Clause 71 in the Report and Order says that the changes go into effect 30
days after publication of the Report and Order in the Federal Register.  I
have not seen such yet but duties have had my attention divided as of late.

As such the changes are not immediately in force quite just yet.

Thanks for posting this Trevor!  In addition to rebroadcast of ISS,
this finally makes Kenwood "SkyCommand" legal in the U.S.

I note the document indicates "Adopted:  October 4, 2006".  Am I to
understand that this means these amendments to Part 97 are now in
effect, or is there a further step required by the FCC?
