- Removing the current 300-baud rate limitation, subject to certain conditions, but limit the bandwidth of all digital mode signals below 29 MHz to 2.8 kHz, the approximate bandwidth of an SSB voice signal;
- Permitting ACDS operation only in designated subbands; and requiring all digital-mode signals with bandwidths greater than 500 Hz to operate in these subbands as well; and
- Making clear that the ARRL favors the continued prohibition against encrypting amateur signals "for the purpose of obscuring their meaning."
In a related action, ARRL President Rick Roderick, K5UR, reactivated the board's dorman HF Band Planning Committee in order "to more effectively address HF digital technology issues." The six-member committee is chaired by ARRL First Vice President Greg Widins, K0GW.
