Call Sign: E130025
File No.: SES-REG-20130130-00130
Dear Mr. Benedict:
On January 30, 2013, CBS Communications Services Inc. (CBS) filed the above-captioned
application for registration of a new fixed-satellite service receive-only earth station in the 3700-
4200 MHz (space-to-Earth) frequency band. For the reason below, we dismiss the application as
defective, without prejudice to refiling.1
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, that
contains internal inconsistencies, or that does not substantially comply with the Commission's
rules. CBS did not submit a frequency coordination report as required by Section 25.203(c) of
the Commission’s rules,2 and its application is therefore incomplete.
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 CBS’ application without prejudice to refiling.
Paul E. Blais
Chief, Systems Analysis Branch
If CBS refiles an application in which the deficiency identified in this letter has been corrected, but is
otherwise identical to the one dismissed, it need not pay an application fee. See
47 C.F.R. § 1.1111(d).
