DIRECTV Enterprises, LLC
DIRECTV Enterprises, LLC, requests a modification of its operating authority so that it can reorient the DIRECTV 5 satellite, located at the
110.1° W.L. orbital location and operating in the 12.2-12.7 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 17.3-17.8 GHz (Earth-to-space) frequency bands, such that
Puerto Rico falls within a portion of the DIRECTV 5 downlink beam with higher power levels. DIRECTV seeks a waiver of Section 25.148 (c)
of the Commission's rules in connection with its request.
LightSquared Subsidiary LLC, Debtor-in-Possession
LightSquared Subsidiary LLC seeks to modify its authorization for the MSAT-2 space station at 103.3° W.L. by extending the license term by

station, SkyTerra-1, as well as to provide a backup for that satellite. MSAT-2 operates service links to customers in the following frequency
bands: 1530-1544 MHz (space-to-Earth), 1545-1559 MHz (space-to-Earth), 1631.5-1645.5 MHz (Earth-to-space), and 1646.5-1660.5 MHz
(Earth-to-space). Feederlinks for MSAT-2 are in the 13.0-13.15 GHz and 13.20-13.25 GHz (Earth-to-space) frequency bands. Telemetry,
tracking, and command operations use the following center frequencies: 11.7005 GHz and 11.701 GHz (space-to-Earth); 14.0005 GHz and

W.L. using the 3700 - 4200 MHz (space-to-Earth), 5925 - 6425 MHz (Earth-to-space), 11.45 - 11.70 GHz (space-to-Earth), 11.7 - 12.2 GHz
(space-to-Earth), and 14.0 - 14.5 GHz (Earth-to-space) frequency bands; and (2) continue to conduct telemetry, tracking, and command
functions necessary to maintain the Intelsat 9 space station at its temporarily authorized location of 43.10° W.L. using the center frequencies of
11700.5 MHz and 11702.5 MHz (space-to-Earth) and 14494.5 MHz and 14000.5 MHz (Earth-to-space). Intelsat seeks waivers of Section
