Sometimes its the 'we' that we worry about...

Oh, I donno, it protected us from Nukes from Russia for quite a
while...

China just shot one of theirs down last month.  And created
10,000 bits of shrapnel that endangers all of our satellites.
Every onve of those 10,000 bits has to be tracked along with our
HAM satellites to keep things clean up there in orbit...

As one of the 'we', I don't my taxes to pay for a new-re-build
of a several hundred million dollar facility, that has been in
place and working fine for a very long time.

No, we have access to it on a secondary shared basis.  We should
be thankful for that and work with them to minimize our
interference to them.

They actually have very little.  The biggest waste of spectrum
is TV.  What a wasteland.
 
I think patience and working it out is the best way to resolve
spectrum issues, not shooting from the hip with all barrels
blazing...
