The article offers the author's insights on the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) policies for the broadcast satellite band service at 17/24 gigahertz (GHz). He mentions that the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) took over an allocation for broadcasting-satellite service (BSS) in 1992. Moreover, he states that in 2007, the FCC accepted a number of procedures for the broadcast satellite band but issues involving interference were not resolved.
