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:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • 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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Sponsor a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Electromagnetic Pulse Attacks and Networks

    The Bureau should sponsor the development of an FCC Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on protecting communications networks and equipment from electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks and solar storm events. These attacks and events can disable our communications infrastructure. Donald Schellhardt and I petitioned for this in dockets RM-5528 and RM-10330. The Commission needs to address these very serious threats to America's infrastructure. For a clear view of this, read the new New York Times best selling novel: One Second After, which is now available in paperback.

      • Creat an Emergency Radio Service comprised of licensees/permittees across all radio services...

        REASONS AND BASES FOR NEW EMERGENCY RADIO SERVICE

        1. In Public Notice DA 09-2259, the Commission made the following statement: "While the value of the amateur service to the public as a voluntary noncommercial communications service, particularly with respect to providing emergency communications, is one of the underlying principles of the amateur service, the amateur service is not an emergency radio service [emphasis added]."
        2. No Emergency Radio Service exists in the Commission's Rules and Regulations.
        3. In its final report, entitled, “The 9/11 Commission Report,” the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks on the United States (2004, 283) found that:
