Heck even Obama's e-mails got hacked along with the SSA. So even with encryption, if its a good hacker they can break into whatever they want.
They have met with Wheeler several times, They have met with all the commissioners, The have had several calls and meetings with the OET an other technical people. They have also met with the commissioners legal staff. At this point I don't see what else they can do. If the FCC doesn't do an R&O in August this will probably not get one. Monroe's optimism saying this should be approved soon, has to be evaporating. You can hire all the activists you want, but if someone, mainly Wheeler, has is out for Monroe nothing will turn him. We all read or heard several of the FCC commissioners state that they need to do something to expand the Broadband spectrum. They have also been touting that they need to streamline their procedures to let viable ventures get approved. Why then have we had to wait so long. FCC if you mean what you say then take action on 13-213.
Plus as they said in their Exparte, they already said the same thing on April 20th. So just a reiteration, that didn't have any effect back then and shouldn't now.
ESA a gaming industry, it has far less beneficial use for the US public, than what TLPS could provide. If the commissioners can't see this, they are useless.
What's frustrating is you have a commissioner stating yesterday after approving of the AT&T DirecTV deal saying it took to long for us to pass this. It was only 14 months after the NPRM. How long have we waited? Much longer that them and we don't have any anti-trust issues. Starting to think someone from FCC has a bone to pick with GSAT or Monroe.
Scary thought that terrorists could take over all the driverless cars in this country and wreck them. There needs to be in the computer design, that if an outside signal takes over systems it shuts down, warns the drive and goes to manual so the drive has complete control. If they can hack the President's e-mails they pretty well can hack anything. You got to figure we have the very best security experts working for us the keep terrorist from sending us to DEFCOM 5 and causing a nuclear attack. They also should protecting computers systems run by the President.
Why was there a meeting with the FCC lawyers? I am assuming that if an R&O was being written, the Technical People forwarded to the lawyers all the information they needed to write one. Not sure who called this meeting. It makes more sense the lawyers asked for it. They wanted to make sure if R&O is written and approved that if objections rise that GSAT has the vital information to prove their stance of no appreciable interference issues. If GSAT asked for the meeting, why meet with the lawyers, if they couldn't convince the FCC technical people on interference issues or the need for more testing, the meeting with lawyers isn't going to convince them to write the R&O. Does anyone else have any idea of why there would be a meeting with FCC lawyers.
Who is responsible at the FCC for writing the R&O? Is it the technical people or the lawyers? We were getting the run around in late June and early July, then finally had a meeting and conference call with all Technical people involved to see what the hold up was, or answer whatever questions remained. Then almost two weeks later we are having a meeting with FCC lawyers. Is this meeting to help them understand the test done in March and educate the lawyers on whatever the Technical people wrote up and sent to lawyers. Or is it, as Vic brings up a possible last ditch effort to try to convince them that we do have a viable solution to Broadband constraints and the revelation of real world test results will proof it.
I thought we were well on our way to the R&O after all the meetings and calls the last week of June and first 8 days of July. Now we get another company Ex parte. Looks like we will have to wait longer for any action from FCC. Maybe the person Monroe talked to at the FCC last year that led him to believe GSAT would get approval in December, meant this December. This is getting very frustrating.
I guess that only thing that concerns me is that they said in the last paragraph Globalstar will provide additional information regarding these TLPS deployments in the near future. Not that the FCC is doing a R&O this week, now I'm sure they will wait until this additional information is given. So it looks like the can got kick down the road again.
With the new rule change that took effect, why is he even filing this. I know he is desparate. I am disappointed we weren't on proposed agenda for August. I was hoping for a good surprise this morning. Oh well maybe next week.
I don't know that it will come out next week, but with all the recent meetings and Expartes, things seem to be heating up. So we'll see.
I think a good deal of the downturn was Greece, but the mandatory buying by Terrapin may have been a factor along with the distribution of shares to Hughes. I'd like to see us close this week around 2.50 and then get the R&O next week. I'd prefer it this week, but with the FCC meeting this week, I doubt they had time to issue it.
Granted in part, and denied in part, the Petition of Iridium Satellite LLC to reconsider or clarify a condition adopted on a license granted to Inmarsat Mobile Networks, Inc. for operations in the 29.1-29.25 GHz frequency band
Ok, but all those companies that bought Spectrum in the auction, don't own the spectrum they bought? They just have exclusive rights to it, if granted a license from the FCC?
Does GSAT actually own this 5096-5250 spectrum or were they granted the license like they were with the 2.4 spectrum?
They did bring up the possible interference with Radio and TV stations. Not sure if GSAT tested for this or not in the past.
