ABSTRACT
The article looks at the decision of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) not to address the 700 megahertz (MHz) D Block auction before the commission is reconstituted after the inauguration of U.S. President Barack Obama. It mentions the fear that if the auction is not executed soon, and a deal would not be reached, then the opportunity to bring first responder communications into the future will be lost.
