New Modes on 60m: Time for a Band Plan? KX7L on 23/11/11
I see in the News and Features that the FCC has released new rules for 60m that allows CW and digital/RTTY on this "band". In order to avoid utter mode chaos, perhaps it's time to formulate a band plan (or perhaps the better term is a "channel plan" for the band. I.e. a couple channels for SSB, a channel for CW, maybe 1 for RTTY and one for PSK31 and other digi modes. (though given the limited BW, perhaps just the narrowest band digi modes make sense) The neat thing about PSK31 is that one channel is almost like an entire band!
Perhaps this is already in the works?
