Mr. Brian S. Nelles
Production & Satellite Services, Inc.
4415 Wagon Trail Ave
Las Vegas, NV 89118
Call Sign: E130088
File No.: SES-LIC-20130508-00375
Dear Mr. Nelles:
On May 8, 2013, Production & Satellite Services, Inc. (Production & Satellite Services)
filed the above-captioned license application for a temporary fixed earth station to
communicate with ALSAT satellites in the conventional C-band frequencies of 3700-
4200 MHz (space-to-Earth) and 5925-6425 MHz (Earth-to-space) and in the Ku-band
frequencies of 11.70-12.20 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 14.0-14.5 GHz (Earth-to-space).
For the reasons stated below, we dismiss the application as defective without prejudice to
re-filing.1
Section 25.112(a)(1) of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R. 25.112(a)(1), 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.
The application of Production & Satellite Services contains an internal inconsistency that
renders it unacceptable for filing. Specifically, the EIRP density per carrier levels listed
in item E49 in the Schedule B for emission carrier 4M00G7F in the 5925-6425 MHz and
14.0-14.5 GHz frequency bands are inconsistent. For the 5925-6425 MHz frequency
band, the EIRP density per carrier is listed as 23.28 dBW/4kHz; for the 14.0-14.5 GHz
frequency band, the EIRP density per carrier is listed as 21.67 dBW/4kHz. Our
calculations, based on information provided by Production & Satellite Services elsewhere

If Production & Satellite Services 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 13-1531

in its application,2 indicate that EIRP densities per carrier should be 32.835 dBW/4kHz
and 31.22 dBW/4kHz, respectively.
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(a)(4) of the Commission's rules on delegations of
authority, 47 C.F.R. 0.261(a)(4), we dismiss the application of Production & Satellite
Services without prejudice to re-filing.
Sincerely,
Paul E. Blais
Chief, Systems Analysis Branch
Satellite Division
International Bureau

Production & Satellite Services states that the EIRP per carrier is 62.835 dBW (item 48) and the
carrier is 4MHZ wide (item E47). Accordingly, 62.835 minus 66 dB/4MHz [the carrier] plus 36 dB/4kHz
[the EIRP density unit] equals a maximum EIRP density of 32.835 dBW/4kHz.
