Re: Big FCC Proposal



Cliff and Emily, the ARRL web page story seems to have it right.
Specifically which ARRL summary are you referring to?

73, Art  W6XD

----------------------------------------------------------------
FROM ARRL WEB:
The FCC additionally proposed a rule change that would make Kenwood's Sky
Command system legal for operation within the US. The Commission said it
believes Kenwood's proposal "will be consistent with our flexible-use policy
in the Amateur Service." The proposed amendment to ß97.201(b) of the rules
would permit auxiliary operation on 2 meters above 144.5 MHz--with the
exception of the satellite subband 145.8 to 146.0 MHz--in addition to
frequency segments already authorized. The Sky Command system permits the
user to operate certain Kenwood equipment remotely via a VHF/UHF handheld
transceiver.
