The FCC plans to amend an old Over-The-Air-Reception-Device (OTARD) rule to allow wireless companies to place 5G transmitters on private homes in your neighborhood, with no notice, no hearing, no opportunity for you to do anything about it. The FCC is supposed to work for the people, not the wireless companies. Please call Congressman Frank Pallone at (202) 225-4671 and ask him to hold hearings on the OTARD rule and stop the FCC! UPDATE: The FCC Has Updated the O.T.A.R.D. Rule.

It's time for the FCC to stop using taxpayer dollars to promote the interests of wireless companies and instead fulfill its mission to protect the health and safety of the American people.
