ARLB012 Revised Spread Spectrum Rules to Go Into Effect April 29,
2011

The revisions to the FCC rules affecting Spread Spectrum
transmissions will go into effect April 29, 2011. The Report and
Order was published in the March 30 Federal Register.

Details on the revisions can be found on the web at,

Adopted February 22 and released March 4, 2011, the Report and Order
eliminates the requirement that amateur stations transmitting Spread
Spectrum use Automatic Power Control (APC) to reduce transmitter
power. The Commission also reduced the maximum power of a Spread
Spectrum emission from 100 W to 10 W PEP.

The Question Pool Committee of the National Council of Volunteer
Examiner Coordinators has removed a related question, E1F13, from
the Amateur Extra Class Question Pool.
