Is the FCC Charlie's Meat Puppet and as soon as HE owns the spectrum, suddenly GPS be damned?
WTF is going on and WhoTF would want this spectrum if it can only be used for low-power ET signals? I thought tests showed that even with an ample guard band that significantly reduces the usable spectrum, there was still significant GPS interference.
It isn't enough spectrum for that, is it? Even with ET spot-beam technology, the spectrum cannot be reused thousands of times like it can when used with limited-distance terrestrial wireless cell technology.
Anything is possible but I don't think his satellite TV service is spectrum constrained. GEO sync orbital slots are the key limiter for ET transmissions. If you don't have to share an orbital slot, you have a bunch of spectrum for anything you want to do and are probably only limited by the satellite's capacity to rebroadcast that spectrum.
In fact, I thought Dish had several satellites in the same orbital slot to increase capacity. If that's true, they don't have a spectrum crisis for ET signals. It's purely a hardware problem.
