ROS digital mode now legal in USA

José Alberto Nieto Ros, the developer of the new ROS digital mode, has submitted the technical specification of the mode to the FCC, as a result of which they conclude that ROS can not be viewed as Spread Spectrum and would be encompassed within the section 97.309 (RTTY and data emissions codes).

Now, all that needs to be resolved is the issue of where to use it without causing complaints from users of existing nets and other modes. Anyone with experience of getting quarts into pint pots please apply now.

uggh. My earlier negative blog comment on this matter remains.

My fantasy scenario... the FCC allows the amateur bands to fall into anarchy then ban amateur radio in the USA because of the induced mayhem.

Lots of spectrum immediately available to commercial interests.

My fantasy only.

According to the technical paper and the audio file attached, we conclude that ROS can not be viewed as Spread Spectrum and it would be encompassed within the section 97.309 (RTTY and data emissions codes).

Nobody forces him tp use ROS.
