'Facts and Engineering' to Settle LightSquared's Fate: FCC
The FCC needs to do their job
Still to me the FCC should have never let the GPS companies to build so reckless to where their signal is pouring over on the L-band, knowing that in the future this spectrum was going to be wanted/needed to be used. SMH.
There are two ways to fix this problem. Period.
1) Replace all the cheap, shoddy, accepting-out-of-band-transmissions-as-legiti mate-signals GPS receivers in the world.
2) Increase the guard band size so that cheapskates like Garmin, TomTom and Trimble can keep their lousy second rate radios functioning in the midst of an L-Band LTE rollout.
How crazy is this? "We won't let LightSquared use any of their spectrum unless they can use all of it!"
Nuts. Absolutely NUTS! It's underutilizable because the GPS makers build crappy radios that don't properly amplify ONLY the signals in the desired band.
Long term solutions?
