Re: The 30m Band Utilization Chart -- 2 June 2011
- Ian, this reality of crowdness is part of what I love about the 200hz V4 concept. AND why I whish RMS Express ability,like Airmail limiting
a session to 500hz.
I have learned it is some protocoll difficulties in WINMNOR, but on Pactor 1,2<=>3 it is already in the SCS protocol, so that might be an easier task.
My thought is that when not REAL emcomm, then it is more polite for a ham staying within 500hz only.
It is not good behaviour using more BW than necessary for the task, especially whithin IARU recommended narrow segments, but could be used wide during a REAL emcomm event.
As it also is not good behaviour blocking a small wide band segment with a slow 500hz mode.
Apart from that there is a LAW issue on 30m in some countries as well.
Norway is one (max 1000hz on 30m), and I belive that Canada has limitations as well, maybe others?
Thanks very much for your good work.
