Default Rules changes for 60 meters

Just in case you didn't get this news directly, here is a bulletin from
ARRL HQ:

From ARRL Headquarters

Newington CT November 23, 2011
To all radio amateurs

SB QST ARL ARLB024
ARLB024 FCC Releases New Rules for 60 Meters

On November 18, the FCC released a Report and Order (R&O), defining
new rules for the 60 meter (5 MHz) band. These rules are in response
to a Petition for Rulemaking (PRM) filed by the ARRL more than five
years ago and a June 2010 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). In
the R&O, the FCC replaced one of the channels in the band, increased
the maximum authorized power amateur stations may transmit in this
band and authorized amateur stations to transmit three additional
emission designators in the five channels in the 5330.6-5406.4 kHz
band (60 meters).

The Amateur Radio Service in the United States has a secondary
allocation on 60 meters. Only those amateurs who hold General,
Advanced or Amateur Extra class licenses may operate on this band.
Amateur stations must not cause harmful interference to -- and must
accept interference from -- stations authorized by any
administration in the fixed service, as well as mobile (except
aeronautical mobile) stations authorized by the administrations of
other countries.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE CHANGES HAVE NOT YET TAKEN EFFECT. These new
rules will take effect 30 days after they are published in the
Federal Register. The ARRL will announce on its website when the
rules are published. Additional information can currently be found
on the web at,
