ARLB027 FCC Proposes Rule Changes in Response to ARRLs Symbol┬*Rate
Petition, Seeks Comment
The FCC has proposed to revise the Amateur Service Part 97 rules
in┬*response to the ARRLs so-called Symbol Rate Petition for Rule┬*Making
(RM-11708), filed in late 2013, and it has invited comments┬*on its
recommended changes. The Notice of Proposed Rule Making┬*(NPRM) in WT Docket
16-239, released on July 28, had been making the┬*rounds at the FCC since
May. ARRL had asked the FCC to change the┬*Part 97 rules to delete the
symbol rate limits in Part 97.307(f) and┬*replace it with a maximum
bandwidth for data emissions of 2.8 kHz on┬*amateur frequencies below 29.7
MHz.
The NPRM can be found on the web in PDF format
at┬*http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Rele...CC-16-96A1.pdf.
[W]e believe that the public interest may be served by revising the┬*Amateur
Service rules to eliminate the current baud rate limitations┬*for data
emissions, consistent with ARRLs Petition, to allow┬*Amateur Service
licensees to use modern digital emissions, thereby┬*furthering the purposes
of the Amateur Service and enhancing the┬*usefulness of the service, the FCC
said in its NPRM.
We do not, however, propose a bandwidth limitation for data┬*emissions in
the MF and HF bands to replace the baud rate┬*limitations, the NPRM
concluded, because the rules current┬*approach for limiting bandwidth use by
amateur stations using one of┬*the specified digital codes to encode the
signal being transmitted┬*appears sufficient to ensure that general access
to the band by┬*licensees in the Amateur Service does not become unduly
impaired.
Under the current rules, specified digital codes in Part 97 may be┬*used
with a symbol rate that does not exceed 300 baud for┬*frequencies below 28
MHz, with the exception of 60 meters, and 1200┬*baud in the 10 meter band.
The baud rate limits were adopted in┬*1980, when the FCC amended Part 97 to
specify ASCII as a permissible┬*digital code.
Comments in the proceeding will be due 60 days after the date that┬*the NPRM
appears in the Federal Register.

FCC Seeks Comments on Waiver Request from Expert Linears

ARLB028 FCC Seeks Comments on Waiver Request from Expert Linears
The FCC is inviting comments on a June 11 request from Expert┬*Linears
America LLC to waive Part 97.317(a)(2) of the Amateur┬*Service rules to
permit it to import, market, and use its model 1.3K┬*FA amplifier in the US.
The Texas company is seeking the waiver┬*pending resolution of its earlier
Petition for Rule Making┬*(RM-11767), which called on the Commission to
eliminate the 15 dB┬*gain limitation on Amateur Radio amplifiers altogether.
Expert said┬*the version of the model 1.3K FA amplifier it now imports has
been┬*modified to comply with current rules.
Expert seeks a waiver in order to be able to import the unmodified┬*version
of the Model 1.3K FA, which is capable of considerably more┬*than 15 dB
amplification, the FCC explained in a July 29 Public┬*Notice. Expert argues
that the public interest would be served by┬*permitting use of a
higher-powered amplifier, because it would┬*improve the communications
capabilities of amateurs using portable,┬*low-power transmitters by enabling
them to approach the maximum┬*legal power output. Expert assured the FCC
that its model 1.3K FA┬*has proprietary software to prevent it from
transmitting in the┬*26-28 MHz band, so it cannot be used in the Citizens
Radio Service.
The Public Notice can be found on the web in PDF format
at,┬*http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Rele...A-16-864A1.pdf.
On May 26, ARRL told the FCC that it strongly supports Experts┬*petition
seeking to eliminate the Amateur Service rule, spelled out┬*in Part
97.317(a)(2), that amateur amplifiers not be able to boost┬*the RF input
signal by more than 15 dB.┬*
Comments on Experts waiver request are due by August 29, reply┬*comments by
September 13.
