Amateur radio operators now need to join the fight and let their elected representatives know about their opposition to H.R. 607. This bill in congress will allow the FCC to auction off a portion of the 420-440MHz amateur radio band, limiting our ability to effectively communicate in emergency and health and welfare situations.
Amateur radio emergency communications rely heavily on our limited frequency allocations in the VHF and UHF radio bands. The loss of access to the 420-440 MHz spectrum would make it very difficult for us to maintain this capability and would mean we could no longer use numerous systems that have been constructed on our own time and at personal expense to provide this important communications support.
