GPS saved – for now

In the recent statement from the FCC the Lightsquared proposal has been effectively stopped in its tracks.  This is a big relief for all GPS users and especially high precision users. The FCC said “There is no practical way to mitigate potential interference at this time” and that interference would not be tolerated.  The GPS community seems to have won this scuffle but I’m sure it won’t be the last battle we have to fight.
