Ofcom preps 'digital dividend' selloff, kick in the (foot)balls for Sky


Couldn't agree more

As an ex technical investigations officer at Ofcom I can only concur with this. They chose to make deep redundancies in their spectrum management field force over the last few years, knowing the risk and meaning that there's literally only a handful left who are either experienced or competent. Most couldn't find their arse with both hands, let alone track down problem transmitters. You only have to listen to the flourishing number of pirate radio stations, especially in London, to know how seriously they take their spectrum management responsibilities. The Radiocommunications Agency should never have been subsumed into the Ofcom empire.
