Re: The 30m Band Utilization Chart -- 2 June 2011
- Nicely done on the chart Ian ! Very easy to see what's where.
Jeff you don't have to worry about emcomm operation by hams being
done away with. Take a look at the number of professional emcomm
types getting their ham tickets...they won't need volunteers to
man their comm centers soon. They will still be hams just not us.
The Winlink users don't run 24/7 and hog the band they just take
over whatever frequency they happen to be on busy or not.
Now before this turns into a Winlink bash session how about some
creative discussion on how to co-exist with the Winlink and Winmoor
users. I'll warn you ahead of time some of them are difficult at
best to reason with. I asked a few questions a long time ago and
answers ranged from none to hate mail to the frequencies are
published, in other words we own them. If you've ever had a QSO
in progress stomped by one of the robots you know what I mean.
I've even left a few digital related lists because of the arrogance
and egos of the few. I finally gave up.
The questions I asked were quite simple and I never got a decent
Why do you need so many "channels"....their wording
Why must you utilize almost 35% (at the time I asked) on 30m?
Why doesn't the "sophisticated signal detection" in WLK2k work?
Who is the international body that coordinated your "channels"?
Why can't the unattended stations stay above 10140?
Reasonable discussion invited, flames and hate mail direct please.
Oh, if it's direct please have the courtesy to sign it with your
call and real name.

> Looking at the chart only serves to reinforce my strong belief that WINLINK does not belong an the 30M band let alone on Amateur Radio AT ALL!!!! 30+ WINLINK, bandwidth hogging, frequencies in "shared" spectrum is way over the top TOO MUCH!! MARS, CAP and other Governmental communications organizations can best utilize this mode on their channelized frequencies.
