Airwave Auction

NPR's Jackie Northam reports that the FCC is auctioning off part of the airwave spectrum. The band that's up for grabs is intended for wireless communication providers, and should mean stronger and clearer connections for cell phone users. It will also give the industry room to develop the next generation of wireless services.
