Satellite Update for May 30, 2013
From FCC Report SAT-00950M: “Satellite Space Applications Accepted for Filing:”

• EchoStar Satellite Operating Corporation requested special temporary authority (STA) for 180 days to continue to conduct telemetry, tracking and command (TT&C) operations necessary to maintain DBS satellite EchoStar 3 as an in-orbit spare at 61.8 degrees west longitude (WL) using 12.201 GHz, 12.203 GHz, and 12.699 GHz (space-to-Earth); and 17.3015 GHz (Earth-to-space).

From FCC Report SAT-00951: “Actions Taken:”

• The FCC International Bureau's Satellite Division granted, with conditions, the request from SES Americom to modify the authorization for AMC-2 to specify operations at 80.85 degrees WL instead of the previously authorized 19.2 degrees east longitude (EL) orbital location and to provide fixed satellite service (FSS), including direct-to-home services, from that location to South America using 3700-4200 MHz and 11.7-12.2 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 5925-6425 MHz and 14.0-14.5 GHz (Earth-to-space). SES Americom was also granted authority to conduct TT&C operations necessary to drift AMC-2 from 19.2 degrees EL to 80.85 degrees WL and to maintain it at that location using specified C-band frequencies. (Note: This is an FCC correction to the AMC-2 entry in Report SAT-00948.)

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
