[Boatanchors] ARRL Band Plan

One thing about the ARRL's bandplan is that it has no basis in law!  What must be obeyed is what is contained in 47 CFR Part 97 Section 97.305.
Also, the ARRL does not even follow their present bandplan wherein the frequency 7290 kHz is specified for AM operation and the ARRL broadcasts bulletins, using LSB, on that frequency every night!
There are all sorts of bandplans around the world and, among those bandplans, there are often conflicts.  As such, there is no universal bandplan.  Basically, a bandplan is a "gentlemen's agreement" and, often, gentlemen have different opinions! Glen, K9STH

Are you aware of the new ARRL BAND PLAN?

Many of us use 7100-7125 kHz daily for CW.  They want to absurdly give it to RTTY! There is 
plenty of space already for RTTY. This is a BAD proposal! Spread the word and also send 
your comments to ARRL please! Copy your local League officials too.

If you haven't contacted the ARRL about this yet., please let them know your opinion about 
giving 7100 - 7125 MHz to RTTY!!! There may be other areas that interest you too. 

Don't put it off. Please comment by APRIL 19th!!  You have a voice in this...
