The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has published a notice of a proposed ruling in the Federal Register that could lead to the licensing of millions of radio transmitters in the 1700–1710-MHz band. Transmission of data from meteorological satellites may be affected by this proposal: Since 1979, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been using that band for satellite-to-earth transmission for the High-Resolution Picture Transmission (HRPT) program.
