    Close down the problem makers with high fines and beefed up enforcement, too much interference with TV/Cable systems.

    Comments about changes to the GMRS systems has been mentioned, the elimination of the fees/elimination of requirements has some pratical use.

    We already hve RACES (Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service) but we should revisit these rules and make them revelent to the situation at hand. RACES rules were written during the cold war and their application in our modern situation is not revelent. Sit down and re write the RACES rules so local offices of emergency management/DHS can understand their application and role in an emergency.

    The employer waiver situation could be handled under this rule section, extra frequencies and/or MARS-DOD could be included, commercial freq rules and other radio service rules in emergency operation clarified and spelled out.

    I propose that the 27 MHZ Class D CB be phased out with a sunset period over 10 years, with no new units allowed sold and the old units could be repaired but with no new units entering service, the phaseout of the old units would allow for the migration of the users of this service to the GMRS/FRS 460MHZ which could be enlarged with more channels due to narrowband technology units and/or refarming. The plus to this is that this would eliminate or reduce 27 MHZ compliants and move Citizens Band to a spectrum more conducive to local use.

    Elimination of licensing in the GMRS except for repeater systems who could block by technology who could use the repeater. Rules revisiting in the GMRS could include automatic id by encoding S/N of radio, limitation of RF to 25 Watts, elimination of the distance rule since repeaters should allowed to be linked, scrambling rules introduced, FRS/GMRS merged into one service, etc.

    At the end of the 10 yrs, the elimination of the migration would be almost complete and the Class D usage could be closed out.

    The Enforcement Bureau has offices outside the Metropolitan DC area only with the FCC and these offices need to be reduced in area and have more personnel to respond to the challenge of meeting with the public and being in the public eye such as speaking to groups on technology, availability of government expertise in times of Emergency and and creating an image in the public that the FCC has a local office, not just a presence in Washington, DC.

    Enforcement needs to be stepped up with a local office equiped to respond and turn around on compliants within a reasonable time. Public Safety/Industrial/Commercial users need their interference problems resolved with the firm hand of the FCC. Spectrum issues need to be handled promptly and resolved quickly as to allow the entity using the spectrum to be able to do so without delay.

    NOVs and NALs could be issued for deterents and information dissimnated quickly to maintain spectrum discipline.

    Each office should have at three to five agents covering no more than 2 states at the most and should devote a portion of their time attending trade shows where FCC involvement would benefit the public and industry, speaking to public groups and presentations to local government and industry.

    By classifying each set of call letters in a single subset for a single use would be great for business services, easier to see if a company is licensed for a particular frequency or subset. Individual Callsigns in the broadcast area however denote a location and Amateur Callsigns designate a personal operator but one license for nationwide business use would simplify matters.

    GMRS users are a special case and the rules for personal radio use need to be revisited to reflect the realities of the modern world, the rules for each service both busines and personal need to be revisited in due time to keep the rules revelant for a changing world situation.

    By requiring industry expertise is a step in the right direction but we must not get hung up on getting a bias in the board toward or against a particular service or industry regulated by the FCC. Our future prosperity depends upon our communications industries being leading edge and our regulatory board should reflect that directive.

    FCC and NTIA should have merged functions as to prevent duplication of efforts in communications.
