• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

The IARU has already voiced its opposition to this proposal. Two meters is allocated primarily to the amateur service worldwide. Its loss would have far reaching impacts.

I think the ICAO will have a COW over this ! :eek:

They are still trying to get 8.33 KHz channels implemented world wide.

Implementing this would require a blessing from the ITU, and and worldwide consent by resetting this allocation at a WARC.

The WARC would have to set :
Emission standards, (AM vs FM vs SSB, vs pulse, or something else),
emission bandwidth,
channel spacing,
implementation start dates and deadlines,
and of course the "exceptions" that some administrations would want to protect some prexisting domestic services.

Remember that only 146-148 MHz is amateur exclusive, 144-146 MHz is already used as an LMR band in many parts of the world.
I don't think ICAO would want to get into another ITU WARC war over 144-146 MHz.

<I think someone at the QUAI d' Orsay has had too many Beignets:confused:>

It's UPS taking part of 220mhz all over again, possible loss of 144mhz-146mhz

If any of you are in France or know anyone there, it's time to start emailing politicians,

France proposes 144-146 MHz for Aeronautical Mobile Service | Southgate Amateur Radio News
Why E-mail politicians?!?!

Direct action is much better.

French Hams should borrow a page from the Gilet Juanes.

Organize the Gilet Orange! The Orangerie!

Have all the french hams get out their orange vests, and parade down the Champs Elysse!
I'm sure Macron and the Surete de RF would see that this Idea is unpopular, and drop this idea!

Liberte, fraternite, equalite, et RF!

Marchon au Citoyen!

Vite! Vite! L' orangerie!

You have that backwards. 144-146 is amateur exclusive.
ONLY IN ITU region 2 is 144-146 MHz amateur exclusive. (North and South America)

In ITU region 1, 144-146 MHz amateur is NOT exclusive, it is primary, shared with fixed and mobile secondary.
<<< Aero mobile is specifically prohibited>>>>> France is in ITU Region 1.

n ITU region 3, 144-146 MHz amateur is NOT exclusive, it is primary, shared with fixed and mobile secondary.

ITU R.217 allows specifically allows Aero mobile in China
