Verizon, Ericsson, and Qualcomm recently announced plans to test spectrum-sharing technology in the 3.5 GHz band. The band is used for military radar systems, but the FCC believes the band can be shared with commercial uses in some situations. This new Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band is being considered for various licensed and unlicensed shared uses by the FCC. Verizon wants to use the band to add download capacity to its LTE network in high-demand areas like stadiums, college campuses, or airports. The band is currently 3550-3650 MHz, although the FCC is also considering stretching it to 3700 MHz.

is this even legal to post?

i understand verizon wants to share and that is fined and dandy... but describing the range of our militarys usage does appear to give an upper hand to the enemy.
You're able to Google "Spectrum licenses" and get the same information online. It's all open information.
This has always been quite public info, for a number of reasons.

First, you can buy a handheld device for not terribly much money that will let you inspect and analyze any radio signal at any frequency. I'm pretty sure it would be absolutely trivia...
