RE: RE:L, S, K, Band assignments, does anybody know?

Please note that here in Europe, IFF equipment  working on
1030 and 1090 MHz is using what we call now the D band  (previously L band) !

I like your standard the best, mostly because there are "no gaps" in the
ranges like the other standards.  That alone is significant, the other
standards imply that some frequencies do not fall into a letter range and
that does not make sense to me.
