Hey radio geeks..
I just found out that the FCC opened (in 2017) GMRS (like family band on steroids) to short duration digital transmissions such as GPS data coordinate xmmission.. which could be huge for rocketry (multi-mile range).. if they ever get around to dropping the meaningless license requirement:

I have also heard rumor that 900MHz ISM band (currently used by EggTimer, etc) might be "going away" for unlicensed use (as we are using it)..
Anyone else know more?
Is Bob McGuire back on here yet?
