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.

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
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
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,
