BoatUS: Navigation System Concerns Still an Issue with Latest Move by LightSquared

FCC Extends Public Comment Period Through March 16

ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 1, 2012 – Just a few days ago, Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) cautioned that America’s boaters weren't out of the woods just yet with the possibility of the country’s sole electronic navigation system failing as the result of radio signal interference issues from a newly proposed cellular broadband network, LightSquared. Yesterday, the FCC green-lighted an extension of the public comment period to the network’s proposed builder, LightSquared, to allow comments through March 16. BoatUS continues to urge boaters and all users of GPS to submit comments to the FCC to ensure the nation’s system of global positioning devices keeps Americans safely on course.
