Re: Cable Modems on HAM bands?

The term "New" is in relation to the Docsis standards.  The most recent
standard defines the frequencies I gave.  In North America, there is no
"frequency" allocation in CATV.  The operators can use whatever standards
they want.  While it's true that most of the modems probably use the 5 to 42
MHz band because of backward compatibility, the actual Docsis standard has
the 5 to 65 MHz range.  The operator can use whatever frequencies in that
range he wants.
