ITU 2 phone below the band plan? KC9UOQ 3 days, 4 hours ago
When you see a "band plan", you need to realize that some sub-bands are legally established -- in the FCC regs in the USA. The low end of most HF bands is reserved for CW and Data modes by regulation, for one thing. Different license classes have somewhat different band rules, too. The rest of the band plan is voluntary, such as the PSK31 "band" at 14.070 MHz and various calling frequencies for QRP, AM, etc.

The calculation goes like this. You have 100W of RF. That's +50dBm. If you believe your 60 dB number, you should have 50-60 = -10 dBm at the input of your receiver. You'd have to check what is the maximum allowed input for your radio, but it's probably higher than -10 dBm. So *if you believe all this*, you're probably safe.

Careful! Somebody might start asking what is the "value" of the typical non-contest QSO...

Above 148 MHz,below 144 MHz Nater27 1 week, 2 days ago
Your question wasn't quite clear. Maybe this is the answer you're looking for? The Amateur band (in the US) is 144 - 148 MHz. If you have a radio that tunes below or above this band, you can listen, but you are not allowed to transmit.

HOAs have their own Union! K4KYV 3 weeks, 2 days ago
Right, but if you signed a contract? That's the problem Congress is dealing with (or should be) -- reconciling property rights, public interest, and the "sanctity" of private contracts. Hams have a better argument for the first two. Your neighbors may be focusing on the third.
