You're just spinning your wheels, as you have been for the past 5 years.

If you have a legit business plan and legit financing, then YOU  
dictate to the manufacturers.  You put out a tender specifying  
exactly what you want, how you want it to perform, how many you want,  
and what price you'll willing to pay.  THEN you evaluate product that  
is supposed to meet YOUR spec.

It's clear to me that you're simply afraid of a market failure.  So  
instead of facing that inevitable conclusion, you'd rather blame  
everybody and everything else for not getting started in the first  
place.  Blame the modulation, blame the hardware, blame the government.

Blame yourself!
