Receiver designers should be prepared for a more complicated spectral environment
Richard Keegan
It seems unlikely that the FCC would authorize the use of High 10; the interference to all classes of GPS receivers is massive, and there is no way technically to filter it out without causing severe performance problems. If the FCC authorizes the use of Low 10, the responses of manufacturers and users will be to upgrade and replace receivers, obtaining the best performance that we can in this environment...

Land governance
Keith Clifford Bell
This paper discusses the World Bank support for sustainable land reform, focusing on the East Asia Region, with particular emphases on initiatives in land governance, land development investment, tenure security, NSDI, e-government, land tax, spatial planning, disaster response and mitigation.
