Which of the following is a result of the fact that the Amateur Radio Service is secondary in all or portions of some amateur bands (such as portions of the 70 cm band)?

  1. U.S. amateurs may find non-amateur stations in those portions, and must avoid interfering with them
  2. U.S. amateurs must give foreign amateur stations priority in those portions
  3. International communications are not permitted in those portions
  4. Digital transmissions are not permitted in those portions


Why should you not set your transmit frequency to be exactly at the edge of an amateur band or sub-band?

  1. To allow for calibration error in the transmitter frequency display
  2. So that modulation sidebands do not extend beyond the band edge
  3. To allow for transmitter frequency drift
