FCC has only set the 1/1/2013 date for 12.5 kHz. No date set for 6.25.

upgrade equipment from 25 Khz wide channels to 12.5 and then 6.25... This will create a bunch of gear that you might be able to get
for free and use at Summer Camps etc... the change is starting now, and must be compete by 2013.
I was under the impression that only 12.5 had to be completed before 1/1/2013.
I forget the exact deadline for 6.25 but it's not 2013, is it?
