On experimentation and allocation of the radio spectrum

I'm catching up on stacks of print media and came across another great editorial by Tom Gallagher, NY2F, ARRL CEO.   While making the point for amateur experimentation in the 47 GHz band he states "...our best defense of spectrum has at its core vigorous and wide-ranging experimentation".    Mr. Gallagher continues with an interesting analogy defending the preservation of public microwave bands over doling out to commercial interests by asking "how much would the nation benefit from the sale of National Park Service land for commercial development?"

Nicely stated!
