Rest Easy (at least for now) You Know Where You Are)

Remember the controversy about GPS I wrote about last July? That there was a new company hoping to provide broadband service ... but their proposed spectrum would interfere with GPS used for everything from the military to your car's GPS to (gasp!) our boat's chartplotter? From this article, or this one, it looks like FCC has quashed the proposal indefinitely. Works for me; given the choice, I think it is more in our national interest to have reliable geolocation service, than for more people to be able to quickly upload their home YouTube videos.
