A New 3.5 GHz CB Radio Band?

GDE Error: Error retrieving file - if necessary turn off error checking (404:Not Found)

Is a new “CB” allocation of 100-200 MHz in the 3.5 GHz microwave band just around the corner? Possibly, according to Bennett Kobb, AK4AV. Not “Citizens Band” but “Citizens Broadband Radio Service.” Scroll through the embedded presentation above. Quite interesting.

    Seems like there is no limits to the corruption our government will not allow. I wonder how many high level people in Washington found a nice plain unmarked envelope full of unmarked $100 bills in their desk. This stinks of a major Corp. payoff of a lot people in the FCC and other places….

    Let me make sure I understand this…the FCC is wanting to open up the 3500 Mhz area to open access to the same folks who have no problem breaking the regs at 27 Mhz and believing the same won’t happen if this goes through? What are the moneyed interests going to do…electrify the chassis to fatally shock them if someone tries to change it to increase the power by tweaking the electronics?

    The Obama cronies at it again and nothing will ever change that!
