Some thoughts to your concerns...
1) Here in Maryland, I dont hear much at all. The only channel heavily
used is 19.
2) I guess I was thinking about just a couple of data channels
3) Is there any data stuff there already? (Its not approved)...
4) Despite my subject line, maybe I as thinking about just getting the FCC
to allow some data channels, remaining in the CB service?
I agree, it would be ugly if not impossible change hands.on users. But
"not lick'em, but 'join'em" and make some use of the spectrum.
