" I wonder if NRRL consulted the few Norwegian hams that are active on 630 m and if other in societies the band users were asked for advice? "
The simplest answer is no, and this is one of the reasons that I am not
a member of NRRL anymore.

Dear all,



at the next IARU Regon I Interim Meeting (Vienna, 16-17 April 2016) there is a 
proposal that concerns the 630 m band:



It is recommended that beacons will be accepted in the plan of usage of the 472 - 479 
kHz band (630 m) in addition to the Recommendation VA14_C4_REC_02:  476 - 477 kHz 
beacons – maximum bandwidth 200 Hz.  Maximum power output 1 W EIRP.  Beacon 
proposals should adhere to beacon recommendations in the IARU Region 1 HF Managers' 
Handbook, and should be approved by the IARU Region 1 Beacon Coordinator (introduced 
by NRRL)



Besides the fact that I am not a fan of the urge to put everything into strict rules and I have 
doubts about the usefulness of beacons (there are dozens of NDB's in and near the 630 m band), I do 
fear that an "official" beacon band might attract people or clubs to put up a nice 
"tech project" and leave us with the QRM.

The targeted range (476-477 kHz) is de facto used for QRSS, a some "wideband" 
CW beacons can cause a lot of harm.



I wonder if NRRL consulted the few Norwegian hams that are active on 630 m and 
if other in societies the band users were asked for advice?
