Subject: RE: High power 2.4 GHz rules change
> The proposed change pertains to HAM Spread Spectrum above 225 MHz, and the
> power limit for ham SS under §97.311 is 100 watts, not 1000 watts. The
> proposal to eliminate the APC requirement in §97.311(d) was filed with the
> FCC by the ARRL a few months ago.
> APC is not too practical in ham environment and really has been a
