I looked up this docket number and the coment period I see was over by
January 28, 2005  It
references a study in 2003 and I found it discussed by the ARRL in 2004.  I
don't see any recent activity.

What did I miss?

As if BPL and CC&R's aren't bad enough, it appears we may have a new
potential tower construction threat issue to deal with in the future.

I'm passing along some info that I just read in a newsletter from my
Attorney in Washington.  It appears to pertain to commercial tower
installations, but you know the drill...give the environmentalists an inch
and they'll take a mile. Most Enviro-Nazis do NOT distinguish between
amateur & commercial towers...they hate 'em all.  Hopefully the ARRL is on
top of this, because even a remote possibility that future tower
constructions might all require costly Environmental Assessments if the FCC
adopts policy changes requested by the US Fish & Wildlife Service could be
bad news for us.  In abundance of caution, we might want to all file
Comments on behalf of Amateur Radio in the Proposed Rulemaking in Docket
03-187 before the January 22 deadline.
