ARLB007 FCC changes hearing date

The FCC has changed the date of its en banc hearing on spectrum
policy and management to March 5, 1996, and the ARRL hopes to
participate.  The original hearing date of January 31 had to be
rescheduled because of the Federal furloughs triggered by the
congressional budget deadlock and heavy snow which extended the
shutdown.

The FCC will hear oral presentations and ''allow a direct exchange of
viewpoints'' among individuals and representatives of affected
industries.  The commission will select panelists from among those
who have submitted letters of interest.  Panelists will address
future spectrum demand and user needs, trends in technology, and
approaches to spectrum allocation and assignment, including
licensing and uses.
