ACMA Plots Amateur Radio Band Harvest for LTE:

The problem is if we don't use these frequencies they become easy targets for frequency grabs. It's like hams that apply for repeater pairs with the coordinator and never setup a repeater. Sorry a repeater at your house with an antenna strapped to your chimney 50ft above sea level doesn't count.

The issue is larger channel sizes like 10 MHz or 20 MHz are much more useful for providing mobile data service. Hams might be able to get narrow secondary allocations in the guard bands between channels, especially for EME with limits on EiRP at low angles to the horizon. For 10 MHz channels, LTE uses 600 subcarriers at 15 kHz spacing for a signal bandwidth of about 9 MHz. However, broadband noise and distortion products from all the wireless data transmitters might make it impossible to receive weak ham signals.
