What to you people think? Will LS2 get a second shot? or is this the death throes of a dying company?

I think LS2's cries are justified, but are probably falling on deaf ears.

On a side note... Given the trouble that LS2 has had if this spectrum goes back up for sale who would buy it? Is there anything other than GPS that it could be used for?

No, I think that any conspiracy theories are unfounded. GPS manufacturers have nothing to gain nor lose if LightSquared truly can ameliorate the ATC interference issues. But this is a legitimate and serious technical problem. And if LightSquared cannot prevent interference beyond a shadow of a doubt, then LightSquared has no choice but to abide by the original regulations of its L band satellite spectrum.

The FCC has allowed the public to voice their opinions on the matter; if you would like, please voice your opinion in support of LS. The FCC is asking for public opinions.
