"The FCC should just allocate the band and let the market decide how to use it."
Marlon, that might normally be an appropriate tact, but this allocation is not for private use. It is an allocation designated to public safety, as in the safety interests of the general public. And within those interests exist a need for cross regional and cross departmental system interoperability, so that in a crisis groups can effectively communicate. Lack of effective comms between groups like the fire department and the police was identified as a major cause of the deaths of firemen and police officers in NYC (of course after the attack itself being the cause).

The 24mhz is already allocated and off the table for our use. However, it does seem to me that the band usage etc. should be left up to the end user. The FCC should just allocate the band and let the market decide how to use it.
