The U.S. Department of Defense has reversed its original position regarding the 1755-1780MHz spectrum block, and now says it can relocate out of that band with little or no impact on DoD operations.
Department had previously voiced concerns that it couldn't easily move
to another spectrum block without causing problems.
The change means
that the Federal Communications Commission will eventually be able to
auction the 1755-1780MHz block for commercial use.
As recently as last week, U.S.
representatives introduced legislation that would require the
1755-1780MHz block be included in the next FCC auction.
