License for 2-way radio supporting both GMRS/FRS??? by thomas

Is that digital sounding chirping on the new 5MHz freqs the primaryuser? by Robert Casey
Sometimes I hear a piccalo-rtty-ish digital signal on one or more of our new 5Mhz frequencies. Is that the primary user of these freqs trying to use their allocations and hams clogging the channel? Or is it from outside the USA? The signal strength is weak, so maybe it is from region 1 or 3.

40 meters fixed, sort of by Dan/W4NTI
Will all the hubub about dropping CW. The change in six years on 40 meters will be very important to ham radio. We in region 2 (North/South America) stay the same. BUT Region 1 and 3 moves the broadcast crap above 7200. AND Europe gets another 100 kc. From 7.0 to 7.2. About time. Dan/W4NTI
