60 meters - digital use w8mrl 1 week, 1 day ago
This thread contains the letter from the NTIA clarifying the use of digital modes. It mentions the use of one very narrowband digital mode, PSK31.
This letter indicates that the NTIA is aware of the ARRL proposal for multiple PSK or CW signals on channel and provides a response.

Converting a 80M dipole to 160M ? hamwillyt 2 weeks, 5 days ago

You need to add about 66' on each side of the dipole.

An 80M dipole is typically around 125 feet from end to end, while a 160M dipole needs to be around 257 feet from end to end. The exact length will vary depending on height above ground and wire insulation. The demo version of EZNEC can be used to calculate a more accurate starting value than the traditional 468/f formula.
