ARLB020 ARRL requests members' input on recent FCC "omnibus" Report
and Order

The ARRL is requesting member input concerning the FCC's Amateur
Radio proceeding, WT Docket 04-140, released October 10. The Report
and Order will not take effect until 30 days after publication in
the Federal Register. This publication date is not yet known.

The complete text is available for viewing as a PDF file on the FCC
Web site,
http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-06-149A1.pdf.
A summary is available on the ARRL Web site,
http://www.arrl.org/news/stories/2006/10/11/100/.

The ARRL is specifically seeking member guidance on how the changes
will affect current operating activities on 80, 40 and 15 meters
(see the current ARRL band plans,
http://www.arrl.org/FandES/field/regulations/bandplan.html, and an
ARRL FAQ, http://www.arrl.org/announce/regulatory/wt04-140/faq.html,
which includes a chart showing the band changes).

Comments may be submitted by e-mail to bandplan@www.arrl.org.  All
e-mails will be read and considered, but individual responses will
not be possible due to the message volume expected. The deadline for
comments is October 31.
