Public Safety Orgs Want DTV Delay to Exclude 700Mhz

Public safety groups have been anxiously awaiting the availability of this spectrum to move forward with new communications systems for police, fire, and emergency medical purposes. FCC Chairman Kevin Martin recently spoke out against the proposed delay, as did the CTIA.

Verizon and AT&T this morning refused a request by federal transportation officials to delay this week's planned launch of 5G service in the critical new C Band. [Update: By evening, the two companies agreed to a two-week delay.] The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) insists that the service could potentially interfere with radio altimeters that planes use to measure distance to the ground in poor weather.
Are they really that stupid??
because lots of older seniors dont know about it?
make every analog TV stations brecast this fixed message after DTV transaction day!
"in order to view regular programing, you need to call this 1800-ORDER-Converter box to view programing"
Why exclude the 700 spectrum?
Because the years of warning wasn't enough...
The boxes are dirt cheap, and digital cable/sat TV both come with boxes if you get the service.
If people don't have their boxes by now, well then they will have to get them or they might go without their locals.... the shame.
