Again, it's worth reading the FCC's NPRM and not the ARRL's account
since it excluded the satellite subband *and* the weak signal portions
of the band.

99 percent of the rest of the country doesn't suffer from SoCal's
congestion problem, radio or otherwise...  The FCC mentioned that it
should be subject to voluntary bandplans.
