New Band Plan Chart
« on: May 16, 2017, 05:16:02 PM »

Published over at the ARRL today: http://www.arrl.org/graphical-frequency-allocations  Good clean pdf's over there too.

The changes are interesting but very minor.  The new LF bands aren't yet legally available, but presumably will be so soon.  I like how the "center" and "dial" frequencies are now both given for 60m.

Because I'm worth it, I used the color laser printer at the office to print out on 11"x17". 

It's so big if I placed it in a window, my neighbors could read it.

This is the ham equivalent of placing shooting targets in your window? ;D

Nice chart, but the low frequency are still not accessible

Not that any of us likely has a transceiver capable on those new bands...

My Paragon that's been opened up should work on 630 meters, but where am I going to put the half wave dipole. Grin ;D

Perhaps alongside an alpine airstrip that doubles as a state camp ground with 3500 feet of flat, horizontal space?
