FCC to consider item on bands above 95 GHz at its February meeting | FierceWireless
"The FCC is set to consider an agenda item at its next open commission meeting on Feb. 22 that proposes to open up gobs of new spectrum above 95 GHz.

If approved, the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking would seek comment on adopting rules for fixed point-to-point use of up to 102.2 gigahertz of spectrum in various bands, as well as making up to 15.2 gigahertz of spectrum available for unlicensed use in several band segments and creating a new category of experimental licenses for the 95 GHz to 3 THz range."

aka Spectrum Horizons - Pai blog

"The FCC noted that the technologies that ultimately are deployed above 95 GHz will depend on the propagation properties of the spectrum in which those technologies will operate. Millimeter wave signals are affected by oxygen and water vapor within the atmosphere, although the amount of signal attenuation varies with frequency and other factors. Attenuation caused by oxygen is significant throughout the millimeter wave spectrum but increases dramatically around 60 GHz, 120 GHz and 183 GHz, the FCC said."

FCC plan for 5G spectrum above 24 GHz branded too timid - PolicyTracker Oct 2015
"Federal Communications Commission (FCC) plans to make spectrum above 24 GHz available for 5G prompted strong criticism from Republican commissioners and a former FCC official who say the regulator hasn't gone far enough. The satellite industry urged the regulator to protect its services in the bands, while the wireless sector called for more low-band spectrum."

Globalstar says proposed TLPS rules are even better than expected - FierceWirelessTech
"As Globalstar requested, the FCC's proposed new rules would let the satellite communications company deliver terrestrial low power service (TLPS) over its 11.5 MHz of previously-licensed S-band spectrum at 2483.5-2495 MHz, as well as the adjacent 10.5 MHz of unlicensed spectrum at 2473-2483.5 MHz.

Ann Arbor and the future of V2V/V2I, part II | Telematics Update
"[With the possibility of NHTSA ruling at the end of the year], the ITS community should have every reason to be hopeful. The timing [of the FCC NPRM] is potentially disastrous for the ITS community. That’s because the current DSRC test beds, including the Ann Arbor Safety Pilot, were never designed to assess potential complications from signal interference that may accompany an open 5.9 GHz band. “The FCC’s decision suggests a high degree of skepticism at this point at the FCC,” says Roger Lanctot of Strategy Analytics. One of the main reasons is that V2V and V2I applications can now be achieved with technologies other than DSRC. The LTE Advanced standard is beginning to add proximity sensing, a Wi-Fi-related functionality that could be used for V2V communications."

Qualcomm plan for 500 MHz of in-flight broadband spectrum wins initial FCC nod - FierceBroadbandWireless May 2013
"The FCC unanimously opened for public comment a proposed rulemaking that could result in the auction of 500 MHz of spectrum for a high-speed air-to-ground (ATG) broadband service championed by Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM). However, the spectrum would be shared with incumbent users, including fixed satellite services and certain U.S. government agencies. The FCC said the proposed terrestrial-based ATG-based in-flight broadband service would use spectrum in the 14.0-14.5 GHz band to provide multi-gigabit broadband connectivity for passengers on aircraft flying within the contiguous United States."
