FCC Releases White Spaces Order

They voted in favor of the white spaces order on November 4, but it is very common for the Commission to finish hashing out the details of orders after they have approved them (odd, but true). The FCC has finally released the full text of the order, which includes a 100mw power limit for personal/portable devices (40mw on adjacent channels) and 4w for fixed devices. I believe this all means good things for white space devices (those were the numbers many advocates were suggesting), but I'll update this post as more coverage emerges.
