This was exactly my thought. I like the idea of registering to let the FCC know how many users are out there and *depend* on C-band satellite to make the communications networks work. However, my gut feeling is that the FCC will go ahead with this regardless. There are many more wireless users begging for more data than there are broadcasters. So I agree...paying to say "yes, we're here" so the FCC knows how many users it's ignoring, but offering no protection, I can think of better ways to spend the money. It seems like I've just flushed $435 down the bureaucratic hole.

Recognizing that no one has a crystal ball, let me throw out a couple of questions...

If I register now and the FCC goes ahead with this stupid idea, could I then do a PCN and *add* it to the registration? Since I'm already an existing user will I have any kind of priority to do that, or have I now lost any hope of having protection if the move is made and I don't have a coordinated downlink when that decision comes down? I guess the big question I'm really asking is this: As the manager of a small non-profit ministry, help me understand why this is a good use of resources. This is kind of what I got from the two responses below that I'm responding to, but really didn't see that conversation continue.

That was what I was thinking…….

 

If there’s no protection , what’s the point of spending the money? I could use a new microphone more than I could use a registration that won’t protect me from interference…..

Your interpretation [that registrations filed without a PCN would not be afforded any protection] seems to be the more correct version.
