DA 14-1121

Mr. Chris Mavros

Christian Television Corp., Inc.

6922 142nd Ave.

Largo, FL 33771

Call Sign: E130217

File No.: SES-LIC-20131024-00899

Dear Mr. Mavros:

On October 24, 2013, Christian Television Corporation, Inc. (Christian Television) filed

the above-captioned application for a transmit-receive earth station that would operate with

ALSAT-designated satellites on a center frequency of 6149 MHz. For the reasons indicated

below, we dismiss the application as defective, without prejudice to re-filing.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. Christian Television’s application is inconsistent, incomplete, and does not

substantially comply with the Commission’s rules for the following reasons.

Christian Television did not submit a radiation hazard study, as required by the

underlined text included in item 28 of Form 312 and Section 1.1307(b) of the

Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. § 1.1307(b).

Christian Television did not submit the Frequency Coordination and Interference

Analysis Report as required by Section 25.203(c) of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R.


Christian Television provided a total EIRP for all carriers of 61.9 dBW in item E40 of the

Schedule B; however, this value is inconsistent with our calculated EIRP of 57.94 dBW

that is based on the technical information provided in item E41 and item E38 (10 Log (16

W) + 45.9 dBi = 57.94 dBW).

Christian Television listed the maximum EIRP density per carrier per 4kHz in item E49

of the Schedule B as 61.9 dBW; this value is inconsistent with item E48, 16 dBW

maximum EIRP per Carrier, and item E47, a 3M70G1F emission designator.

While not grounds for dismissal we note that Christian Television indicated in item 26 of

the FCC 312 Main Form that the type of earth station facility is Transmit/Receive; however, it

listed only the transmit frequency in item E43/44 of the Schedule B. If the antenna is used to


If Christian Television re-files an application in which the deficiencies identified in this letter have 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).


Federal Communications Commission DA 14-1121

both transmit and receive, Christian Television must indicate the frequencies used for reception in

any re-filed application.

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 Christian Television’s application without prejudice to re-filing.
