Radio Frequency Sell Off

The government is planning to sell off all of the radio frequencies
('spectrum') that we currently use for radio mics & communications, when
they switch off the present analogue TV channels. The process to due to
be completed by 2012, but will be starting much sooner than that.

There is at present NO sensible allowance planned for radio microphone
use within the UK, and this will affect all broadcast and recorded TV,
theatre, schools, other live entertainment & corporate events - indeed
anywhere that currently uses a radio microphone.

The government's action is, of course, motivated entirely by raising
money, and the result will be a damage to people's livelihoods as well
as their enjoyment of pretty well all forms of entertainment.

Please take a moment to contribute by clicking on the following link,
and please pass this on to as many people as you can. It's maybe true
that two millions signatures won't sway the government on road pricing,
but don't let that dissuade you - we must try!
