REC files FCC petition to address NCE access for smaller communities through reverse "Raleigh" waivers.

REC Networks has filed a Petition for Rulemaking, or in the alternate, Petition for Declaratory Ruling with the Federal Communications Commission to address the issue of smaller communities being denied their first broadcast station because of lack of availability caused by higher powered stations centered around larger urbanized areas.

REC/KU3N 8 meter band FAQ

Greetings from Riverton.  

I have been reviewing the various articles, Facebook posts and yes, even QRZ.com for discussion on the 8-meter proposal.  Now with that said, here's some answers to some questions, comments and concerns made in the various channels...

Rant from Riverton: Why didn't REC change to a rainbow logo for Pride Month?

This is a difficult personal blog for me to write, but I do feel that it is worth an explanation.  Today’s REC is about diversity.  We even have the root word “diverse” in our current slogan “a leading advocate for a diverse dial.”  When you visit REC’s website or call up by phone, you hear that slogan.

FEMA schedules next EAS National Test for August 7 and it will be entirely over the air.

Details are starting to come in about the next national EAS Test will be held on August 7 (backup, August 21) at 2:20PM EDT.

This test will be different than previous tests as IPAWS will not be used. The tests will originate from the Primary Entry Point (PEP) stations. This test will focus on over-the-air reception of alerts in the event that the internet is not available. This test will use the all-zeros (000000) FIPS code.

Video: A Potential Amateur Radio Allocation At 8 Meters?

Michelle Bradley, KU3N on behalf of REC Networks has filed a Petition for Rulemaking with the FCC to open an inquiry to request a new amateur radio allocation in the 8 meter band at 40.51 to 40.70 MHz.

This spectrum was recently awarded to amateurs in Ireland and several Region 1 nations currently have allocations or specially authorized beacons in this band.

See the REC filing on our filings page: https://recnet.com/filings

Once an RM number is assigned (if they assign one), then comments will be accepted for 30 days.

This proposal will get pushback from the NTIA. I expect this, but if we can get an understanding on this band similar to like what we have on 60 meters, we have an opportunity for a new band for transatlantic digital modes between 10 and 6 meters.
