I try. No, I haven't considered that because the idea just occurred to me hours ago. Are you sure about that? Shouldn't I first, perhaps, make this a complete thought before I send it off to the FCC? What I have now is just a general idea with a dozen different variations on the theme I'm considering. If I don't clean this up first, discuss this with others to get some input, and so forth then I can just imagine the response I'd get... "The FCC declines the petition based on vagueness, the petition does not include enough detail for the FCC to act upon. The FCC also declines the petition on general principles as the electronic documents received included an animated GIF of a fat lady fainting. The FCC requests that the petitioner grow up a little." For such a petition to be successful there must be consideration of the "art of the possible" or whatever the lingo is. There has to be enough people on board first, there's a lot I can compromise on but a few I will not. I think it would be wise to think and discuss this some more, and it appears that the ARRL thinks similarly. Perhaps I can plant a seed in some minds here and see if it grows. There's still a lot of stamp collectors, a vocal minority, still bitter about previous restructuring. I think in a few more years as aged hams get buried with their licenses clenched in their fists that such an idea will go over more smoothly. I can wait.
