In the states ham bands ate under constant pressure from commercial intetests on the FCC for reallocation. Having those birds up there proves the need and helps stave off reallocation. If we leabe them unused they will go away. If I could launch a cube sat for my experimental interests it would use ham bands and may only send back tlm. So am I prohibited from that?

Or maybe they will be reallocated to them.
The chances of which increases, with every satellite launched that uses the amateur bands but carries no amateur payload.
They use them more than we do.
Whose fault is that?
Maybe hams in your world own frequencies but in tge USA their use is
a privilege not a right.
In my world, hams have a RIGHT to properly use the frequencies that are ALLOCATED for their use. And a RIGHT to complain when they are misused.
