E S2401
Intelsat License LLC
Date Filed:
10/21/2011 10:20:29:91000
Special Temporary Authority
Intelsat License LLC requests special temporary authority for a period of 180 days to conduct telemetry, tracking, and telecommand operations
necessary to drift the Intelsat 706 space station from its current orbital position of 72.0° E.L. to the 47.5º E.L. orbital position and to maintain
Intelsat 706 at the 47.5º E.L. orbital position using the following center frequencies: 3947.5 MHz, 3948.0 MHz , 3952.5 MHz, and 3952.0 MHz
(Right-hand Circular Polarization, space-to-Earth); and 6173.7 MHz and 6176.3 (Left-hand Circular Polarization, Earth-to-space). Additionally,
Intelsat seeks to operate Intelsat 706 temporarily at 47.5º E.L., in inclined orbit, using the 3700-4200 MHz (space-to-Earth), 5925-6425 MHz
(Earth-to-space), 10.95-11.2 GHz (space-to-Earth), 11.45-11.7 GHz (space-to-Earth), 12.5-12.75 GHz (space-to-Earth), and 14.0-14.5 GHz
(Earth-to-space) frequency bands. Intelsat requests waiver of Sections 25.202(g), 25.210(a)(1), 25.210(i), and 25.211(a) of the Commission's
rules in connection with its request.



New Skies Satellites B.V.
We are correcting the Public Notice accepting for filing New Skies Satellites B.V.'s application to modify the terms of grant of U.S. market
access for its NSS-806 space station at the 40.5º W.L. orbital location. In that Public Notice, Report No. SAT-00819, we stated that, "New
Skies states that NSS-806 will provide direct-to-home services in the 11.70-11.95 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 14.25-14.50 GHz
(Earth-to-space) frequency bands." Instead, that sentence should read, "New Skies states that the steerable Ku-band spot beam on NSS-806
will operate in the 11.70-11.95 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 14.25-14.50 GHz (Earth-to-space) frequency bands." This correction does not
change the date on which comments regarding the modification application are due. Comments are due on December 5, 2011.
For more information concerning this Notice, contact the Satellite Division at 202-418-0719; TTY 202-418-2555.
