NPR report on losing our 70cm Band

We’ve been talking about the current threat of losing part of our 70cm band to a new “First Responder” service that Congress is proposing.

National Public Radio has a really good report on the problem. You can listen to it at:

A number of us sent in letters to our Congressional Representatives protesting this. If you haven’t and want to, the information on how to do that is still on this website in “Previous Posts.”

While the space they want doesn’t remove the entire band, our worry is that if we relent now, there will be more space wanted later. Please do think about letting your congressman know you don’t like this idea.
