ARRL Asks FCC to Allocate New 5 MHz Band, Retain Channels and Current Power Limit
ARRL has asked the FCC to allocate a new, secondary contiguous bandat 5 MHz to the Amateur Service, while also retaining four of the current five 60-meter channels and current operating rules,including the 100 W PEP effective radiated power (ERP) limit. The federal government is the primary user of the 5 MHz spectrum.
"Such implementation will allow radio amateurs engaged in emergency and disaster relief communications, and especially those between the United States and the Caribbean basin, to more reliably, more flexibly and more capably conduct those communications [and preparedness exercises], before the next hurricane season in the summer of 2017," ARRL said in a January 12 Petition for Rule Making.The FCC has not yet acted to implement other portions of the WRC-15 Final Acts.
The Petition for Rule Making can be found on the web in PDF format at, http://www.arrl.org/attachments/view/News/87580
