If you want it to stop, write ARRL and tell them to make it stop.
So, I went to the FCC Web site linked in the first post and got the petition.
They properly used "formally."
Well, in fairness, the previous thread didn't have the actual petition.
I blame my glasses and bad typing
I've expressed my views on this --in person-- to my Division Director.
The ARRL made clear it's intentions on this a long time ago; the continuing chatter about it on this and other on-line forums is useless, and inevitably degenerates into ARRL-bashing and name-calling -- which, I'd guess, is why the moderators locked the earlier thread on this subject.
Rather than continuing to beat this dead horse on line, wait for the NPR --if there ever is one-- and file comments with the FCC.
Debating the merits -- or lack there0f-- here is a waste of time.
I don't disagree. But as long as the League pushes this issue at the Commission, the people who have positions on it (both pro and con) are going to continue to push it (or against it) until it passes or goes away. The only way to make it stop is to get ARRL to stop pushing it in the first place.
I think the only proper response for me in this thread is to head for the shack, turn on the lights, turn on the rig and GET ON THE AIR.
See ya later.....
The way to influence ARRL is to make your views known to your Division Director -- his/her contact information is on the ARRL web site and in every issue of QST.
The way to influence the FCC is to file comments if and when an NPRM is issued.
Neither is influenced by arguments in on-line forums.
I think this is the key. An NPRM may never be issued, the FCC may decide to not do anything with the petition. That is the outcome with many petitions received by the FCC.
Perhaps not. Then again, if you don't enjoy lively discussion, this probably isn't the place for you.
