      ARLB007 ARRL Board Requests Member Comments About Digital Modes

      At the January 2014 ARRL Board of Directors meeting, a resolution
      was passed which asked for member feedback and input pertaining to
      the increasing popularity of data modes. The information gathered by
      this investigation is to be used by the HF Band Planning Committee
      of the Board as a means to suggest ways to use our spectrum
      efficiently so that these data modes may "compatibly coexist with
      each other."  As per the resolution, the ARRL Board of Directors is
      now reaching out to the membership and requesting cogent input and
      thoughtful feedback on matters specific to digital mode operation on
      the HF bands.

      The feedback may include, but is not limited to, the recent proposal
      the ARRL made to the FCC, RM 11708, regarding the elimination of the
      symbol rate restrictions currently in effect.  A FAQ on RM 11708 can
      be found on the web at, http://www.arrl.org/rm-11708-faq .

      The Board of Directors believes that member input in the decision
      making process is both valuable and important as well as fostering a
      more transparent organization.  It is to this end that we open this
      dialogue.

      Comments must be received no later than March 31, 2014 to be
      included in the Committee's report to the Board at the July 2014
      ARRL Board of Directors meeting.

      Please e-mail your comments to: HF-Digital-Bandplanning@...

      Concerned members may also contact their Division Director by mail,
      telephone or in person with any relevant information.
