    TLPS is not on the agenda as we all have known for some days. We will not be given any notice until a decision is made, and today does show that Chairman Wheeler has his own style of making decisions.

    Quite an abrasive meeting today, IMO, but no surprise to me. Now waiting for Wheeler to get called on the carpet again, probably soon, to appear at some Congressional hearing ( my hunch.) Wheeler spent a lot of his personal political power today at what may come to be a high cost to him.

    E-rate scheduled to be last item on agenda today. Expect fire storm discussion - so I guess, thus I think the change in presentation. We'll see.

    That ATC authority was a good foundation to allow GSAT to remain in progress on the NPRM. They also use this as a pivot point to maintain the logic with DISH, supporting the satellite sector use of terrestrial spectrum going forward as almost exclusive requirements. They seem sensitive to the needs for spectrum monetizing for sustained and growing these space based assets. GSAT made good use of those meetings to keep the FCC informed.

    I came to the same conclusion as you did - this is good. Verizon wanted to circumvent the NPRM process, perhaps so someone else could nail some GSAT spectrum, but the FCC said no to Verizon. Thus IRDM's last ditch effort to go for their petition. I agree with your remarks concerning Congress.

    There are many, many excellent videos and webinars about White Spaces to be viewed on You-Tube, and a great deal of testing has been done, and equipment developed, and database management systems for signal control and routing etc. I believe the problems holding them back so far are getting the spectrum assigned or put together through the FCC and making the right sort of deals with TV stations etc. Lots of big names involved with White Spaces, not just Microsoft. I think, the last time I researched this, they were still trying to interface this with consumer goods etc. and then there will be lots of time required to get permits for mounting their antennas etc. So it appeared to be years away from getting to market. The plan is to use UHF portion of the old analog TV signals - which obviously can reach out long distances and penetrate walls etc. - someday.

    I'm not prepared to say it couldn't work with TLPS in some fashion, with TLPS being on the last mile, but don't count on that until or unless we hear something different ( It's all fairy tales until then. ) I don't think TLPS would be the back haul, probably microwave and/or fiber to go the distance back. White Spaces would be the big pipe in and the other would not have to be as large. The system is like video on demand - mostly one way with requests representing a lot lower traffic. That's my lay person observations.

    iptechpat: Here's your payback for some DD I promised you. TODAY July 11th the above R&O will be published in the Federal Register to take effect in 60 days time.

    Here's the critically important part, IMO, - The background information concerning Verizon's assertion is CUT. This could lead people to make wrong conclusions and assume that GSAT has been rebuffed, where actually I agree it's a good thing to have been screened out on this. Shareholders should not jump to conclusions, they should read carefully and not panic by overlooking the important missing background information. Notice of this publication was circulated in preliminary .PDF format Thursday slated for final Federal Registry publication today, Friday, to be effective 60 days after publication.

    The NPRM is still under review process. Hope you will consider this pay back in full !
