Satellite space station at the 118.9° W.L. orbital location using DBS channels 1-21 in the 12.2-12.7 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 17.3-17.8 GHz
(Earth-to-space) frequency bands. This authority currently expires on April 22, 2012. DISH is operating EchoStar 7 at 118.8° W.L., rather than

any extension granted be applied to operations at that location.
