    From ARRL de WD1CKS@VERT/WLARB to QST on Mon Oct 30 17:34:07 2023

    The deadline to file comments on the 60-meter band proposal has been extended by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to November 28, 2023. Replies to comments will be due December 28, 2023. The public comment period was originally to close October 30, 2023.

    ARRL˙ The National Association for Amateur Radio¨[1] strongly encourages all amateurs to submit comments expressing support to the FCC for the current 100 W ERP power limit (instead of reducing the power limit to 15 W EIRP) and continuing secondary access to the current channels.

    ARRL has assembled a web page with instructions on how to submit your comments, as well as background information on the issue:˙www.arrl.org/60-meter-band[2].˙
