The response to this petition has been phenomenal - thanks to everyone for your help. We were hoping for 2,000 signatures by Monday 7-July, but with everyone's help spreading the word we've gone viral and this afternoon we surpassed 2,600 signatures. There's no reason to think that we can't keep this up and reach 4,000 or even 5,000 by Monday.
To make this happen, we need YOUR help. Post the link to the mailing lists of your local clubs and groups, Facebook and Google+ pages, post and retweet on Twitter, email your friends, check into your local repeater net and read the URL on the air. Let's do this!
