In my last post I alluded to the techniques by which the TV broadcast industry was resisting the FCC’s exploration of unlicensed use of unused spectrum in the TV bands. These techniques appear to have borne fruit. Representative John Dingell has written to the FCC with some questions that they need to answer before their November 4th meeting that has White Spaces on the agenda.
I hope that Rep. Dingell keeps an open mind on this issue, and studies it sufficiently deeply to form a balanced opinion. I hope the FCC commissioners stick to their guns and argue persuasively for their plans.
