But you are forgetting, if you don't use it you will loose it.  If we
just stop using our frequencies we will have nothing to fight with when
those outsiders do come knocking.  We should be using those frequencies
so that we can show that they are being used and that we need them.  By
not flying those bands only goes to show that we really didn't need
those allocations, anyway, and they WILL go to the highest bidder.
