It's not part of the US band allocation for ham. 70Mhz is VHF broadcast TV here...

Well, that shouldn't be an issue before too long -- are they going to open up the 4m band to ham radio when they take down broadcast analog? I know there's been mention that the frequencies will be auctioned off to wireless companies' highest bidder.

Anything is possible. Usually they try to keep close to ITU conventions. What I'd really like to see in the US is a license-free data band that allows interconnections to the internet.

A la packet radio, except no HAM license required? That'd be interesting...but I could see a lot of interest groups petitioning that -- it'd be hard to track goings-on with possible encrypted radio-based network access. It'd be nice, though, to not have to use a satellite connection at home, for non-dialup Internet.
