As part of its Learn Everything About Reverse-Auctions Now Program (LEARN), the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) hosted a workshop on Friday, November 8, 2013, to discuss unlicensed spectrum issues related to the broadcast television incentive auction proceeding. The workshop focused on the benefits and uses of unlicensed spectrum in the existing and future television bands white spaces and in the guard bands of the new 600 MHz band following the upcoming incentive auction, as well as technical questions associated with proposed unlicensed operations in the 600 MHz band. The FCC issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding the broadcast television incentive auction, including issues relating to unlicensed spectrum, in October, 2012.
