however, many of us have been operating under the reading that was
supplied by the arrl based on the original report and order, the
discussion of which obviously provides more insight into the intention of
the rules than the actual wording. much like interpreting the
constitution based on the intent and discussions in other papers of the
time. asking directly for a ruling has been known to generate an
unexpected result and could very well upset the applecart if the person
issuing the ruling happens to have a different agenda or doesn't
completely research the history and other interpretations that have been
done over the years.
so i would say, if its so easy and means so much to you to want to force
multi ops to use a more stringent interpretation that excludes us from
bringing in lower class licensees to experience hf operation, then ask...
but if you get the ruling that you want, expect that there will be many
multi ops who will forever remember n5nj and his ruling.
