SAT-AMD-20130614-00085

S2874
EchoStar Satellite Operating Corporation
On September 13, 2013, the Satellite Division designated the above-captioned proceeding as "permit-but-disclose" for purposes of the
Commission's rules governing ex parte communications. By letter filed on September 4, 2013, EchoStar Satellite Operating Corporation
requested that the designation for this proceeding be changed from restricted to "permit-but-disclose" for purposes of ex parte
communications. DIRECTV Latin America opposed EchoStar's request by a letter filed on September 6, 2013. DIRECTV Latin America
argues that EchoStar's application fails to raise issues of broadly applicable policy rather than the rights and responsibilities of specific
parties" and thus does not warrant the change in ex parte designation requested by EchoStar. As indicated in the associated public notice
accepting EchoStar's application for filing, EchoStar's application does raise issues of broadly applicable policy under the Communications
Act of 1934, as amended, and International Telecommunication Union Radio Regulations. Thus, we designate IBFS File No.
SAT-AMD-20130614-00085, as "permit-but-disclose," effective September 13, 2013. See 47 C.F.R. 1.1200(a), 1.1206 and
1.1208 note 2.
