Dear Mr. Winsett:
On October 24, 2013, Christian Television of Palm Beach County, Inc. (Christian
Television) filed the above-captioned application for a license to operate a new transmit-only
fixed earth station in West Palm Beach, Florida. The earth station, equipped with a Comtech 4.1-
meter OffSat antenna, would operate in the 6344 -6348 MHz frequency band with the Intelsat 16
satellite at the 58.1° W.L. orbital location. 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 contains internal inconsistencies that
render it unacceptable and subject to dismissal. The deficiencies are:
Item E40 of the Schedule B lists the Total EIRP for all carriers as 64.9 dBW; however,
this value is inconsistent with our calculated EIRP of 58.68 dBW that is based on the
technical information provided in item E41 and item E38 (10 log (19W) + 45.9 dBi =
Item E48 of the Schedule B, which lists the maximum EIRP per carrier for emission
2M50G7D as - 9.0 dBW, is inconsistent with the value listed in item E49 and appears to
be low for operations with satellites.
While not grounds for dismissal, we note that the Frequency Coordination exhibit states
that additional emission designators, 3M0G1F and 3M0G7D, were coordinated, but these
emissions are not listed in Schedule B. Therefore, if Christian Television intends to use these
additional emission carriers, it must file an application to modify its authorization that lists these
emissions and provides a new frequency coordination study.
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.
Federal Communications Commission DA 14-1120
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.
