Re: Truth or FUD?

"Its like setting up a high precision watch factory in a ZONED as quiet neighborhood. Then next door someone bribes the planning commission to allow a Disaster Area concert at 1000 decibels, which knocks your precision equipment for a loop..."

There is one big problem with your analogy, besides the implication that the lightsquared deal involves corruption, bribery and something sinister and it is this:

A 1000 decibel concert is going to create noise within the factory owned area. In other words, the concert is impinging on the property that the factory owns and impacting the factory's use of its own property. But lightsquared isn't impinging on gps allocated spectrum. It is staying within its own allocated spectrum. A more accurate analogy would be if the watch factory had built part of its factory on a neighbors property that the watch factory didn't own and then, when the neighbor wanted to build on his property, the factory tried to stop it because it would interfere with the factory's use of property that didn't belong to the factory. Lightsquared is not going into gps allocated spectrum and interfering with it. Gps systems are using spectrum outside of what was allocated to them and they don't want anything to happen that will hinder their use of that spectrum, even though it doesn't belong to them.

I understand your argument about zoning but zoning of property near yours can change. You may not like it and that is understandable but you can't rely on the assumption that all the land around yours will remain unchanged and zoned the same way forever. The gps business has had many years knowing this day would come and that they couldn't rely on use of this spectrum outside of their allocation forever.

Incorrect. The GPS spectrum includes all the doppler-shifted satellite-to-ground frequencies. The Lightsquared spectrum does not, as originally allocated, include the ground-to-ground spectrum that they want to use, nor the doppler-shifted satellite transmission area in the reception zone, until FCC got corrupted with this.
