NAB, MSTV challenge white spaces ruling in federal court

The Association for Maximum Service Television and the National Association of Broadcasters jointly filed against the FCC in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Feb. 27 asking the court to review the commission’s Second Report and Order allowing unlicensed fixed and personal/portable devices to operate in the TV spectrum white spaces.

According to court documents, the trade groups continue to stress their concerns that the decision will introduce interference harmful to the reception of their members’ broadcast signals and want the court to “hold unlawful, vacate and set aside” the order on the grounds that it is “arbitrary, capricious and otherwise not in accordance with law.”
