[aprssig] Radio Shack demise - Lets take back 11 meters!

You won't get ANY action on 11 meters from F.C.C. I have asked this same
question in the recent past direct. I was advised that I should feel free to
submit an RRM but that it would most likely be dismissed because of the
nature of the CB band and the fact that getting those frequencies back from
CBers would be essentially impossible.

It's a good idea but there are as many of them as there are of us, if not

Band Radio Service mean that the spectrum used in that service is magically
free of users?

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?
