"The company also wanted a complete set of data with the names of the 
manufacturers of each receiver — a change in the confidentiality arrangements 
that governed tests done several years ago when the LightSquared proposal first 
was being considered. Furthermore, the test results should indicate receiver 
resiliency and that should be made public."

"“Is reduced accuracy an ‘actual harm’ in your mind?” asked another attendee."

I bet they have a roomful of lawyers on the payroll.

        I respectfully request that you follow the money to
understand why this group has access to the FCC.

        It's mostly partisan but not entirely.

        Contact your Congressmen - House & Senate, and let them
know that you'll take a dim view at election time if they allow
this madness.

        Also, contact your favorite 2016 candidate(s) and give
them the same message.

        Also, contact your local EOC, public service, airport
& private pilot groups, SAR, etc. and give them a heads-up.

        We live in a participatory-Republic & if we don't
participate effectively then the crony corporations will
eat our lunch.

        BTW: Also let those concerned about health harm from
RF know that 40KW transmitters at those frequencies could
cause all manner of unknown harm to man & beast.

        Make a Donald Trump/Al Sharpton big noise out there!

IMHO, YMMV ... David KD4E
