•EchoStar Satellite Operating Corporation requested modification of its authorization to operate EchoStar 6 at 96.2 degrees west longitude (WL) using 12.2-12.7 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 17.3-17.8 GHz (Earth-to-space) to provide satellite service outside the United States.

From FCC Report SAT-00947: “Actions Taken”

•The FCC International Bureau's Satellite Division granted Intelsat License LLC special temporary authority (STA) for 60 days to continue to provide fixed satellite service on a temporary basis via Intelsat 706 at 157.0 degrees east longitude (EL) using frequency bands 3700-4200 MHz, 10.95-11.2 GHz, 11.45-11.7 GHz, and 12.5-12.75 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 5925-6425 MHz and 14.0-14.5 GHz (Earth-to-space) and to conduct telemetry, tracking and command (TT&C) operations necessary to maintain Intelsat 706 at 157.0 degrees EL using specified C-band frequencies.

•The Satellite Division determined Skybox Imaging, Inc. met the first of three milestone conditions in its license for non-geostationary SkySat-1 and SkySat-2 in the Earth Exploration Satellite Service and may reduce the amount of the bond it filed from $5,000,000 to $2,000,000.
