When they're working , amateur satellites project the largest utilization
footprint on the planet of any other aspect of amateur radio.  

You might consider that populating C band (5 GHz) and X band (10GHz) with
birds and earth stations will go further toward protecting our frequencies
than all the clever phrases.  

Let me suggest that supporting AMSAT is a good way to stabilize and assure
the future.
