    For those of you that care about the accuracy of weather forecasts now and in the future, you may want to

    1. investigate the current state of the auction of the 5G wireless frequency "spectrum" by the FCC and particularly the FCC's dismissal of the NOAA and NASA study regarding the effects on the accuracy of our Nation's weather forecasting 
    2. take action as you feel led to contact your elected representatives in Congress as the matter is time sensitive. 
    Adapting together!
