May not be true. The ARRL hasn't been on the FCC's "I love you" list for
quite some time.
You have until 12 midnight today to make comments. Help shape the future
of the Amateur Radio Service. The comments don't have to be rocket
science stuff.
Go here:

Put in either RM-11305 or RM-11306 or both(one at a time), Fill in the
name and address stuff, go to the bottom and either send comments in or
type a comment in the space provided.
