  2. Add debt collectors to do not call rules.

    I have gotten several calls over the last few years from bedt collectors for people I don't know. They continue to call even after I tell them to stop calling. One called me five times in six minutes. Most of them have violated Federal and State laws in some way. I try to file complaints and get the run around. the FCC is part of the debt collection law right?. If a complaint is filed in the wrong place how about it being forwarded to the correct place even if it is with another agency.

  3. FCC Lighten up

    Filtering shows we watch every day so there is no swearing or any bad content in it. If you look at japan's shows in there original language with English sub titles compared to American dubbed versions they tell almost completely different stories. Parents should control if they allow their kid to watch shows with swearing violence and nudity. I do believe you should just make it so there can't be a certain amount of all that.

  4. Enforce 27 Mhz CB Radio regulations

    Many of the comments listed here regarding CB radios could be taken care of if the FCC would just enforce the existing regulations.
    Some that are ignored frequently -
    4 watt maximum power output. You do realize that anyone can walk in off the street to just about any CB shop and buy a 1000 watt 'kicker'?
    No tampering with CB radio internals - ignored by every CB shop in the country
    CB shops advertising their services every 5 minutes on channel 19? Also banned by regulations
    Foul-mouthed trash talking? Banned by regulations already
    Long-winded preachers who can't get air…

  5. Prepare for the jury trial in (5:09-cv-05151) because of pending motion to add the FCC.

    The wire communications are not being regulated as is required by the Communications Act and lets quit calling the evolution of the telegraph the Internet to simply sell ***********.

  6. Drop the draconian, Cold War restrictions on HF broadcast stations

    The hoary, unenforced and inefficient rules in 73.788(a) through (d) limit innovation and raise barriers to entry. Drop the excessive minimum power rules and the command-and-control restrictions on content and audience.

  8. Stop Regulating Content

    The FCC is not allowed to regulate content of programming. So stop it! It's a waste of time, and it's frightening in it's implications!

  9. How did Apple get so much Control, to restrict Flash based Technologies over 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 am…

  11. create a wiki style rules site with examples and clarification editing by non-FCC employees

    This would be monitored by the FCC for clarification but created by people who use the rules everyday so its in plain English. It wouldn't be official but could point to the official rules for compliance reasons.

  12. add a simple API to access the FCC database so custom applications can be written easily

    This would allow people to create more useful websites and services that alert engineers when actions are taking place in specific areas or with their filings. Reducing the need for the daily digest and requirements to download a new FCC database every day to keep current. Saves bandwidth on both ends and updates are faster.

  13. Stop TV censorship.

    Why is America one of the few western Countries that censors so much of it's broadcast media? I feel that if censorship was stopped or restricted then the FCC will have more resources available to peruse better opportunities.

  14. allow low power FM radio stations

    LPFM is the future of radio, and it is unconstitutional to restrict them (refer to the right of speech)

  15. CB'ers should be charged for a license like ham radio operators and other radio services.

    If the CB operators were licensed and break the existing rules then the FCC could impose a fine on them. The FCC licensed CB operator would have their address on file for said license. A good way to enforce and gain revenue.

  16. Produce a consolidated set of rules and regs in plain language accessible on the web for all service

    Many operators, business owners and interested public find the rules and regs too complicated to be easily understood. A 'plain language' set of rules and regs, consolidated to include all of the services, would provide a great deal of information for 'non-engineering' personnel, business owners, etc. An informational website could provide this information to the public in an easy to understand format.

  17. Get rid of rules that cannot be enforced such as the GMRS license requirement.

    Stores like Wal-Mart sell bubble-pack GMRS radios by the hundreds and the public freely uses them without even knowing that a license is required to operate them. Very few people bother to buy the license and no one in the FCC seems to care. It's time to stop this foolishness and just do away with the license requirment.

  19. Shut down "cb shops"

    Here in Texas there are cb shops all over Dallas and Fort Worth, even one in Ennis, that do nothing but "peak and tune" type accepted cb radios and manufacture linear amplifiers. These devices, in addition to being illegal per FCC rules, also produce spread spectrum interference with other services and is a annoyance to those of us who have to pay to be interfered with.
