An Overview 23 that it needed to make its intentions known that it wanted to utilize the Ka band for NGSO FSS. Accordingly, in 1994, Teledesic Corporation filed its application at the FCC, opening the door on a new world in spectrum management and allocation issues. Teledesic’s application created a wave of press both for its novel proposal (a satellite system with over 800 orbiting satellites to provide broadband services on a global basis) and for its investors, Craig McCaw of McCaw Cellular fame and Bill Gates, the chairman of Microsoft.

Because of these critical applications, this band was not favored by many countries for identification for IMT 2000 and was taken off the table early in the conference. Because of the divergent interests on all sides of the battle in the years preceding WRC 2000, the result was uncertain as to whether there would even be an identification, much less in which band. The United States was hesitant to take any position on which spectrum should be identified. 7-GHz band. Many countries believed that the entire conference could be at jeopardy and the validity of any decision would be questioned if the United States did not actively support the decision of the conference.

Conclusion This chapter provided a basis for exploring the many issues surrounding access to the spectrum resource, including a brief overview of the key terms, institutions, and processes involved. Chapter 2 will supplement this discussion with a more in-depth discussion of spectrum in general and will be followed by an extensive discussion of the domestic and international processes governing the radiocommunications spectrum, including a discussion of the key issues involving access to this resource.
