Here is a strategy worth consideration by ALL hams everywhere in the 
country. Next time one of your local politicians holds a "town-hall 
meeting", get together with a few other hams, SWL's, AM broadcast radio 
listeners and any other concerned radio users in your area, and raise holy 
hell over the RFI issue and DEMAND that the FCC do its JOB enforcing laws 
and regulations already on the books. Demand also that manufacturers and 
importers of all types of gadgetry be required by federal law to meet 
certain emission standards and that those standards will be strictly 
enforced. Make enough noise for long enough, and someone will begin to take 
notice. This is an ENVIRONMETAL issue.

A few thousand highly motivated and highly vocal individuals nationwide this 
past summer had a tremendous impact, for better or for worse, regarding 
health insurance reform. Why can't we do a similar thing, and demand an end 
to illegal pollution of the airwaves?

Pass this on to all the hams you know and talk it up over the air... WATSA?

(And PLEASE, no highjacking this thread for off-topic, non-radio related 
comments or remarks!)
