2007-04-25 Thread John Scrivner
Apparently there is a meeting scheduled today, April 25, at the FCC over how the 700 MHz band is going to be split up for auction. It amazes me how we can be kept in the dark about these meetings. If anyone can tell me how to get included on announcements of such meetings I need to know about

FCC Digest comes out daily with about 30 to 50 items. Sign up at fcc.gov This announcement today about the first of 2 auctions for 700 MHz is going to describe how the auction will go. Will it be large geographic chunks or smaller broadcast areas. Starts at 10:30. John Scrivner wrote:

The meeting notice popped up last week. I didn't know about the 700 MHz until this morning. The 700 MHz has been on comments since 2003. Regards, Peter -- WISPA Wireless List: wireless@wispa.org Subscribe/Unsubscribe: http://lists.wispa.org/mailman/listinfo/wireless Archives:

The other issue is equipment... you are willing to spend $20k RIGHT NOW for the license, but it would be at least a year before any equipment was available, and then it would be $500 per CPE and $10k per base station. A lot of the WISPs on this list spend an hour building a CPE to save $5.
