If we do not act right now to get Congress to pass a bill that tells the FCC to pass 04-186 then this debate means nothing. The bill I am asking for support on is the best case scenario I could get us and includes unlicensed access to ALL THE TELEVISION CHANNELS IN THE UNITED STATES NOT BEING USED.. It is not perfect legislation but a consensus among several groups and the Hill rarely is perfect. If you guys want to debate it then just do nothing because in 48 hours any chance we have to get ANY television channels in the United States will be gone for quite possibly years to come. This is the time to act. We do not have enough clout to rewrite Congressional policy in 1 day and try to get the Hill to change their language. We either all do what I am asking or you live with the spectrum you have and start saving your millions for that auction that will happen before long. It will be the one where all the Cellcos buy all the sub 1 Ghz channel space and put you all out of business.

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?

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
unlicensed channels for good after the digital television
is complete in 2008. This will essentially become a WISP
I hope that helps,

Just my 2 cents

Channels 2 thru 4 IMHO will be a nightmare. We have public
agencies fighting "skip" (the ability of low band signals to
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
issues that are present with this band.

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