So, right, adding 100 kHz will really motivate all the people who don't already use the other 3.9 MHz.

I read land legal descriptions and deeds every day for my job, and I got bogged down trying to decipher what his meaning and intent really was with this thing. Hopefully the FCC will get enough negative responses that they won't seriously consider his proposal. Seems like a lot of language changes to the rules, just to basically leave things the way they already are.
