wheeler-testifyingFCC Chairman Tom Wheeler isn’t giving it up, meaning his thoughts on the upcoming spectrum auction, at least not yet.

After the FCC meeting on Thursday, several reporters tried to get him to say how long he thinks the auction might last and how many television owners would participate.

The application have yet to be reviewed, he said, noting the agency has a team of people working on it.

“Broadcasters have until March 29 to change their minds,” said Wheeler. “We’re watching that process to see how it develops.”
