Leave it to ‘government’ to find ways within the law to get things done that make no sense except to the bureaucrats that are trying to get an agenda fulfilled. In the quest to make sure as few impediments as possible stand in the way of taking back as much TV spectrum possible, no bother waiting for the answer to “Can you hear me now?“– MisterDTV
We have previously written about the Commission’s apparent quest to move as many Class A television stations back into the LPTV category as possible. Presumably this quest is motivated by the Commission’s seemingly all-consuming urge to free up as much TV spectrum as possible for “repurposing”.
That urge has now driven the Commission’s Video Division to reach into the grave to take a couple of Class A authorizations back from a dead guy. (The two orders may be found here and here.)
