The Threat to America's Weather Satellites
The FCC is being lobbied to let cell phones share the same radio frequencies used by the satellites and other meteorological instrumentation. More information is here. The accuracy of all types of weather forecasts will be adversely affected if the frequency interference is allowed to occur.
I have made my thoughts known to our elected representatives on this topic. If you agree, I recommend you drop a note on the White House's web site or on the web site of your congressional delegation.
