Re: V4 software test frequencies
- David. There is kind of gentlemans agreements. The NRRL do administer "on behalf of NPT" while looking at IARU reg 1 recommendations.
Most of us, but not all do respect this recommendations.
We are "self-ruling ourselves". And traditionally there have for lots of years been a very good cooperation between the NRRL and NPT.
But my personal oppinion is that digital modes has been kind of a "stepchild". This gradually is getting better.
In reality we here of course are a part of EUROPE.
But NPT (in cooperaton with NRRL has given us VFO possibilites on 60m. Secondary Basis. That is quite something.)
CW, and SSB RULES. and during tests the beloved RTTY DOUBLE RULES THE WHOLE SPECTRUM running the 1000W.
Steinar is good at calculations...I leave the statistics to him, hi.
