Radio Buoys Operating in the 160 Meter Amateur Band


The Federal Communication Commission has elevated the Amateur Radio Service to primary user status between 1,900 kHz and 2,000 kHz.  In its decision, the Commission asked for comments about U.S. commercial fishing fleets who are using end-of-net radio buoys under the false assumption they are legal.

I filed comment on this question earlier this week, and it appeared in FCC’s Electronic Comment Filing System today.  You can read my comment here.
