Better Communication in Disasters - Correction

Earlier this week I posted happily that the FCC has put the petition Jeff Pulver and I filed to improve communications in a disaster up for public comment.  However, Jeff and I initially misunderstood the FCC instructions for filling out the online form so some helpful people got an unhelpful error messages.

Corrected instructions:

The form is at http://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/ecfs/upload_v2.cgi.  You need to enter the code RM-11327 in the first line (this is what we got wrong).  Just a few sentences of support, improvement, or disagreement are fine.

More details are in my post here and Jeff's post here.

The deadline for comments is April 27.  This is appropriately short since it is important to have this mitigation in place before the next hurricane season.

Thanks for your help.
