concerns me deeply. Currently, 40M narrow band modes are used from 7,000
KHz to 7,125 KHz. The proposal is to cut this down to a 40 KHz section
from 7,000 KHz to 7,040 KHz. Please get involved by voicing your
opinion! Please share this information with all your amateur radio
friends ASAP! Very 73 de KU4GW</font></font></font>
