ET-15-99 appears in the Federal Register: the comment period has officially opened.

– Posted in: 630 Meter General Topics, 630 Meters

While many of us have already filed our comments on the NPRM to create amateur bands in the US on 630-meters and 2200-meters, the official comment period opened today with the publication of the matter in the Federal Register .  What this means is that we now know a closing date for the first round of comments and the reply comments, August 31 and September 30, respectively.

This is very good news as we have all been wondering when we would start taking the next step.  It has surprisingly begun sooner than later.  So maybe we will get this finished before I have to renew my Part-5 experimental grant next August.
