Frannie, it looks like we may have the Senator contact information
covered though I do not know f this contains all the staffer connections
we may need to know by name. Frannie, please look over our web resource
as stated below and let us know if this suffices or if we need more
information. Thanks to all who are helping on this legislative effort
for gaining unlicensed use of television channels. It is nice to be
doing the work that is the primary goal of our organization. It makes a
little of those tough times in setting this up almost worth while! :-)

Brian and others,
Go to the WISPA homepage and select your state from the State Government
Webpages dropdown menu. From your state webpage, you should be able to find
your Senator and Congressman contact information. We have tried to make it

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?
And we should call our reps and tell their staff member who takes

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.
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.
Exactly what channels are we talking here?
I hope that helps,
