My idea is...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Why does Apple have so much Control over how we use the Internet?

    - Apple has control over how, and in what way we use our Internet! I have comcast cable currently, as my ISP, that I pay good money for. Apple has no rights, to control the way I access my comcast Internet! Apple will not allow many formats, such as Flash, that are what make the Internet great! When you buy an iPad, or iPhone, from Apple, their should be no restrictions! Especially, if we are paying our Internet Service Providers. We all pay good money for our Internet Experience, and these stupid restrictions violate our Freedom of Communication! If I…

  2. Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.

    Media bureau has so many initiatives in the works that few get completed. AM auction 84 has been pending for 6 years. The technology has become almost obsolete in that time. FM Translator auction 83 has been pending for 7 years without even a settlement window. An LPFM window cannot reasonably be opened until the large number of translator applications is settled. How can licensees serve the public interest if they cannot egt a license granted for the greater part of a decade. Pick one...finish it...then move on.

  5. Make amateur radio licenses valid for life as we did with commercial operator licenses.

    Issue NPRM to amend Part 97 to make amateur radio licenses valid for the operator's lifetime unless suspended or revoked. Make rule effective retroactive by two years to include in-grace-period expired licensees (who by rule would be renewed/reinstated).

  6. Direct Bureaus to use "grant stamp" to approve unopposed, noncontroversial requests.

    Approving an unopposed, noncontroverial request within existing precedent (such as for a waiver or extension) by stamping it "granted" with a signature by an authorized official saves staff time in drafting orders. Some Bureaus vary even by division in the use of this technique.

  7. Accepted broadcast applications concurrently in 30 day petition to deny window. Grant thereafter.

    Eliminate broadcast backlog by concurrently placing applications which are accepted for filing into the 30-day petition to deny window. If nobody objects to the grant of the application, it is immediately granted.
