Except for a small sliver of 700 and 800mhz the cell companies will end up owning everything above 590mhz. They have already had great success with ““5G”” in 600mhz.
I expect sooner or later Hams will get pushed out of 400mhz too. Public safety is running out of room in the 700/800mhz band.
I have to say you are correct, the spectrum is too valuable to the FCC and we don't use it hard enough to lay claim to it.
They make billions of $$ off of selling the air waves and there is little we can do to stop it.
Big money talks and hams walk
Ham radio is not a valuable service to the FCC anymore, we are just a bunch of old guys yacking on radio.
We figured that out when Cal Fire said they would no longer support ham radio out here as it is not needed anymore.
Highest bid wins.
