you are making presumtions based on thin air, with no basis in anything.. Unsafe to do so at this point. If you want to destroy ota tv reception, you could ask for nothing better than wsds. How about making them operate on the ISM bands? Then, they'd only interfere with radio diathermy, wi-fi and microwave ovens.

The OTA industry is already doing a great job of killing their medium. They need not fear the potential of white space devices to interfere with the small percentage of viewers using their service.

I am really tiered of the whining of broadcasters that they need protection. It's time to start using the broadcast spectrum for something useful to EVERYONE. Twenty years of procrastination is more then enough.
