DA 12-526

April 2, 2012
Mr. Tex Meyer
Broadcast Company of the Americas, LLC
6160 Cornerstone Court E.
Suite 100
San Diego, CA 92121
Call Sign: E110185
File No.: SES-LIC-20111220-01478
Dear Mr. Meyer:
On December 20, 2011, Broadcast Company of the Americas, LLC (BCOA) filed the above-captioned
application for a new license to operate a transmit/receive fixed earth station in the conventional C-band.1 We
dismiss this application for the reasons set forth below.
In response to Item E49 on FCC Form 312, Schedule B, Item E49, BCOA indicates that the maximum EIRP
density per carrier for emission designator 76K8G7W is 31.82 dBW/4kHz. This is inconsistent with BCOA’s
response to Item E48 on Schedule B, which lists the maximum EIRP per carrier as 55.9 dBw. Our
calculations indicate that a maximum EIRP per carrier value of 55.9 dBW over a 76.8 kilohertz carrier
bandwidth would result in a maximum EIRP density per carrier of 43.07 dBW/4kHz. We note that the
coordination report submitted with BCOA’s application also contains these inconsistent values. Further,
BCOA states, in an exhibit to its application, that the proposed earth station would use a maximum EIRP
density of 30.16 dBW/4KHz.2 Given these inconsistencies, we cannot determine the proposed emission
power of the proposed earth station.
Accordingly, pursuant to Section 0.261 of the Commission’s rules on delegations of authority, 47 C.F.R.
§0.261, we dismiss the above-captioned application without prejudice to refiling.3

1 The conventional C-band encompasses the 3700-4200 MHz and 5925-6425 MHz frequency bands.

3 If BCOA refiles an application identical to the one dismissed, with the exception of supplying the corrected
information, it need not pay an application fee. See 47 C.F.R. § 1.1111(d).
