“THE military yesterday defended its right to the 50-54-megahertz band for security purposes during a public hearing on the revised telecom and broadcasting spectrum master plan by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC).
About 500 attended the hearing, of whom half were Air Force, Royal Thai Army, and Royal Thai Navy personnel.
