Dear Sirs:
>From childhood (1930), I have listened to whatever radio signals I could
find in the "ether". Since I became licensed as amateur radio operator
W5MLW in 1946 I have detected and observed every kind of electromagnetic
radiation available to me. Likewise, since television first became
available in Texas I have examined TV signals whenever and wherever I
could find them. I have always accepted the right of the FCC to
regulate my generation and transmission of electromagnetic radiation in
order to prevent the chaos which would ensue otherwise.
I have never, however, accepted any limitation of my right to detect and
examine any unsolicited form of electromagnetic radiation which comes
into or onto my property and the space above it. If I come across
information that might be copyrighted I will follow "fair use"
principles as permitted by law. If obviously private in nature, I will
not use such information for personal gain, nor will I communicate it to
others. Nevertheless, I do maintain my right to detect, examine and
evaluate--by any means whatsoever--any kind of energy or signal crossing
my threshold.
Therefore, I vehemently oppose any regulation which would interfere with
my right to examine all forms of energy which enter my property
unsolicited by me, and will join the multitude of others who think as I
do that my Government cannot justify, and has no right to attempt, by
government regulation, the criminalization of detection and examination,
by any means which I/we can accomplish, of such signal(s) or energy.
Respectfully submitted, Ray W. Ware

<DIV>Dear Sirs:</DIV>
<DIV>From&nbsp;childhood (1930),&nbsp;I have listened to whatever radio
signals
I could find in the "ether".&nbsp; Since I became licensed
as&nbsp;amateur radio
operator W5MLW in 1946 I have detected and observed every kind of
electromagnetic radiation available to me.&nbsp; Likewise, since
television
first became available in Texas I have examined TV signals whenever and
wherever
I could find them.&nbsp; I have always accepted the right of the FCC
to&nbsp;regulate my&nbsp;generation and transmission of electromagnetic
radiation in order to prevent the chaos which would ensue
otherwise.&nbsp;
</DIV>
<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV>I have never, however, accepted any limitation of my right to
detect and
examine any unsolicited form of electromagnetic radiation which comes
into or

principles
as permitted by law.&nbsp;&nbsp;If obviously&nbsp;private in nature, I
will not
