+ - Microsoft Questions FCC's 'White Spaces' Decision->

Submitted by narramissic
narramissic (997261) writes "The FCC on July 31 said a wireless prototype submitted by Microsoft and other members of the White Spaces Coalition interfered with cable television channels and therefore would not be licensed for use. But Microsoft claims that the device was malfunctioning when the FCC tested it.

In a letter to the FCC Monday, Microsoft said the scanner in one of two prototypes was damaged and 'operated at a severely degraded level.' 'The damaged scanner accounted for the entire discrepancy between the Microsoft and the FCC bench test data,' said Ed Thomas, a consultant for the White Spaces Coalition and a former chief of the FCC's Office of Engineering and Technology."
