FCC Chief Kevin Martin has announced
that the FCCs May agenda includes discussion of what to do with the D-Block spectrum which failed to sell at the 700 MHz auction earlier this year. The discussion will review all of the rules associated with auctioning the public safety spectrum including whether it is necessary to lower the reserve price in order for a sale to take place. It will also take a close look at allegations regarding pre-auction meetings that Cyren Call
(which is the Public Safety Spectrum Trusts advisor) reportedly engaged in, a matter that is also being reviewed by Congress. This discussion is the first step towards re-auctioning the D-block spectrum, a move which may happen later this year.
