and why c-band anyway? aren't there PLENTY of Ghz out there waiting to be used?

the purpose of the FCC *used* to be allocate frequencies to a service and *protect* those frequencies and services. the purpose of governments *used* to be protect the normal joe blow from the greedy, rich, powerful corporations etc. too bad these expectations died along with the founders of this country, or shortly thereafter.

cellphone services have created a greedy monster of everybody streaming video on demand on their cellphones. isn't it time somebody (even the FCC) said "*enough*"?

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.

This really speaks to the Elephant In The Room that I’ve yet to hear anyone (on CRTech or in any other broadcast fora) address: what about *future* downlink earth stations? The whole point of building the original geosynchronous satellite constellation in the first place to enable one-to-many communication to *any* location within the antenna footprint of a given satellite. And we’re not just talking commercial broadcast; applications as diverse as remote telemedicine to distance education in rural school districts are all in play here. If this band-sharing plan goes forward, say goodbye to all of that (on C-band at least). Other than where a licensed/registered link already exists, every urban/suburban area in the country will be solidly covered by C-band wireless users within the next few years. The only areas in which new downlink stations will be feasible will be in far-out rural locations where there is little-to-no demand for wireless service. Consider this hypothetical scenario: five years from now, your studio lease is up and you need to move to a new building across town. You’d like to move your satellite dish(es) as well. Too bad! The wireless guys got there first, and the interference is now so intense that it cannot be remediated.

Make no mistake: this is an existential threat so far as the C-band satellite operators are concerned. Such service will no longer be practically feasible in that band in any long-term sense if the proposals as they currently stand are adopted.

Cheers!
