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.
Paul E. Blais
Chief, Systems Analysis Branch
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).
