Actually, it was more of a reminder about the 11m band and the few times a
decade that I check it, it seems dead except for channel 19 and 9.  SO my
idea I guess was more along the lines of how can we use it (as emregecny
responders) more than we do now?  It would be neat to be able to use one
channel for local data... I guess that was my thinking.   So how to get
FCC approval?
