SB QST ARL ARLB025
ARLB025 W1AW to change its 80-meter digital frequency

In response to the expansion of the 75-meter phone band down to 3600
kHz, W1AW will shift its 80-meter digital bulletin frequency down to
3597.5 kHz, effective Friday, December 15, 2006.

The new frequency will be in use beginning with the regularly
scheduled 6 PM EST (2300 UTC) digital bulletin on Friday December
15, 2006.

The old 80-meter digital frequency (3625 kHz) has been in use for
well over two decades.  The expansion of phone privileges on 75
meters (as part of Report  Order, WT Docket 04-140 (FCC 06-149))
prompted the change.

A possible change in the 80-meter CW frequency is being considered.
