WRC-15 has given us a new 15 Khz allocation on a secondary basis for worldwide Amateur use in the 60 meter band (for us in Region 2 it will come with a 15 watt EIRP limit)

Yippee or not? :sleep:

I think I liked the old channelized allocation better. In the US, you could at least use a full 100 watts.

If this is actually replacing the 5 channels, then you can write off 60m right now. :disagree:

I think that this "new" allocation will be in addition to,instead of a replacement of,said 60 meter channels.With the 15 watt EIRP........
