Which I can't see happening for some time, as there are still TV
broadcast stations populating that band around the world. We in
eastern VK are limited to the top 2 MHz of the 6m band (52 - 54 MHz),
as well as a DX window between 50 and 50.3 MHz, due to a small number
of TV stations still occupying channel 0 (45 - 52 MHz).
