Wireless Auction Bidding Under Probe: The Federal Communications Commission said it is investigating whether one or more bidders may have misrepresented themselves in recent auctions of licenses offering interactive television over the airwaves.

The licenses are for a new service that will let people send and receive a variety of information--faxes, messages and pages--without being tethered to phone lines. Bids in the opening round Wednesday totaled $186 million, compared to the $103.

Some concerns varied sharply by ethnic group.
