FCBA Brown Bag Lunch on PCAST Report and Its Impact on Federal Spectrum Policy

On Wednesday October 3 at 12:15 - 1:30 PM the Engineering and Technology Practice Committee of the Federal Communications Bar Association will sponsor a “brown bag lunch” on the PCAST spectrum report.

Speakers: Preston Marshall, Deputy Director, Information Sciences Institute, University of Southern California and "Invited Expert" contributor to report; Larry Irving, Irving Group (Former NTIA Administrator); Christopher Guttman-McCabe Vice President, Regulatory Affairs, CTIA

This discussion will be different than previous ones int eh DC area in that the speakers have been asked not to focus explosively on the issue of sharing vs. reallocation, rather they will also discuss other key issues int he report such as receiver standards and reform of federal spectrum management. It is you blogger’s viewpoint that no substantive progress in repurposing federal spectrum through either reallocation (favored by the cellular industry) or sharing (proposed in the PCAST report) is possible without some fundamental changes in federal spectrum management.
