RE: Call Sign E130001
File No.: SES-LIC-20121231-01134
Dear Mr. Fitch:
On December 31, 2012, Harris Corporation (Harris) filed the above-captioned application for
authority to operate a new Fixed-Satellite Service earth station using a 3.8-meter antenna in the
C-band (3700-4200 MHz and 5925-6425 MHz). For the reasons stated below, we dismiss the
application as defective without prejudice to refiling.1
Section 25.112 of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. § 25.112, requires the Commission to
return, as unacceptable for filing, any earth station application that is not substantially complete,
that contains internal inconsistencies, or that does not substantially comply with the
Commission’s rules. Harris’s application contains internal inconsistencies, which renders it
unacceptable and subject to dismissal.
In response to item E49 of Schedule B, Harris lists a maximum effective isotropic radiated power
(EIRP) density per carrier for emission designator 96K0G7W (E47) as 31.6 dBW/4kHz (E49).
This value is inconsistent with our calculation of 38.9 dBW/4kHz, which is based on the
Schedule B data provided by Harris.2 Given this inconsistency, we cannot determine the proposed
emission power and are unable to process the application.
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 Harris’s application without prejudice to refiling.
Chief, Systems Analysis Branch
If Harris refiles 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).
Our calculation is based on the following information supplied in Harris’s application: Total Input
Power to antenna flange - 4.65 Watts (E38); Antenna Transmit Gain - 46.0 dBi at 6.17 GHz (E41); and
Emission Designator 96K0G7W (E47).
