Cwix writes "A new law proposed in Belarus would require all net users and online publications to register with the state: 'Belarus' authoritarian leader is promising to toughen regulation of the Internet and its users in an apparent effort to exert control over the last fully free medium in the former Soviet state. He told journalists that a new Internet bill, proposed Tuesday, would require the registration and identification of all online publications and of each Web user, including visitors to Internet cafes. Web service providers would have to report this information to police, courts, and special services.'"

So what will the power level to digital stations be between February and June? AFAIK, now all-digital stations are only broadcasting at 60(?)% of power so as to not interfere with analog transmissions in nearby ranges. Does this bill mean digital stations will be at 100% in June only, or in February, or they will trickle in turn up the power?
