    • Create Forums to get the People Involved

      Create a Forums on the site and link articles and ideas to the forums. So not only do we get general comments, but people can also become involved and have a voice in their government and in the FCC. The most important part of the FCC is communication, which this would help accomplish.

      • Whatever happen to "Layman's Terms"? Why is the FCC website so difficult to understand?

        I want to an asset to my community by applying myself and obtaining a Ham license but I got a headache after one hour on your site and never finding what I was looking for. Here is a simply question:How much for a lifetime Ham Radio operators license? After one hour,I still couldn't find the answer.

            • Make the 3 actions more graphically obvious!

              Right now the 'Take Action' button is _way_ too small, it takes up <5% of the screen area and is overshadowed by the rotating graphics etc - but it's the most important part of the page!

              I'd suggest eliminating the 'click to drop down' behavior and make four large static buttons (perhaps each with a graphic) for 'complain, comment, discuss, help'. These buttons should be the primary focus of the 'above the fold' page, taking up the majority of the real estate. Perhaps a horizontal tiling of the four large buttons, with the scrolling graphic features below and the newsroom…

              • Broadcast tv reception advice needs to be added or more prominient, I couldn't find it.

                I followed what I thought might get me to some useful consumer info on BCast TV reception. The coverage maps, antenna advice and help, OTARD rules, prominently displayed.

                  • The site is not accessible to the blind.

                    The site is apparently using new code. It is nearly impossible to use. I am a Radio broadcast engineer an I rely on the site. I am also legally blind. In it's new form, I will not be able to get around it. It makes no sense to a person listening to it with a screen reader. It is repeating "type in text" for every letter I am typing right now, due to what? It does not happen on any other site. There are no HTML Headings now on the old page, where did they go? Menus on the new…

                            • We need a "do not email" list law similar to the "do not call" list.

                              Email spam is a huge time waster and in some cases is even worse than having unsolicited phone calls.

                              • Make it easier to access information pertaining to Amateur Radio

                                I cannot seem to find any information about amateur radio licenses, new licenses, or regulatory information. I tried to search using the search bar on the homepage, but, it showed various documents, no results pointing to a generalized amateur radio "portal". Please make it easier to find this information from the homepage.

                                  • A rule search engine would be great. Just rules and not the reference to a rule.

                                    A rule search engine would be very useful. Just rules specific, not all the extraneous references that come up every time you search a rule number. I just want an easy way to see a rule.

                                    • Publish the number of complaints received by sending phone number, business name, and other criteria. This would ID worst offenders.

                                      Publish the number of junk fax complaints the FCC receives. Sort by sending phone number, business name, and other criteria. This would call attention to the worst junk fax offenders. Phone companies could use the list to investigate and shut down offenders.

                                      • Get the government out of the the business of providing phone service for the poor or the lazy.

                                        I am being charged a subscriber line fee in order that free loaders can have phone service. This is socialism and I don't want to support or live in a socialist country. Discontinue this charge so that I can afford to have a wire line to my house.

                                          I can find the correct category to file a 'unwanted text message' spam. If you could make your online form easier that would be great.
