One point to bring up is the fact that they request the band and privileges to do research and to further understanding and techniques yet they want an exemption from something which they say is quite difficult. I would say that is what research is all about and they would want to solve that problem.
Also point out that high frequency communications research should be directed at low power communications. Any idiot can throw 100W amplifiers and get NLOS, but the true genius would be if the Hams can do the same thing with 100 mW. You should basically ask that they be reduced to 0.5 W in order to foster more research, since necessity is the mother of invention. With low power they will have to perfect their techniques and with 100 W they will just sit back and blast the spectrum. After all, they want to research and that is the basis of the whole proposal. Shoot that part down in flames by pointing out the inconsistencies of their request.
