Lightsquared - chutzpah

Lightsquared becomes a synonym for chutzpah.

Demanding those who are victims of interference caused by your company should pay for the fix is truly arrogant.

LightSquared is running out of options. It's been throwing around billions of dollars for a while now without much to show for it. Investors are growing more and more wary. The company has to do something.

how about lazy and stingy sat equipment makers actually fix their wares? Tho I'm sure with AT&T involved there will be some excuse for that not to happen

LightSquared is not only demanding changes to FCC regulations detrimental to GPS users everywhere, it also demands that GPS users to bear the burden of mitigating the interference created by its proposed network of 40,000 transmitters.

The companies causing the interference are the vendors selling poorly designed GPS receivers that are sensitive to signals outside the GPS band. Yes, they are the arrogant ones, attempting to make use of spectrum that is licensed to someone else, that they didn't pay for, and which the FCC told them years ago would be used by someone else.

Do we have to rehash this over and over? Read this:

There is nothing wrong with GPS equipment. It picks up the signals as properly designed.
GPS signals from space will red shift 25 mhz into the spectrum lightsquared wants to use due to the laws of physics.
The spectrum lightsquared wants to use is for satellite only as a buffer for GPS. Other weak satellites can use it without jamming GPS. That is already a compromise for the buffer zone. Satellite phones have used those frequencies and John Deere uses those frequencies all without jamming GPS.

Lightsquare originally wanted to offer only satellite broadband, but now they are trying to use the satellite only spectrum for ground base use as that is more valuable. The ground base use will jam the red shifted signals.
Lightsquared took a gamble and lost.
