    Today we ask for your support in ending a lobbying campaign that threatens to make Starlink unusable for you and the vast majority of our American customers.
    As recently reported, DISH Network has been hoarding spectrum for years as a strategy for preventing open and fair competition.
    Most recently, DISH has been attempting to claim new rights to the 12 GHz band, which is the spectrum you currently use to download content with Starlink. Despite technical studies dating back as far as 2016 that refute the basis of their claims, DISH has employed paid lobbyists who are attempting to mislead the FCC with faulty analysis in hopes of obscuring the truth.
    In reality, if DISH gets their way, Starlink customers will experience harmful interference more than 77% of the time and total outage of service 74% of the time, rendering Starlink unusable for most Americans. You can read the details here.

    The FCC and your members of Congress have the power to stop this effort, but they need to hear from you.

    Click here to ask the FCC and members of Congress to put an end to this threat.

    Yeah but think if someone with an interest in attacking starlink followed this... it's not like it's not being used in warzones or anything.

    Gen2 Starlink to be modified to launch on F9.
    Don’t know if this means Starship’s behind schedule…

    Will a storm like this block Starlink?

    Why yes, yes it will (spinning for 10 minutes, no end in sight):

    So a non-severe storm? What's your normal outages and obstructions look like? No end to the storm, looks like St Johnsbury is clear. Probably should upgrade now to see lightning strikes and claim the money waiting for you in an off shore account.

    I guess it was an intense cell. Rain, wind, lightning. Starlink came back about 5 minutes I posted.
