The NARCC Spectrum Management Committee (SMC) is looking for a few good men! We are presently examining the VHF and UHF bands trying to accommodate new technologies that don’t really fit anywhere right now.

If you have a desire to help shape the future band plans for the VHF and UHF bands please join us at the Spectrum Management Committee, or SMC for short. We can be found on the Yahoo Groups page, search for and you can get in on the action and help come up with a new VHF and UHF spectrum management band plan.

We want as many operator areas represented in the spectrum management planning process as possible, that means repeater owners/users; packet users; simplex users; satellite and weak-signal users, SSB and AM users, everyone who uses the VHF or UHF bands are encouraged to get involved in how your spectrum will be changed. And it will be changed!

Be part of the process instead of simply having to live with the results. We are moving ahead, and we want you to join us in this very important work. Please sign up for the narcc-spectrum yahoo group, and read some of the posts and the files.

Your voice should be heard, and we welcome all interested parties who have a desire to help us make sure everyone is represented.

Please contact the Chairman of the Spectrum Management Committee, Shorty K6JSI at if you would like to participate in the issues we are facing, and help with a solution.

Your opinion is important to our moving forward with the goal of helping to make a better amateur radio hobby, serving all of our needs. Please get involved and become part of the solution. Your voice counts, and we want to hear it.
