Microwave frequencies used by television stations for their TV Pick-Ups for the transport of programming, and by cable systems for their CARS relays, were the subject of an FCC order last week looking to repurpose these frequencies to provide backhaul for wireless broadband and other telecommunications uses.  The Commission’s order sets out to protect existing users, but to allow these frequencies to be used by wireless users in rural areas where there will not be interference to licensed broadcast or cable users.  Our firm’s Broadband Law Advisor Blog summarizes this order and the request for further comments in this proceeding.  Comments are due October 4 and Replies on October 25.
