 For the US: Check out APCO. 
Communications systems of public safety and service agencies are
typically built out as Land Mobile Radio (LMR) systems using voice
trunking in 12.5 and 25kHz wide channels in the T band (450 to
512MHz), 700MHz and 800MHz spectrum. These channels are licensed to
public safety and service agencies which typically own the base
station equipment, backhauls and base station real estate and towers
in some cases. This means when commercial carriers are down, these
systems (shall) remain operational (and inter-operational), based on
operational assumptions, redundancy and fallback levels that go beyond
commercial carrier practices. These systems also provide in-building
coverage on defined levels, including tunnels that may or may not be
covered by commercial carriers.

 I was thinking of d-block auction if it ever happens.

 Assume Nextel for push to talk,  not sure if Verizon and Motorola will
incorporate this feature with Ironman.

 Tranches of that freed-up spectrum went to public safety, no
auctioning there, which would be a zero sum game.

2 text views are hard coded.
When click the button the other  shows first  value taken from an xml file
(xml tag value).
When click this again value of text view want to change.The value should be
the second value from the xml file). and so on.
But how this possible???


2. Storing data on the SD card in Froyo - files deleted when upgrading

So this bug appears to still exist on the 2.2 devices that we work
with on the market (Motorola Droid with the latest 2.2 OTA) and even
on the Google API 2.2 SDK emulator. I think that it is wildly
unreasonable that this bug is not reflected in the main documentation

or developer docs at

Would it be possible for the documentation to be updated to reflect
the fact that you should only "write your data in the following
directory: /Android/data/<package_name>/files/ " if you are building
for an android environment which has the bug fixed (not sure if any
such environments currently exist...)

We started using the appropriate directory path (.../Android/data/
packagename/) before 2.2 was rolled out in anticipation of taking
advantage of it, meaning that we can no longer upgrade our application
(from the 2.1 installed version) without completely wrecking the
install, and I feel that it is unfortunate that despite the bug being
identified in July the documentation was not updated to reflect this
