The failure of the "D Block" auction has prompted both the Federal Communications Commission and Congress to examine the terms and conditions for use of the spectrum. Will policy goals concerning public safety communications be re-evaluated? Will conditions on the spectrum be altered to ensure the spectrum is attractive to bidders in a possible re-auction? On Tuesday, April 29th, Declan Ganley, CEO of Rivada Networks, discussed these and related issues at a CEO Luncheon event hosted by The Progress & Freedom Foundation.

The program featured a keynote speech by Declan Ganley, Chairman and CEO of Rivada Networks. After his remarks, Ganley responded to questions posed by a distinguished panel of spectrum and public safety experts. Analysts on the event panel were Michael Calabrese, Vice President and Director of the Wireless Future Program at New American Foundation; Hiram "Art" Contreras, Advisor to Mobile Future; and Paul Glenchur, Senior Vice President and Telecom Services Analyst at Stanford Washington Research Group. The seminar was moderated by Ken Ferree, President of The Progress & Freedom Foundation.
