To all radio amateurs:

Deadline Extended to November 28, 2023 for 60-Meter Comments

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.

The ARRL strongly encourages all amateurs to submit comments expressing support to the FCC for the current 100 watt ERP power limit (instead of reducing the power limit to 15 watts 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 at https://www.arrl.org/60-meter-band.
