Call Sign: E120089
File No.: SES-LIC-20120521-00455
Dear Mr. Mavros:
On May 21, 2012, Christian Television Corporation, Inc. (Christian Television) filed the above-
captioned application for a new fixed earth station. Pursuant to Section 25.112(a)(1) of the
Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R. 25.112(a)(1), we dismiss the application as defective without
prejudice to re-filing.1
Section 25.112(a) of the Commission's rules requires the Commission to return, as unacceptable
for filing, any earth station application that is not substantially complete, contains internal
inconsistencies, or does not substantially comply with the Commission's rules.2 For the reasons
set forth below, we find the application of Christian Television unacceptable for filing.

Applicants for new transmitting facilities are required to include a radiation hazard study
with their applications.3 Christian Television did not submit the required radiation hazard
study.

In items E43/44 of Schedule B to FCC Form 312, Christian Television lists the 6425-
9525 MHz frequency band as desired frequencies of operation. Fixed-Satellite Service is
not authorized throughout that frequency band, and the requested space station point of
communication, AMC-1, is only authorized to operate in the 5925- 6425 MHz frequency
band.

In item 47 of Schedule B to FCC Form 312, Christian Television lists an emission
designator as "3m7oglf." That emission designator does not comply with the format
prescribed by Section 2.201 of the Commission's rules.4

If Christian Television re-files an application identical to the one dismissed, with the exception of
supplying the corrected information, it need not pay an application fee. See 47 C.F.R. 1.1111(d).

Federal Communications Commission DA 13-1462

We also note that Christian Television did not submit a current frequency coordination report. If
Christian Television re-files an application it must file a coordination report that is less than six
months old.5
Accordingly, pursuant to Section 25.112(a)(1) of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.
25.112(a)(1), and Section 0.261 of the Commission's rules on delegations of authority, 47 C.F.R.
0.261, we dismiss the application, without prejudice to re-filing.
Sincerely,
Paul E. Blais

6 The FCC has stated that earth station applications must include a Frequency Coordination and
Interference Analysis Report that are not older than 6 months from the date the earth station application is
filed. See "Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): Processing of Earth Station Applications," Question 15,
available online at http://transition.fcc.gov/ib/sd/esa/faq.html#FAQ15. See also 47 C.F.R. 25.134(d)

completed).
