>> >The public does not own those frequencies,

Yes it does; that is the entire basis of the FCC's regulation; the
broadcast spectrum -- all of it -- is a commons, belonging to the
public as a whole.  Licensees receive only a right to use it; they do
not have any legal entitlement to, much less ownership of, spectrum
beyond that given them by the public through the FCC.<<

Then show me where, at law, such public ownership is specifically spelled out...and if not, how the Tenth Amendment applies.
