I've wondered what would happen with something like a licensed lite that 
you had to pay $200 a year for access to a band. If the FCC did that, 
and people actually used the bands, then they could make some money, and 
people could get access. If, for instance, you had say 700-740 MHz and 
each WISP paid $200 a year for that band, wouldn't that add up?
