60 Meter Band Proposal ?????

60 Meter Band Proposal -WRC 2015

The writer remember talking about 60 Meter band way back in 2004 or 2005 but unfortunately nobody take any action about this issue. In March 2014 we wrote a letter to the authority requested for a spot frequency for experiment purposes this band is good in case the 40m band goes down and we have a choice to go down to 60m and this will be good in case during emergency.

But this 60 meter proposal is on the schedule, having been added at the 2012 conference where they set the agenda for the next conference.

The FCC has published a draft proposal created by the US working group. That proposal is open for public comment until February 18. Again, it covers everything up for discussion at the WRC, but our 60 meter band proposal is in it (along with some changes to the microwave bands, but that's a topic for another list). Here's the ARRL news story on the WRC. The 60 meter proposal is short and sweet – just that bit of spectrum on a secondary basis. One extra piece of good news: The NTIA (our patron/nemisis on 60) has read over the FCC's proposal and says it's OK with them (so far)……
