ARRL Bandwidth Proposal

A much better poll on amateur radio newsline:
Probably a better cut of unbiased voters.
ARRL provided 15 months to comment on the draft proposal before it was
submitted to the FCC. The "other" proposal that was submitted in June
2005 by 7 amateurs and requested no input from any other amateurs,
requests no bandwidth restrictions and voice, data, cw, and modes not
even conceived of yet, can be used by amateurs anywhere they want and
only subject to their license class. Voluntary band planning with no
legal teeth; can you imagine the fun. The digital boys will be crawling
all over the place. The voice boys will be crawling all over the place
and CW will probably get lost in the shuffle.
