Thanks for noticing this and bringing it up. I think we should file
something which points out that this is more easily resolved in the
context of the pending rulemaking in 04-186.
We must be careful, however, to make clear that we just looooove public
safety and infrastructure and would never, ever, even for one minute think
of getting in the way of valuable infrastructure services. But the
approach proposed here is too narrow, and very limited. Imagine what
greater utility could be obtained by adopting the proposal on 04-186
If anyone else has interest, feel free to contact me privately or on list.
And speaking of public safety, the FCC sent to Congress a mandatory report
on use of spectrum by public safety.
As I don't think I ever saw the public notice, and wouldn't have had time
to comment even if I had, I can't fault the FCC for ignoring the potential
for unlicensed access to expand the capabilities of public spectrum rather
than just tweaking the 700 MHz band. But this may raise an opportunity
for a White Paper response suggesting that cognitive radios and greater
access to unlicensed spectrum would provider superior benefits.
