Re: [WISPA] We got the FCC's attention...Now it is time to tell Congress what you think...RIGHT NOW !!!!!!!! Instructions included in every detail

2005-10-12 Thread John Scrivner
I am copying Frannie so she can send this to us. I have heard people ask 
if they should contact multiple Senators. I will let Frannie answer this 
as she has more experience on the Hill than any of us. Frannie do you 
think you could go ahead and just send out the names and phone numbers 
of the rest of the states so we can call on them also? Let us know about 
how wise it is for us to call on multiple Senators. I am sure of few of 
us will call on several of them if you think it will help.

Thanks,
Scriv

You listed half of the numbers to contact the congressmen, can you 
list the rest instead of all of us emailing Frannie?  I need Michigan.

I'm a little confused John.

We are supposed to email Frannie our name business location and 
she's gonna send the letter?
Or we're supposed to print the letter and sign it and send it 
ourselves?




Email Frannie with your name/company name, city and state served. Her 
email address is [EMAIL PROTECTED] 
mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]. She will add your information to 
the letter. You do not need to print, sign or send anything other 
than your information via email. She will do the rest.




And we should call our reps and tell their staff member who takes 
calls for them why we should have unlicensed tv channels for 
broadband use.




The staffer for each Senator who is specifically involved in the 
telecommunications issues is listed in the message I sent you guys. 
This staffer is who you need to speak with. They will brief the 
senators on how to vote and will inform them of constituency 
interests like your calls. This is highly important for our efforts.



Exactly what channels are we talking here?




We are asking for use of any unused channels now. That is what 04-186 
is all about. In my local area this accounts for about 300 Mhz of 
available spectrum!  We are also asking for a block of channels (some 
are saying channels 2 through 4) which will become broadband 
unlicensed channels for good after the digital television  transition 
is complete in 2008. This will essentially become a WISP band.

I hope that helps,
Scriv

Just my 2 cents

Channels 2 thru 4 IMHO will be a nightmare.  We have public safety 
agencies fighting skip (the ability of low band signals to travel 
hundreds of miles using low power) just below Channel 2 during the 
summer months.  If we wind up with these we will surely have 
interference issues with each other as well as other lower frequency 
issues that are present with this band.


I really think we need something in the 175-600 Mhz. range.  Something 
that will keep most signals in the same area and not bounce them to 
the next state certain times of the year.

Bob makes an excellent point, these channels may not provide 
us with reliable media.  How do we address these issues?  Or 
do we hope that the FCC will give us some spectrum in the 175-
600 Mhz region of the spectrum.

Does this mean the real frequencies we need are still 2-4 
years or more away?  Just a question?
