ARLB024 FCC "omnibus" rule changes not yet in effect

The new Amateur Radio rules detailed in the recent "omnibus" FCC
Report and Order (R&O), WT Docket 04-140, adopted October 4 and
released October 10, are not yet in effect. The R&O is available on
the FCC Web site,
http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-06-149A1.pdf.

The changes will become effective 30 days after they appear in the
Federal Register, the official daily publication for rules, proposed
rules and notices of federal agencies and organizations. Since
publication has not yet occurred, the effective date of the Part 97
rule changes cannot be determined. The ARRL will announce the
effective date of these new rules as soon as it's known.

The "omnibus" R&O does not include action on the Commission's
proposal to eliminate the Morse code requirement for all license
classes. A Report and Order in that proceeding, WT Docket 05-235, is
still pending, and the ARRL will announce when the Commission
releases it.
