Frequency coordination is already done at the state level to a certain degree. Vermont Public Radio, for example, hired a guy and bought expensive software to perform propagation prediction so they could buy up as many frequencies as possible for low power translaters beating out the other stations (of which there aren't very many this being Vermont).
A close associate of mine is the amateur radio frequency coordinator for the state of Vermont. He's responsible for coordinating repeater frequencies in conjuction with his counterparts in other states (and Candada) as necessary.
In general all licensed radio users are required to meet certain requirements WRT not interfering with other licensed users so while they fight over bandwidth there is also necessarily some cooperation, especially on the local level, b/c most frequencies above 30mhz do not typically propagate very far (except during solar cycle maximae, like we're in now; 10m is open!)
None of this really has anything to do with the fact that an industry shill is sitting in "the big chair".
Welcome to Vermont. Now go home
Actually there are many jobs, our unemployment is below average and there are lots of small high tech companies. It's finding a job paying a reasonable salary, that's the trick. Most companies based in Vermont doing global business want to pay you a Vermont salary. Hence why I work for out of state clients.
There may not be anybody working ON SITE at Vermont Yankee who wants to see it shutdown. If I needed that paycheck to feed my kids I'd probably overlook a couple of leaky pipes myself. Obviously somebody at Entergy corp HQ wants it shut down as they are in fact shutting it down completely of their own accord. Do not forget Entergy just got recertified and kicked Vermont's ass in court. They didn't do that for fun and yet they are shutting it down. Sure I bet they wish it was PROFITABLE so they didn't HAVE to shut it down, but that doesn't mean they don't want to shut it down.
I guess my point is that nuclear power sucks and there are no winners here.
You want to be like the Greeks, and can't even say the word "FUCK"?
What the fuck is wrong with you?
Don't you mean "What the FVCK is wrong with you?"
No, that would be Roman.
