    Very nicely put, and others here should read it! Short and to the point! (a quality I've never been good-at.) Thank you for writing!

    I have not noticed any reference to C Band dreamers. People who have KU and want to eventually advance to C Band. Where do the letter campaign stand in those cases?

    Just write the FCC as a concerned cititzen...knowing that C-band is at risk, and that you use "satellite" TV now in the capacity of FTA! And, that you are concerned for your local broadcasters who use it to pick up many of their programs! You're just as eligible for your voice as anyone else.

    Referring to Document 18-122
    I have been using C Band Satellite since 1990. If I could not receive Free to Air Stations on C Band, it would put my TV viewing back to 1950s. Can not pick up many Local Stations, & Cable Companies are a RIP off because the Stations I watch are Free to Air and they charge for these Channels. 5G signals should not cause inference with Broadcasting C Band Signals. I have already told Sprint ( my cellphone provider), to perfect the LTE Signal, my LTE phone stays connected to 3G more than LTE. Why in the world go to 5g, if phones connections will be reduced to 3G Service?
    Hope the FCC does not destroy TV viewing for people like me.
    Thank for listening, James Clardy, West Point Ms 39773

    Did you upload it officially to the public comments page for all of the FCC and public to see?
    If not, please do! If you need assistance, let me or any other member who has filed know and we'll surely help.
    By the way, it takes usually one business day for the filings to be updated on the web, so be patient in looking for yours if you've uploaded over the weekend.

    Letters are looking good, friends. I believe they need to be in by Wednesday to the FCC...so please, if you are concerned about your C-band hobby or entertainment delivered to you by c-band, write a quick note to the FCC on their "Express File" page if you don't want to upload a document (copy and paste will work there) and show that our members care about C-band. the more voices, the better. Thanks to those who have already written, your letters are GREAT examples of what to say.

    I object of the repurposing of the 3.7-4.2 GHz band. Although I'm only a hobbyist, I understand that C-Band is an important, reliable and a cost effective way to mass distribute signals for cable companies, television and radio stations and television and radio networks. When I worked at a radio station, it was used for the reception of news feeds and Metropolitan Opera broadcasts and the quality was greatly enhanced using this system rather than the old telephone lines. I request you consider an alternative rather than using this spectrum which is so valuable to this nation and even used worldwide.

    Thanks for all the input. Attached are the National Translator Associations comments to the FCC.
