Stargazer said:I agree with Scott, why bid so much on something you would not use. If I were Dish I would wait to bid until close to the end of the auction instead of raising up the bids, but I read where it was an auction that would not end until the bidders quit bidding.

Found it at Mutichannel News.
Sean Mota said:Since you guys seem to know a whole lot more on this subject than me, what the heck will this do for VOOM at 61.5? Please enlighten me... Was Dolan up at the at the 18th round?
bruce said:He is ahead of Charlie(South.com)again every round is a trade off between the two companies.Now what does this do for Voom if DTV Norwich wins or Dish if south.com wins anybodies guess but I like to know.
bruce said:Hey do I get a reward for finding out about Dolan or a least some bromnie points
bruce said:MDS has there own website a bunch of very rich(oil money)people want to start up there own wireless TV broadcast thing like cable or satellite kinda like what northpoint wanted to do but they seem to focus on the rural areas then the big markets but i think that whatever Dolan or Charlie are up to they will want all the licenses not just the top markets they are focusing on right now.
Note that South.com gets a 35% bidding credit for being a minority run company. DTVNorwich makes a bid for $100,000 and South.com makes a bid for $100,000. South.com only has to pay $66,000 if their bid wins.bruce said:Charlie back on top $80 mil vs. $20 mil.
There were no bids, withdrawals, or proactive activity rule waivers in Round 49, therefore, the Multichannel Video Distribution and Data Service Spectrum Auction has closed under the simultaneous stopping rule.
