Intelsat License LLC seeks to modify its authorization for the Galaxy 11 space station to specify operations at 44.8° W.L., instead of at Galaxy
11's currently authorized location of 55.5° W.L. Intelsat requests authority to provide Fixed-Satellite Service at 44.8° W.L. in the 10.95-11.2 GHz
(space-to-Earth), 11.7-12.2 GHz (space-to-Earth), and 13.75-14.5 GHz (Earth-to-space) frequency bands. Intelsat also seeks authority to conduct
telemetry, tracking, and command operations using the following center frequencies: 11.701 GHz and 11.702 GHz (space-to-Earth); and 14.0005
GHz and 14.4985 GHz (Earth-to-space). Further, Intelsat asks that the waivers of Sections 25.114(d)(14)(ii) and 25.283(c) previously granted to
Galaxy 11 at the 55.5° W.L. orbital location continue to apply to its operations at the 44.8° W.L. orbital location. In addition, Intelsat requests
waivers of Footnote 2 of Section 25.202(a)(1), Footnote NG104 of Section 2.106, Section 25.114(d)(3), and conditional waivers of Sections
25.164(a) and 25.165.

76.80° W.L. on DBS channels 1-32 with feeder links in the 17.3-17.8 GHz (Earth-to-space) frequency band and service links in the 12.2-12.7
GHz (space-to-Earth) frequency band. Telemetry, tracking, and command operations will be provided using the following center frequencies:
17305.0 MHz (Earth-to-space); and 12203.0 MHz, 12204.0 MHz (space-to-Earth).
