Re: Proposed Band plan and uBitx

Ken Hansen

We're now a week into discussing a regulatory issue in one country on an international forum about a particular line of radios.

The BITX20 group has just under 8,000 members, I dare say a good portion of them are outside the influence of the FCC and the ARRL.

I understand the connection between increasing privileges and an affordable radio option like the uBitx, but I have to believe there's a more US-centric place for this discussion to continue.

Ultimately this is a technical forum, and the expansion of Technician privileges in the US is not a technical discussion.

I'm not a moderator, I'm not telling anyone what to do, I'm just pointing out the international nature of the group for consideration.

ARRL has proposed an upgrade in privileges for Tech hams Techs will get a chunk of 80SSB, chunk of 40SSB and a chunk of 15SSB. There are other changes in the data portions of the bands but, instead of describing everything, I will attach a link to the ARRL site and you can read it for yourself.
