GPS Threatened, MALSCE Member Call to Action Still Needed - Contact your member of Congress:  Many of you have been following this issue, but we need your help with letters to your Congressman/Congresswoman.  MALSCE Has Joined the Save Our GPS Coalition: http://www.saveourgps.org/

There appears to be distinction between the effects, technical issues and solutions for consumer grade GPS and survey grade GPS.  MALSCE members need to understand these issue better and make sure our specific industry needs continue to be addressed.  Send your letters to Congress about this important issue.
