Thank you for noting the availability of the 2015 committee reports at
These have much more information than the abbreviated comments in the BOD
The Bandplanning committee for instance has specifics as to extending the 80M

Remember the ARRL prides itself as a representative democracy, to wit;
"ARRL is a representative democracy — its members control its policies through
the power of the ballot. "
So be informed, express your opinions and be heard.
