IS 1.5MHz wide DATV an acceptable use of 50MHz
Yes

No

RSGB Nov 2014 RadCom page 18: I though it was a joke - but no - a serious proposal (and test details) of 1.5MHz wide TV on 6m from G8ADM: "as these bands sometimes have little use the occasional use of ATV is unlikely to cause problems" and " Only the top 1.5MHz of the (6m) band is used, leaving the bottom 500kHz completely free for SSB DX and beacon use" !!! q: DOES THE RSGB BOTHER TO VET TECHNICAL STUFF THESE DAYS?? The notes seem technically unsound as the spectrum display seems to show out out band emissions and that's presumeably BEFORE any TX chain artifacts.
This follows hot on the heels of proposals for high power (amateur) radar at the bottom end of the band. WTF? PLEASE LET THE RSGB KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS;-)
