In reply to G8ADD:
For some current ideas on use, but still under discussion, try:
I find the suggested utilisation plan totally bizarre. First it introduces AM as a prospective mode and then suggests a single SSB channel in a 4kHz segment. Talk about self-limitation! If we are allocated, say 5.4035MHz to 5.4065MHz, why can’t we operate USB on 5.4035MHz as we do at present and 5.4065MHz as well? The utilisation plan specifically states USB dial frequency, not frequency band limits. I hear plenty of QSOs in the SSB section of 40m running quite nicely at 3kHz spacing.
As for the QRM pests, they will find you wherever you are. Who is to say that SOTA is the only operation on 5MHz that suffers that way?

P.S. AM - presumably for pre-G4 Class A licensees hankering after the good old days. I see the site is run by one such…
