LightSquared today asked the Federal Communications Commission for a two-week extension before it has to submit its report concerning interference with GPS systems. The report was due today, and LightSquared asked for permission to submit the report on July 1, instead. In a letter to the FCC, Lightsquared's executive vice president of regulatory affairs and public policy, Jeffrey Carlisle, said, "Based on preliminary test results, LightSquared determined that additional testing, beyond what had been planned initially, including alternative frequency plans to support its network roll-out, was necessary to permit a proper evaluation. That testing has been performed, and it has set back the timetable, particularly in some sub-teams in which data is still being processed and analyzed." The FCC gave Lightsquared permission to use its L-Band spectrum for a planned terrestrial Long Term Evolution network, but only if it can operate without interfering with the nearby GPS services.

These guys seem to be missing brain cells

They already states, several times, to more than one individual, that they can cap their frequencies short of GPS so that it does not interfere. Why don't they just Cap it already? Their machine will either cut the frequency off, or it wont, so what the hell is taking them so long? I personally think the FCC should give them all the time they want. If they can perfect this technology in 3 / 5 months so that it doesnt interfere, why not let them start up their business then?

The FCC and the way they govern their own rules makes no damn sence.
