700 MHz Appendix: A List of All My Posts on The 700 MHz Auction Proceeding

Well, it’s been a fun couple of months. I expect we will see more action on the actual implimentation of 700 MHz Auction, new developments, and so forth. But I’m rather hoping to ratchet 700 MHz back from overwhelming white-whale-type obsession to just one more spectrum item amidst the spectrum and non-spectrum stuf I cover. For example, the M2Z application has taken a serious turn for the interesting.

So, preserved for posterity, and because it makes my life easier than going through the archives, I list every TotSF 700 MHz Auction post to date.

Stay tuned . . . .

  1. OK, you have all this material. You have the Rose Report and other side materials explaining the technical and economic issues. You have a burning desire to get the public interested in what most have seen as geeky technical stuff, the actual public interest underlying spectrum allocation – like, I barely paid attention to this when I was interested in ham radio; I imagine the non-techie public completely ignores it.

    So, once the auction actually happens, and a year or two passes to see what build-out actually occurs, do you think you might write a popular-style book using the 700-MHz auction as the basis of explaining why spectrum allocation should interest Joe Public-Internet-User?

  2. I’d like to. Still trying to get other projects done.

    If anyone would like to give me a fellowship to take time off and write, I’m all ears. Otherwise, the stuff that pays the bills (to the extent it does) comes first.
