Contrary to current popular belief, the astronomical price paid for the live universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS) licences in Great Britain will not result in third generation services being stillborn. Europe will have UMTS networks up and running across the continent and customers will pay a fair price to access the new services. UMTS licences are hot property. They are the number one item on every global system for mobile communications operator and wannabe UMTS operator's wish list and are seen, rightly or wrongly, as a licence to print money. Consequently, when one of these licences comes up for sale, it is going to command a very high price. INSETS: I feel a writ coming on;What to do with all that money.

    This study presents reconfigurable antenna design for a front end (FE) that has separate transmit (Tx) and receive (Rx) path. In such an FE, the Tx and Rx antennas can be content with covering only the transmit and receive channels in a frequency band. Therefore they can be quite narrow-band....
