Washington, DC - The following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO David K. Rehr regarding today's Federal Communications Commission's public notice regarding unlicensed device use in the broadcast television spectrum band:
"NAB has been working diligently with the Senate Commerce Committee on the unlicensed devices issue, along with the FCC. We are pleased the FCC has taken the sensible position of ensuring that these devices will be tested rigorously, and that no marketplace introduction will occur until after broadcasters complete a successful transition to digital television."
The National Association of Broadcasters is a trade association that advocates on behalf of more than 8,300 free, local radio and television stations and also broadcast networks before Congress, the Federal Communications Commission and the Courts. Information about NAB can be found at www.nab.org.
