LightSquared Petitions for NOAA Spectrum Use
This spectrum would replace the 1545-1555 MHz spectrum segment [for] terrestrial purposes
LightSquared has filed a Petition for Rulemaking asking the FCC to allocate the 1675-1680 MHz band for terrestrial mobile use. Along with the 1670-1675 MHz spectrum it already has. This spectrum would replace the 1545-1555 MHz spectrum segment [allocated for] terrestrial purposes, avoiding--LightSquared claims--the problems of interference to GPS receivers that have thwarted its efforts to roll out a nationwide wireless network.
