Just arrived from my Urgent Communications (land mobile trade news) newsletter:

      Chasm exists between LightSquared, GPS sector over interference issues


The final report that LightSquared and the U.S. Global Positioning System 
Industry Council (USGIC) will deliver today to the FCC will reveal that 
_LightSquared’s proposed terrestrial LTE network in the L-band will cause 
interference with GPS receivers,_ says a report today in the /Wall Street 

What might be surprising is that the report is expected to reflect a huge gap 
between LightSquared and the GPS community concerning whether a technical fix 
to solve the interference issue is feasible. *Reportedly, the GPS community now 
is saying that the FCC should move LightSquared to different spectrum as there 
is no viable technical fix.*
