Letter 8/2016

FCC PROPOSES RULE CHANGE:
The FCC has proposed to revise the Amateur Service Part 97 rules in
response to the ARRL’s so-called “Symbol Rate” Petition for Rule
Making (RM-11708), filed in late 2013, and it has invited comments on
its recommended changes. The Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) in
WT Docket 16-239, released on July 28, had been making the rounds at
the FCC since May. ARRL had asked the FCC to change the Part 97 rules
to delete the symbol rate limits in §97.307(f) and replace it with a
maximum bandwidth for data emissions of 2.8 kHz on amateur frequencies

Serving radio amateurs in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington States.
