Thanks for the clarification, Matt -- you're clearly being quite
reasonable, and it's just the short quotes in the Wired article that made
your statements less so.

Personally I'm also in favor of making LPFM licenses easier to obtain; the
regulation changes in the past handful of years seem almost 100%
orchestrated by large commercial interests in the name of preventing
competition, and the FCC agreeing to them seems very much at odds with
their original mandate of managing spectrum in the *public's* best
interest.  (A mandate that seems largely forgotten these days...)

If you're looking for large chunks of spectrum to make public, the UHF TV
channels are prime territory that's largely gone to waste in the past few
decades as cable and satellite TV have become ubiquitous.
