Ka-band Permitted Space Station List

Pursuant to the Ka-Band Permitted List Order, FCC 10-20 (released Jan. 25, 2009), a U.S.-licensed earth station with an ALSAT license is permitted to access any space station on this list, provided that it complies with the Commission's technical requirements, and operates under the conditions on its license and set forth in the Orders cited below. Nothing in the Ka-Band Permitted List Order, however, eliminates the need for an earth station operator or space station operator to request authority to make technical changes to its facility where those changes require prior Commission approval under Sections 25.117 and 25.118 of the Commission's rules. See Ka-Band Permitted List Order at para. 12 n.30.

The information in this website is an unofficial list of conditions applicable to ALSAT-designated Ka-band earth stations communicating with the satellites listed below, provided for the convenience of Ka-band earth station operators with ALSAT licenses. It is not necessarily an exhaustive list of all applicable conditions. Ka-band earth station operators are advised that nothing in this website affects in any way the requirements in their earth station licenses and the Orders cited below adding satellites to the Ka-band Permitted Space Station List.
