reading about it (having know nothing about it before and just googled it) and just knowing how our government works. I really doubt it would interfere with any frequencies or anything else ...
*Well, you're wrong there.* Boeing, Airbus, all the airlines that operate* in or into the US, airports themselves, and the FAA were VERY concerned about the impact LightSquared's proposed operation would have had on aviation safety.* With virtually all aviation navigation and approaches rapidly shifting to the exclusive use of GPS, and the very real potential for LightSquared's system to cause inaccuracies in GPS reception, the threat to people's lives was not something our industry was taking lightly.* The potential inconvenience to recreational boating would have been annoying.* The potential threat to air travelers' safety would have been a whole different story.
