Re: Good riddance
They found a way to improve accuracy by using further away satellites that had doppler shifted outside the frequencies set for GPS, so yes, they are also guilty of using unapproved spectrum.
However they are firmly entrenched now and in widespread use, so the onus was always on LightSquared to show their service didn't cause problems for GPS. Apparently, they failed, but I do think that some of LightSquared claims may have some validity to them, but they had an uphill battle from the start. Was a huge gamble, which has failed..... but we really need people who think outside the box.

Everything GPS uses is approved.
It is owned by american taxpayers and approved by american voters representatives.
GPS manufactures just make products so us tax payers can use the network we paid for.
There are great reasons why the FCC only allows other weaker satellites to broadcast around the GPS single. Lightsquaredd was trying to use spectrum allocated aside for satellite phones and internet for way more powerful ground use.
The FCC was nice enough to let lightsquaredd try with their phantom technology. that defied logic. Lightsquared has no real technology to do what they claimed so they lost their waiver. The FCC never had to let them have a chance in the first place.
