Hmm, perhaps the FCC is gearing up for this already with some of its latest
"The FCC adopted a technical change to specify that the mean power of
any spurious emission from a new amateur station transmitter or
amplifier operating below 30 MHz be at least 43 dB below the mean
power of the fundamental emission." (The old limit was 40 dB I believe)
I didn't see if it affects QRP operation also. As I recall, it only had a
30 dB limit, but maybe they are clamping down on 'spurious emissions' in
The above was from the ARRL today. See the entire changes at:
