Re: "RTTY and Data" band plans ?

Andrew O'Brien

Thanks Tom and Ralph.  Yes, I agree I would need to make sure I am not out of band with my signal.  I don't intend to drop that far down.  However, it has occurred to me that I might sneak below 14065 to operate some digital modes including FT8  IF I had a 'sked" with someone, just to get away from the maddening crowd.  Just for a few minutes. Never on a weekend unless on a WARC band.

Sure but just no one does unless perhaps a sked. Especially if being
polite and using narrow modes. Would think random CQs down there would
not bear much fruit. Per the FCC regs it is after all the "data subband."
