IMPORTANT MESSAGE for US Stations:
December 16, 2013
The FCC has received a request from the ARRL to eliminate the ?symbol rate? restrictions in the HF bands. The FCC has requested comments on the ARRL's petition. If the rule change the ARRL requests is adopted (generally about a year is needed to satisfy all the procedural and legal requirements of changing a rule) US Amateurs will be allowed to use Pactor 4, and other such higher speed modes, which allow much more speed and robustness in message delivery than is currently available. Actually, the ARRL's proposal suggests a maximum bandwidth of 2.8 KHz, which is greater than any currently used ARQ digital mode used in the Amateur service.

The proposal does NOT change the digital/voice allocations in the HF spectrum, but it allows us to utilize the existing ?narrowband? spectrum—the CW, data, and RTTY bands– much more efficiently.

Your comments on the ARRL's proposal are requested. Please send your comments to the FCC via email to Dave Skolnick at: RM11708@skolnick.org . Dave has agreed to print, and then mail, all individual comments to the FCC. We all thanks Dave for his gracious offer of time.

Here is an example of how to comment to the FCC. USE YOUR OWN WORDS, AND PLEASE DO THIS ASAP. WE ONLY HAVE A FEW DAYS LEFT.

From: (your full name, address)
Subject: Comments on RM-11708
Please record my approval of RM-11708, which will eliminate the 300 baud symbol rate restriction.

Thank you,

Name, US callsign.

Of course, if you disapprove, please state this.
