    Just to be fair, it's anyone's guess.

    IT will be localized users at first - but like with SSB, Channel 16 became, back when they used 23 channels - was the SSB "Go-To" call channel - so Your Mileage May Vary...

    We have been waiting for the new FM radios to hit the market, but nothing yet.

    Technically, the European versions of the AM/FM or AM/FM/SSB radios are not yet FCC Type Accepted for use in the US, and would need certification before use. But, that won't stop most people from using what they already have.

    Also, some were suggesting Ch-1 as the FM Call Channel.

    So all they'll probably do is put a sticker on the box or radio saying "FCC Type accepted"

    Ch1 FM call would be fitting.

    What is the call channel in Europe? Maybe we should use that.

    That’s channel 31 in Europe, but Americans by their nature are necessitated to be obstinate.

    Such an expletive was usually taken with comedic skepticism. "You numbah one" would also denote urination or your pencil lead size.

    If you run an Export like a 2950 nothing changes, you already have FM. What will change is once things are in production/delivery anyone can go buy a stock Cobra 29 and it will also have FM.
