It would be interesting to assess the current
level of Ham use of this spectrum.  I am guessing
it is highly localized, specialized, and rare.

The FCC is chartered to allocate spectrum and
promulgate regulations that are in the best
interest of the majority of citizens.

Unless Hams can show evidence that the spectrum
represents a value to emergency communications,
technology experimentation, and hobby use we will
see it follow the unfortunate path of 220.
