I don't like this anymore than you do. *But Brian said he read it, *and I
believe what he stated below. And others here have said similar things
about this.

Maybe we're occupying too much bandwidth here on the Topband reflector! ;-)

I read their experiment.  They will transmit only a CW (unmodulated) signal
for the minimum time needed to complete a field strength reading.  The only
frequency where they will run 1000W "radiated" is 1710kHz.  On other freqs
they plan to run 100W "radiated" & try to avoid interfering with us.

Well they are actually licensed to transmit between 1710 and 1900 kHz . . .

And what is worrying is the licence also states: "the occupied bandwidth of
the emission shall not
extend beyond the band limits set forth above" . . . which sounds like it
could be a very wideband transmission indeed !

In terms of shutting down if they cause interference, I bet they mean to
Shipping and Marine traffic, which still uses these frequencies in most of
the world (including Britain) . . . I doubt if they're bothered if they
cause interference to Amateur stations.

So personally I'm rather worried about this.
