Osteen Supports White Spaces Bill


Author: John Eggerton

Media mega-preacher Joel Osteen has added his voice to those backing a bill that would give wireless microphone users protected status in the Federal Communications Commission's new "white spaces" database.

When it agreed to allow unlicensed devices to share the broadcast band with DTV stations, it made that contingent upon creating a database protecting incumbent TV stations. Wireless mics also use that band, and a bill (H.R. 4353 ) introduced by Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL), would allow a broad category of professional users including churches, theaters and stadiums to register as well.
