I'm wondering if we can ask the ARRL for clarification. I don't think the 3
Khz mentioned in the request is sigificant, since I think that a workable
standard should be scalable and flexible enough to make use of the available
bandwidth whether it is 300 Hz or 3 Khz.

What I'm concerned about is whether the ARRL is interested in technically
sophisticated and efficient protocols, or if they have a more pragmatic
interest in protocols that are likely to be widely available and in common
use (e.g. PSK31). There is probably a middle ground out there, but I can't
discern the goal from the request from ARRL.
