FCC Action Threatens GPS Satellite Services

The FCC is at it again - this time its International Bureau is considering allowing operation of an interference-generating wireless broadband network from a company called LightSquared smack dab in GPS spectrum used by military, government, and civilian air traffic control, industry, and many American consumers for location, tracking, timing, mapping, surveying, agri-farming, or other GPS satellite-based services in the U.S.  

By all reports and tests made to-date, LightSquared's plan will render GPS unusable in most parts of the nation.

If you or your organization use or depend upon GPS, you are urged to visit the Coalition to Save Our GPS  web site to learn more about this very serious threat.
