I ditto those statements entirely... Also would any frequency be taken from 
other hams (most likely) or would an additional frequency spectrum be 
allocated... Frankly Elitist suggestions like this make me think of Big 
Brother... Do you really want to make hams go through more of the BS the 
posting daily on how and what you can do on the amateur bands?


Eric...the "instant" things start "being reserved" for a group of 
amateurs...for any reason other then by regulatory action...we have started 
down a very slippery slope that has no real end.

The FCC can and does "set aside" frequencies in serious emergencies for 
special communications and then they end it...the frequencies belong to The 
Republic.  To be blunt..the way AMSAT has mishandled the amateur satellite 
acquisition system since the ramp up to AO40 would in fact tell me that they 
shouldnt be trusted with just about anything much less who gets on the bird.
