Who Reads SpectrumTalk?

It has been about a year since we started tracking the location of our readers using the free services of ClustrMaps .  About is a map of where viewers have been coming from.

US readers are concentrated on the East Coast, but there are several 1000+ points west of the Mississippi.

At left is the tabular data for the top 30  countries.  I guess my friends in Japan must be regular readers because of the 81 hits from there.  The relative high rank of the Cayman Islands is surprising.  Either a lot of people are taking breaks from beach vacations or the offshore bankers there are looking for this material.

In any, thank you faithful readers and best wishes for the Holiday Season!

Cayman Islands Mystery Solved!

I have a feeling that I was responsible for much of your Cayman readership in 2008-2009. I find your blog to be extremely informative and a great way to keep abreast of spectrum-related matters in the US. It is surprising to see that, despite the vast difference in size between the Cayman Islands and the US, we are facing many of the same issues. Keep up the good work!

P.S. One of these days, I would love to hear your thoughts on the concept of "harmful interference" in the US, and specifically whether, and to what extent, it includes blanketing interference. You made several references to the definition of "harmful interference" over the past few months, but I don't recall reading anything specific on this topic. In Cayman, the ICTA (the FCC's counterpart) has ruled that harmful interference includes blanketing interference, but this determination is currently being litigated in the Cayman courts.

One suggestion. For some reasons your RSS feed never has titles in it. The title fields is done busted. You might get more readers if your RSS feed was working properly - with the title field working properly.
