I was involved with the 800 mhz fiasco with the public safety bands and
the "Phone company!!??"  Because of the deluge of complaints and the
monies involved by repairing this, you would think they would learn from
a huge mistake....  Somehow, we forget the adage "we must learn from our
mistakes or repeat history" and politician$ only $ee what they want!
Thanks for pointing out another history lesson...

Subject: [amsat-bb] Lightsquared Analogy

I finally figured out a good analogy about the LightSquared and GPS

There is a "music room" where people can go and, with headphones, listen
to their own music.  No one disturbs anyone else.  Everyone is happy.

A LightSquared rock band comes into the room and begins to play at max
volume, and then insists there should be no problem because the
headphones work just fine in providing the isolation between what each
person is listening to.

Therefore the interference to everyone in the room is not their fault,
but the fault of the Headphone Manufacturers!
