So we finally have our interests in GSAT aligned - both own shares at a similar price. First time in human history. And yes, the ATC story is not yet finished.

Qualcomm is keen on femtocells so it might yet be that one great big happy family will be back in business together one day.

In Globalstar recent reply comment to the DISH Terrestar/DBSD ATC proceeding. Globalstar opines that if DISH is granted flexibility similar to Lightsquared, then Globalstar will immediately request similar treatment and that court review would be forthcoming if Globalstar was not treated equally as it's MSS counterparts.

I also find that the FCC's suspension of Globalstar's entire ATC authority may have been illegal.

The FCC noted that while Globalstar's L Band operations provided the necessary coverage/spare satellite requirements, that, due to Globalstar's S-Band deterioration, that the SBand did not meet the coverage/spare satellite requirements. So the FCC had the authority to suspend Globalstar's SBand ATC authority, which is where Open Range Operated, it did not have cause to remove their L Band ATC operations. Hence, suspension of Globalstar's ATC authority in the L Band had no justification.

Steve Jobs wanted Apple to build own cell network for first iPhone

appleinsider.com

macworld.com

to bad [or would it aptly be "too good" :D] he didn't consider/know of/about ATC then?

[then again, given what Sprint is currently trading for, THAT whole Kit and Cabodle could be snapped up for not much of a dent in AAPL's ever burgeoning ca$h $tash.]

Some annoying person keeps offering more money for GSAT shares than I am. I have my suspicions as to who it is.

With GSAT's ridiculous pricing plans, delays and financial losses, it will soon be cheaper as more and more shareholders throw in the towel. When it's finally cheap enough, I'll buy the whole thing and do it right.

It turned out that the Ancillary Terrestrial Component was worth what I guessed; especially with the FCC kicking the door in, perhaps illegally, and simply in revenge rather than in the public interest.

I have seen Tero busy on DeVices for the last decade, <“The carriers are acting skittish and I think AT&T may not want to give Lumia a Christmas season slot,” said Tero Kuittinen, an independent industry analyst in New York, referring to the Windows Phone handset Nokia unveiled last month. AT&T will probably start selling Lumia in the first quarter, Kuittinen said. > He hasn't been interested in Globalstar though, as far as I know.

Meanwhile, somebody is single-handedly holding up the price of GSAT shares while nearly all other shares tumble in a bit of a market crunch as the debts come due and impoverishment is shown and governments make it illegal to work [due to minimum wages]. As well as making it illegal to work, they make it illegal to start businesses or expand them because with the thicket of rules, regulations, laws, imposts, taxes, charges, forced insurances and swams of other hurdles, few can take on the effort and the potential money to be made is not worth it.
