IF the 2.4 ghz band is no good for future satellite work then WHY is 
it on P3E ?

My computer network is on 2.4 ghz but it is in my basement and my 
satellite antennas are on my roof. I changed my cordless phones to 
5.6 ghz because the 2.4 ghz ones crashed my sensitive network. Since 
we would not be transmitting on S band I doubt that a S band downlink 
from a satellite 40,000 K out in space would crash my network.

If cordless phones on S band would be a possible problem don't most 
of them hop channels if one channel is busy?  if so why not create a 
small ham beacon that would transmit our callsign at low power to 
chase the neighbors phones off our sat downlink?
