FCC Grants Waiver on TDMA
From the That Took A Long Time department, the FCC granted a waiver requested by the ARRL that clarifies the rules concerning the use of TDMA (i.e., MOTOTRBO or DMR) on the ham bands. I posted on this topic way back in March 2011, so refer to that article for the background. Update: ARRL article posted here.
I was surprised to find that the FCC quoted my comments that I filed on this proceeding:
Some commenters state the proposed rule change “removes an ambiguity in Part 97 concerning the use of single slot TDMA technology” and it “enable[s] and encourage[s] the adoption of spectrally efficient narrowband technology.” Comments of Robert Witte at 1.
OK, fine, it was buried in the footnotes but I appreciate the mention. I can now die in peace knowing that my name is in the FCC record and not associated with a rules violation
Thanks to Jeff K0RM, for pointing this out.

What ever happened to the proposal where the FCC was considering to let people who let their ham tickets expire, get reinstated.
I think a ham in Alaska presented it months back, now I don’t hear about anymore. Is it still under consideration?
