--Ah, yes, but....we are talking about the DC bands here. What uses, other
than military, and some diminishing broadcasting, are there? There is not
the vast bandwidth that personal wireless communications requires, and the
propagation is too quirky, besides. I'd say it's worth thinking about, having
the hambands increase, but of course, HF ham radio might not be especially
growing, either.
