Voice below 3.6 MHz
- Received this very important message from Dick Singer - things are not
what has been going around.
READ THIS CAREFULLY - and let's support those who oppose the
elimination of the "SQUEEZE" of CW.
When replying - make sure you reply only to one reflector - I've put
in several on the address.

Dick de Jim VE1JF (member, RAC HF Band Planning Committee)--
We agree; note the second paragraph of our introduction to the plan:
Our RAC President and VP-International will shortly be attending
a Region 2 Band Planning meeting; they will be presenting and
supporting a strong position paper from us requesting that
Region 2 reverse this position, which compresses both CW and
digital. We hope our position will receive broad support from
other Region 2 IARU members.
Please feel free to share this information with others who may
be interested. It appears from at least some of the comments
we are receiving that this item is being disseminated as originated
by us; the actual advocates of below-3600 voice are outside
