NAB Response to FCC Claim that it has Completed A Spectrum Inventory

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- NAB responded to today's claim that the FCC has "completed our baseline spectrum inventory." The following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President Dennis Wharton:

"The FCC statement is a disappointing response to Congress, which is seeking a thorough spectrum inventory. The question is not whether the FCC can identify locations and licenses on the spectrum dashboard that have been set aside for specific services. The real issue is whether specific companies that bought or were given spectrum worth billions have actually deployed it."
