The author reflects on the allocation of spectrum of television frequencies and commercial companies agreeing to share with the first responder community to avoid bidding for available spectrum by the U.S. federal government. He believes that who ever gains access to the spectrum should do it in a fair and open manner. He discusses the first responder community's complaint of not having enough spectrum.
