    Coming soon to a 70cm and 2 meter near you!

    ARRL response: we missed this boat so send more $$$$ so we can defend your amateur frequencies!

    That contradicts what is stated in the news release.

    "ARRL argues that amateur operations should be permitted until and unless an actual potential for interference exists."

    Doubtful about 2m. It's too low to be that useful for most of what commercial interests might want.

    70cm maybe a bit more useful but still low-for-use. No one wants an antenna sized for 70cm on their cell phone.

    I'd be more concerned about 1.2Ghz, which is, to my knowledge anyway, used a lot more also. (Though I may be wrong about that, I have no idea what anyone in ham radio may be doing on 3 Ghz. I do know there are 1.2Ghz repeaters in many places.)

    The 23cm band (1240 to 1300 MHz) is fairly safe. It's adjacent to the GPS downlink at 1227.6 MHz. After the Light Squared/Ligado fiasco, nobody will suggest that band for 5G.

    I'd say the next band to be worried about is 3cm (10.0 to 10.5 GHz).

    Current 9cm usage is mesh networking with Ubiquiti M3 Rocket routers, ATV and some weak signal work including EME.

    How many hams use 3.5 GHz on any regular basis? How many people are going to use 5G?

    Pretty simple.
