DISH Operating L.L.C.
Special Temporary Authority
EchoStar Satellite Operating L.L.C. requests special temporary authority for 180 days to operate its EchoStar 1 satellite, which operates in the
12.2-12.7 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 17.3-17.8 GHz (Earth-to-space) frequency bands, at the 77.15º W.L. orbital location. The requested
operations are pursuant to agreements between and among EchoStar, QuetzSat S. de R.L. de C.V., SES Latin America, S.A., and SES S.A. In its
request, EchoStar states that QuetzSat has confirmed that the Mexican Administration does not object to interim operation of EchoStar 1 as a
U.S.-licensed satellite providing service to the United States from the 77.15º W.L. orbital location, provided that the satellite operates in
conformance with the technical characteristics in QuetzSat's broadcasting satellite service concession from the Mexican Administration for
operation at the 77º W.L. orbital location. EchoStar seeks a waiver of Section 25.202(g) of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R. § 25.202(g), to
conduct telemetry, tracking, and command operations at the 77.15º W.L. orbital location in conventional C-band frequencies (specifically,
5926-5927 MHz and 6423-6424 MHz for command, and 4198.4-4198.6 and 4199.4-4199.6 MHz for telemetry and tracking).
