Need some help . . .

I need some help here. I've got a ham radio problem that's more
political than technical but I'm going to win with a technical knock

Here is what I wrote to Steve, N7HPR:

So, what I'm looking for is what guidance the Navy gives to it's base
commanders in regards to amateur radio use on its bases, in terms of
both MWR and technical considerations. If it helps you, you can send
whatever you can to me as an HTML file.
