Voice Your Opinion: GPS Interference by LightSquared

Coalition to Save Our GPS:

In January, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) conditionally allowed a company called LightSquared to offer wireless broadband services in radio frequency bands adjacent to those used by GPS receivers. Based on feedback from public and private sector GPS users, the FCC told LightSquared that it could not launch service until testing could be completed to determine the extent of the problems that LightSquared would cause. The report of that testing was submitted to the FCC on June 30, 2011 and it showed that there would be massive interference to GPS from LightSquared’s proposed operations. The FCC has asked for feedback from the public on the report.
What can you do? Everyone who cares about GPS should let the FCC know about the threat that LightSquared poses. Follow the link to learn more:
