion than in the 3.6 to 3.7 
portion.   I wonder if they have trouble only when there is some sort of 
contest and this may be an over reach?

I am not judging the merits of the proposal but am skeptical since this 
particular committee has made proposals before than were not completely 
accurate by my listening to the band segments in question.  If the digital 
band was going to be utilized sufficiently to have the problem cited in the 
editorial, then this is the time of the season for that to happen.  So 
listen at your location and let you conscience be the guide.  Remember that 
many digital signals can be contained in a small portion of the band.  If 
you have a waterfall display, take a look, if not and you have access to 
someone who has a waterfall display then go look some evening.   If you feel 
the regulation is necessary or unnecessary then so express to your division

If the link to the ARRL Committee report didn't work, look for an erroneous
line break in the URL.  The link came up on my screen as:

>>c_23.pdf >>

even though I typed it in as one line, and other lines in the message longer
than the URL came through as a single line.  That way, the URL shows up only
Do>>,  with the  >>c_23.pdf >> part missing.

If this is the case, copy and paste the whole URL as a single  line in the
address bar of your browser.  I don't know why the software that  runs
e-mail programs and web forums does this, but it happens quite frequently
with me. If I am doing something wrong, I don't know enough about operating
computers to figure out what it is.
