(The caption of this thread should read "Maine Requests Rail Frequencies.")

If the radio channel needs of the other 49 states are met by using the AAR allocations, why does Maine have to go "outside" the AAR channels and take up even more spectrum? It looks even sillier when they admit that there is actually so little railroad activity in the state.

I wonder what's actually going on here. Is it possible that some manufacturer is stirring things up and just wants to sell a boatload of equipment?

What's going on? Poaching ....... they're looking for the spectrum for non-railroad use including Public Safety .

Now, if only government agencies could answer applications such as this with something like, "No; get the hell out of here and stop wasting our time!"

Of course they can't, but wouldn't it be great? Think of the time that would be saved.

Yes, but this is the same FCC that didn't see problems with LightSquared's application...
