ABSTRACT
The author offers views on the provision of more spectrum sharing between ultra-high frequency (UHF) television (TV) stations and land mobile systems in the U.S. He recalls an incident in 1987 in which the Association of Maximum Service Telecasters (AMST) filed a petition against such a proceeding proposed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). He believes that the public will benefit from greater wireless opportunities, as well as from 1080i resolution. He comments on the delay in resolving the problem in auctioning the D Block spectrum.
