The recently proposed license modifications made by Ligado are significant and merit allowing a terrestrial component. Radio services must have certainty in the protection against interference if we are to see the massive investment needed for large scale operations, but if the Commission is driven by worst-case-scenario thinking in attempting to minimize any possible interference, innovation and introduction of new services would grind to a halt. The FCC must not be trapped in forever providing absolute protection for poorly designed, wide-open receivers.
