Submission + - Who is WirelessForAmerica? (youtube.com)

It warns of an impending wireless spectrum shortage (only 24 months until the disaster hits!), and how they have just the answer, but of course it's being derailed by special interests.

It came off a pure political video — warning of an impending disaster if nothing is done, their solution uses American Ingenuity, will create jobs, etc.

So what's the real story behind WirelessForAmerica? Are we running out of mobile bandwidth? Is their solution really the best alternative? From what I've gleaned from their WirelessForAmerica.org website, they want to use frequencies that are so close to existing GPS frequencies that nearly all existing GPS receivers would need to be replaced and future receivers would need to be designed to better reject neighboring frequencies.
