From the ARRL web site dated, 09/01/2015:

The ARRL has told the FCC that Amateur Radio operation in the new 135.7-137.8 kHz (2200 meters) and 472-479 kHz (630 meters) bands should be as unfettered as possible from a regulatory standpoint. The League spelled out its case August 31 in detailed comments (see PDF) that argue in favor of flexible FCC Part 97 regulations in light of the exceptionally low interference potential to unlicensed power line carrier (PLC) systems that utilities use to manage the power grid....

...“The allocation of the 2200 meter band, together with the proposal to adopt flexible rules for the use of that first LF allocation, and the proposal to allocate the 630 meter band for amateur use, when implemented, will complete at least a basic complement of Amateur Radio allocations in all portions of the radio spectrum domestically,” the ARRL told the FCC...

...The ARRL also commented on the FCC’s proposal to amend its Part 80 rules to permanently authorize radio buoy operations on the “open sea” under a ship station license in the 1900-2000 kHz band, which the Commission recently elevated to primary for Amateur Radio...

...“Should the Commission proceed with its proposal…to make the 1900-2000 kHz band available to commercial fishing vessels for use by radio buoys on the open sea and to include them in the equipment authorized as part of a ship station license, it should not do so by means of a primary allocation for these devices in ITU Regions 2 and 3 as proposed,” the League said...
