W.L to 20º W.L.. NSS-7 is licensed by the Netherlands. New Skies requests the Commission to: (1) modify the C- and Ku-band Permitted List
to include the NSS-7 space station at 20º W.L. in the 3700-4200 MHz (space-to-Earth), 5925-6425 MHz (Earth-to-space), 11.95-12.2 GHz
(space-to-Earth) frequency bands; (2) grant U.S. market access for NSS-7 at 20º W.L. in the 3625-3700 MHz (space-to-Earth) and 5850-5925
MHz (Earth-to-space) frequency bands; (3) authorize use of NSS-7 for direct-to-home service to, from, and within the United States; and (4)
allow tracking, telemetry, and control operations to, from, and within the United States in the 14496.0 and 14499.0 MHz (vertical polarization,
Earth-to-space), 11451.0 and 11454.0 MHz (horizontal polarization; space-to-Earth), and 4199.5 MHz (vertical polarization, space-to-Earth)
frequencies. New Skies requests waivers of Sections 25.210(a)(1) and (3), 25.210(i), 25.211(a), 25.114(d)(3), 25.114(d)(14)(ii) and 25.283(c) of
