Martin's call for more radio frequency spectrum for emergency responders came after Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Conrad Burns (R-Mont.) called for Congress to move forward on legislation that would free up radio spectrum by requiring television stations to switch from analog to digital broadcasts. A move to digital television (DTV) would free up spectrum in the upper 700-MHz radio frequency band for commercial and public safety uses. The FCC has said it would give 24 MHz of that spectrum to public safety users and auction off 60 MHz for commercial uses. /snip

I got an idea, why don't they just open it up to wisps all across the country, let us use ths spectrum for what we are now doing and then in the event of another disaster, there will already be gear in place to keep everyone going?
