New Rules for 5 MHz (60 Meters) To Go Into Effect March 5

On November 18, the FCC
<http://www.arrl.org/news/fcc-releases-new-rules-for-60-meters>released
a Report and Order
(<http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2011/db1118/FCC-11-171A1.pdf>R&O),
defining new rules for the 60 meter (5 MHz) band. These rules are in
response to a Petition for Rulemaking
(<http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/document/view?id=6518527442>PRM)
filed by the ARRL more than five years ago and a June 2010 Notice of
Proposed Rulemaking
(<http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-10-76A1.pdf>NPRM).
In the<https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2012/02/03>February
3 edition of the
<https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2012/02/03>Federal
Register, the FCC
<https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2012/02/03/2012-2477/amateur-radio-use-of-the-allocation-at-5-mhz>announced
that these new rules will go into effect on March 5, 2012.

In summarizing the new rules, the FCC explained that the new rules
amend the current rules to facilitate more efficient and effective
use by the Amateur Radio Service of five channels in the
5330.5-5406.4 kHz band (the 60 meter band): "Specifically, and
consistent with our proposals in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in
this proceeding, the Commission replaces one of the channels with a
less encumbered one, increases the maximum authorized power amateur
stations may transmit in this band and authorizes amateur stations to
transmit three additional emission designators. The Commission also
adopts an additional operational rule that prohibits the use of
automatically controlled digital stations and makes editorial
revisions to the relevant portions of the Table of Frequency
Allocations and our service rules."

The Amateur Radio Service in the United States has a secondary
allocation on 60 meters. Only those amateurs who hold General,
Advanced or Amateur Extra class licenses may operate on this band.
Amateur stations must not cause harmful interference to -- and must
accept interference from -- stations authorized by any administration
in the fixed service, as well as mobile (except aeronautical mobile)
stations authorized by the administrations of other countries.
