Hummh... But since the ITU satellite band covers the entire 10m band, then
the uplink could conceivably be in the old NOVICE/TECH 10m subband.  THus
they could play.  But with the recent restructuring, didnt almost all
Novices and TECH-PLUS's upgrate to general?  SO I guess putting it in this
TECH+ subbband for such a small percentage of users would be of negative
value, since that is a BUSY portion of the band anyway and would be too
much QRM...

Just a thought...
