630 & 2200 Meters to Open as Early as October 16, 2017
The link to the sign-up page is here: https://utc.org/plc-database-amateur-notification-process/
The effective date for use of the new bands by amateurs was published in today's Federal Register. The relevant pages are at: https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-09-15/pdf/2017-19578.pdf
The FCC's Public Notice is at: http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2017/db0915/DA-17-893A1.pdf
John is asking all amateurs to register, even if they don't plan to use these bands in the near future, as the FCC rules prohibit UTC (the Utilities Technology Council) from deploying PLC in these bands
closer than 1 kilometer from registered stations. Registration now will protect your ability to use our new MF/LF bands in the future.
