We've got car-sized rovers on Mars roaming around, taking pictures, drilling in rocks, relaying data back through a satellite in orbit around another planet and nothing new was invented to accomplish that?
It seems it's no small feat for you to understand that pun.
We should celebrate with a small fete when it comes to him.
Who said it needs to be safe? Orbital bombardment. Ransom, etc. Then, all of a sudden, the world needs to get access to cheap materials in space for defense. Space economy established.
Nobel Prize please.
Amateur experimentation isn't limited to modulation experimentation. Usage experimentation is actually more common -combining different types of equipment, techniques, uses, etc.
No, but that sort of experimentation is open to many more amateurs when using open, non-proprietary technologies.
If the D-star repeater is on an amateur band, it is part of the problem. There's no experimentation with D-star. There's just paying for a hunk of proprietary equipment. But, hey, we need yet another repeater on 2m and 70cm. The ones already there are just so overloaded with traffic!
No, what we need is more free space on these bands for experimentation with digital and analog modes, including some wide-band modes. But for that you need to get rid of some of the bandwidth dedicated to unused repeaters.
This will affect the amateur HF bands, not the agency bands.
The proposal affects all amateur bands from my reading, not just HF. I really like this proposal. Someone needs to kick the ARRL in the pants.
