Yea but on HF you can only do 300… That would be breaking the speed limit.. lol
Once you have been on DSL or cable modem or T1 T3 lines, why go back.. But they are not legal on nor resemble in anyway the Amateur HF Band..
Not Apples and Oranges..
Guess it is a matter of perspective but once you are used to 9600 baud it takes ages to do the same on 300 baud, it's like going back to 14k4 dailup when you are used to adsl2.

Wow.. 300 Baud HF works FB here.. Who’s struggling do they need help.. 73 jerry
Many hams are to dependant on HF as is, Why struggle with 300 baud on 80 meter or even 1200 baud on 2 meter when you can just as easy do 9k6 or higher on 70cm and still have plenty of spectrum to spare.
Also a recent change of view from the dutch enforcement has made HF forwarding a lot harder for us, a station that is under remote controll can only opperate with a special permit unless only the licence holder can controll it and you guessed it, that permit will not be given below 28 mhz. This includes packet stations you can connect to.

Nonetheless, when c@rp like thi! s takes up 3+ KHz so some yachtsman can check his hotmail account for "Russian models who would make great wives" - AND our bands are so limited and crowded as it is -- this stuff (pactor II/III/IV/V, etc) ought to be restricted to the HF marine frequencies. Either that or we need more spectrum so that bandwidth savvy people like real hams can actually do work!
And I say the same thing about MT63 2KHz Long, too!

Does this mean that somebody besides SCS is making the obnoxious PACTOR junk that causes harmful interference wherever it is operated?
No amateur who cares about the hobby and his fellow amateurs would operate any digital mode that lacks even the basic busy detection that Packet has had for thirty years! . - Especially a digital mode that automatically widens without ( again ) checking for activity on the frequency, a sure prescription for harmful interference.
Your reference to PACTOR News might have been just for US hams, but unfortunately the PACTOR QRM does not stop at the US border but instead keeps right on going to pollute the spectrum overseas quite efficiently. It might have bveen this that Bela was referring to.
Shame on anybody who operates the SCS trash - and dares to call themselves a ham.
There is literally no excuse for it.
