Dont think there is enough weight behind it anymore to make a difference, I know they said they would turn a blind eye to its use untill it goes through but that was probably just an excuse to chuck it on the back burner again! and hope it goes away, like most just keep using it as we always have and be carefull not to inflict any problems on others at the same time, these days most rigs are built better with good filtering also TVs and emergancy services have gone digital which helps a great deal but I still run with a decent independant low pass filter in line just in case, they dont have the money to debate this with all the other problems that we have in this country so I cant see it ever happening unless it becomes popular enough to be financialy self supporting with the backing of large scale manufacturing outlets and once again in these days of easy and free pc based coms thats never going to happen either. They honestly dont care as we are small fish in a big pond so :pirate2: it is.

I got that banner on my desktop as a reminder and will certainly be active on that day. I could use my HF but I think I'll take the dust cover off the 148 GTLDX and get some boots on, it'll feel like yesteryear once more.
Looking forward to a good few contacts. 73's to all from Phil 163CT047. Why not email ofcom and ask if there is a date set for AM SSB to become legal sometime soon ? infact everyone should do it to show there is still interest in having that as an option. :thumb:
