Possibly I am misreading this document but if, as i suspect, Ofcom is 
going to free up a large chunk of microwave spectrum for the Games, this 
will leave huge capacity once the Games are done and dusted. Should 
therefore, RSGB start lobbying now to mop up the spare space once the 
Games have gone? It seems like an opportunity too good to miss and on 
that basis, it probably is! However, if I am right, then RSGB should 
start NOW to investigate and put together an action plan! (lets face it, 
they need a good couple of years to do anything)
