Changes in 60m band for US

Off topic yes but good to know...

On November 18, 2011 the FCC published its approval of changes to the US 60 meter band.

Summary:

(1) Use of the existing 5366.5 kHz (carrier) is removed, replaced by 5357.0 kHz (carrier).

(2) Maximum ERP raised from 50 to 100 watts PEP.

(3) Three emission modes (CW, RTTY, Data) are authorized in addition to the existing USB mode.

Changes go into effect 30 days after publication in the Federal Register.
