S2849
Hughes Network Systems, LLC
On August 31, 2012, Hughes Network Systems, LLC declined its August 1, 2012 market access grant for service to the U.S. market using a
proposed Ka-band and V-band geostationary satellite orbit fixed-satellite service space station, Jupiter 91W (Call Sign S2849), that would
operate under the authority of the United Kingdom at the 90.9º W.L. orbital location. Letter from Stephen D. Baruch, Counsel for Hughes,
to Marlene H. Dortch, Secretary, FCC (dated August 31, 2012). The market access grant specified the 28.35-28.6 GHz, 29.25-29.5 GHz,
and 29.5-30.0 GHz frequency bands (Earth-to-space) and the 18.3-18.8 GHz and 19.7-20.2 GHz frequency bands (space-to-Earth) on a
primary basis, and the 47.2-50.2 GHz (Earth-to-space) and 39.0-42.0 GHz (space-to-Earth) frequency bands on a co-primary basis. The
market access grant also specified the 18.8-19.3 GHz (space-to-Earth) frequency bands on a non-interference basis, and the 28.6-29.1 GHz
(Earth-to-space) frequency bands on a secondary basis. These frequencies at the 90.9° W.L. orbital location are now available for
reassignment pursuant to the Commission's first-come, first-served licensing process effective 2:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, September 11,
2012. At that time, applicants may file applications for new space stations, market access by non-U.S. licensed space stations, modifications
to licensed space stations, or amendments to pending applications taking this announcement into account. Applications for the spectrum
filed prior to this date and time will be dismissed as premature without prejudice to refiling.
