Time to Comment on the Proposed New Fees

The fees Notice of Proposed Rulemaking was published in [the October 15, 2020] Federal Register. The deadline for comments is November 16, and the Reply comment deadline is November 30.

With this in mind, I am extending the following suggestions you might consider using in writing to the FCC in response to the NPRM. Our thanks to Dave Siddall K3ZJ, ARRL Counsel, for these guidelines. Be sure to carefully review the paragraphs “Some Suggestions” as the information therein will assist with much of the applicable background.

This subject is critical, the timing is critical. I urge you to contact the FCC. Address and related information is contained in the article referenced in the Federal Register. Please use your own words to express your objections to the proposed fees.
