Roger, 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! ;-) 73, Mike www.w0btu.com On Feb 13, 2018 3:15 PM, "Brian Pease" <bpea...@myfairpoint.net> wrote: 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.

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.
