The shareholder meeting will be held the following day, Aug 10.
The FCC is focused on the headline-grabbing 24+ GHz spectrum release. It has public appeal, and makes the FCC look good, just what a government agency wants prior to a presidential election. I'll be extremely surprised if they move on RM-11738 prior to the election. But we do have the FirstNet RFP decision still (tentatively) scheduled for November 1. So there's at least that to look forward to.
There's been very little spectrum activity the past couple of months. PDV/EWA/the lawyers have been holding exparte meetings fairly regularly with various "staff members of the office of Commissioner ...'" Most recently with members of the Office of Engineering & Technology (on July 26).
I wonder if the timing of the FCC's decision is at all predicated on the FirstNet contractor award tentatively set for November 1. That is, will the FCC determine how they're moving forward with RM-11738 based upon whether PDV is chosen as the FirstNet contractor? In truth, I think I'm reading too much into this, that I'm looking at a chess board comprised of disparate pieces.
In any case, I'm looking forward to hearing how PDV's increased promotions have paid off thus far; what sort of (if any) traction they're getting in any of the markets; and what their near-terms plans are for additional revenue streams, particularly if there's been any progress in the machine-to-machine enterprise market.
Any of you gentleman have thoughts on PDV near-term business strategies, RM-11738, or the FirstNet RFP? I'd love to hear them. Thanks!
