The "White Space": What to Do with It
Recent legislation in the U.S. Senate would allocate broadcast "white space" to unlicensed uses. Is this the best use of the potentially valuable TV white space? The Progress & Freedom Foundation is hosting a Congressional Seminar to examine the possible uses of spectrum currently used as a buffer for broadcast interference. The discussion panel will offer competing views from government, industry and policy representatives.
