Have one single equipment authorization standard.
This isn't the 1920's...adopt one standard that all radio services' transmitters must meet for equipment authorization rather than the current haphazard hodge-podge arrangement. This will aid emergency managers is selecting equipment, foster MUCH greater competition among equipment manufacturers, and allow us to launch new telecommunications services faster.

Please do not impose equipment authorization on the Amateur Radio Service. We design and build our own radio transmitters and modify our transmitters. Ours is a hands-on technology service for technology self training and for developing new technologies. In my own case, I used my amateur radio background to invent and patent my wireless bus invention (U.S. Patent 6,771,935). Having the freedom to invent, design, and experiment are essential for producing new technologies. Other amateur radio operators have invented liquid flow capacitors, electrolytic antennas, satellite components, etc. Amateur radio inventors, technologists, students, and experimenters are a national economic resource that should be encouraged.
