White space data network trial in Wilmington

Cognitive radio in Wilmington Two experimental TV band white space licenses are included in the FCC list of experimental actions from 1/1/10 to 2/1/10. One of them is TV Band Service LLC that received a license for use of 168-216 MHz and 470-608 MHz spectral bands "to conduct research by using vacant spectrum in the television broadcast band, for the testing of fixed Whitespace devices" in the Wilmington area, DL. This company seems to be working with Spectrum Bridge to set up this network. Rick Rotondo, chief marketing officer and co-founder of Spectrum Bridge declared:

There's a ton of white space in Wilmington"

More information on ABC News and other sources.

The second license is for Spectrum Bridge itself (also interested in becoming a white spaces database provider) and covers the same frequency range in the area of Lake Mary (Seminole), FL.

A third experimental license somehow related to cognitive radio was granted to Matthew T. Kaufman, to use part of the 700 MHz band to "perform a non-line-of-sight digital network experimentation" with fixed and mobile devices in Los Gatos and Bonny Doon, CA. Kaufman stated that the main purpose of his experiment is to determine the real-world performance of the 700 MHz band in non-line-of-sight conditions. The results obtained will help the future development of "rapidly-deployable public safety networks for disaster situations".
