Re: Call Sign E060244

File No.: SES-MOD-20140613-00518

Dear Ms. McClure:

On June 13, 2014, L3 Communications IEC (L3 Comm) filed the above-captioned application to

add an antenna to its fixed earth station in Point Magu, CA. Pursuant to Section 25.112(a)(1) of

the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. § 25.112 (a)(1), we dismiss the application as defective

without prejudice to refiling.1

Section 25.112(a) of the Commission’s rules requires the Commission to return, as unacceptable

for filing, any earth station application that is not substantially complete, contains internal

inconsistencies, or does not substantially comply with the Commission’s rules. We find the L3

Comm application is not substantially complete because it does not include a radiation hazard

study for the new antenna proposed, as required by the underlined text included in question 28 of

Form 312 and Section 1.1307(b) of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. § 1.1307(b).

While not a ground for dismissal, it is noted that the 11 GHz frequency that L3 Comm provided

in items E41/42 of Form 312-Schedule B for the antenna receive gain is not within the requested

frequency range of 11.7-12.2 GHz.

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 L3 Communications IEC’s application without prejudice to refiling.

If L3 Comm 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).
