    If you are a musician ( or actor or church or public speaker), be aware that the frequencies being sold include those which we use for our wireless ( radio) microphones, instruments and ear monitors. The gear you own will probably be useless, no new frequencies are being alloted for our use.The Grammy website has detailed info.
    The best it seems we can do is to write/ call email your representative- try to keep the FCC from selling off our access to these frequencies.

    Those are *our* airwaves the FCC is auctioning off to the highest bidder.

    I bet that if you’ve got $10 billion to spend, there are a LOT of people who would like to speak with you.

    @Jaysyn:

    Yes, they are “our” airwaves, and “we” are auctioning them off. Remember, the $ go to fund the gov’t. You can certainly disagree about how those $ are spent, but it’s not like the money is being pocketed by some guy who’s running off to the Bahamas.
