630/2200m bands open!

The new 137 kHz & 472 kHz bands are open in less than a month -- and since it requires a 30-day wait after registering to use them...

The article mentions that whether or not you plan to transmit on these bands in the near future, filling out the registration form (a link to the web form is in the article) will reserve your ability (and that of other local hams) to use them in the future, theoretically preventing the possibility of any goofy Power Line Communications stuff from cropping up in your neighborhood, and lets the FCC know that you care.
