Call Sign: E130121
File No.: SES-LIC-20130703-00569
Dear Mr. Murphy:
On July 3, 2013, you filed above-captioned application for a new license to operate a
Temporary-Fixed earth station in the Ku-Band.1 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.2
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,
contains internal inconsistencies, or does not substantially comply with the Commission's rules.
For the reasons stated below, the application is internally inconsistent, which renders it
unacceptable and subject to dismissal.
Specifically, the application lists the Total EIRP for all carriers in item E40 of Schedule B to
Form 312 as 70.3 dBW. This value is inconsistent with the value of 125 Watts provided for the
Total input power at antenna flange in item E38. Based on a Total input power at antenna flange
of 125 Watts, we calculate that the Total EIRP for all carriers should be 66.86 dBW, not 70.3
dBW.3


1
We note that the application was filed in the name of Robb Murphy, with Flying Cow Satellite
Services, LLC, as a point of contact. In the event the application is re-filed, please confirm whether the
licensee is intended to be Robb Murphy, or whether the intended licensee is, in fact, Flying Cow Satellite
Services, LLC (with Robb Murphy as a point of contact).
2
If you elect to re-file an application in which the deficiencies identified in this letter have been
corrected, but is otherwise identical to the one dismissed, you need not pay an application fee. See 47
C.F.R. 1.1111(d).
3
Total EIRP for all carriers (dBW) = 10 log10 (total input power at antenna flange) + antenna transmit
gain. Therefore, Total EIRP for all carriers (dBW) = 10 log10 (125W) + 45.9 dBi = 66.86 dBW. We also
note that if the application is re-filed with a corrected Total EIRP for all carriers, items E48 and E49 of
Schedule B must be corrected to correspond with the correct Total EIRP for all carriers.

Federal Communications Commission

DA 13-1749

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
Chief, Systems Analysis Branch
Satellite Division
