Satellite Update—Dec. 23, 2009
Globalstar Licensee LLC filed a request for a waiver to continue to operate its Big LEO (Low-Earth-Orbiting) satellite system in countries and regions served by five specified gateway earth stations located outside the United States, using frequencies between 1618.725 MHz and 1621.35 MHz. These frequencies were reassigned to Iridium Constellation LLC in an FCC Order of Modification released on Oct. 15, 2008. Globalstar requested special temporary authority to use these earth stations and frequencies for 180 days pending FCC action on the waiver request. From FCC Report SAT-00571.

Last week the FCC granted, with conditions, an application from Pegasus Development DBS Corporation to construct, launch and operate a 17/24 GHz broadcasting satellite service (BSS) space station at 115 degrees West Longitude (WL) using 17.3-17.8 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 24.75-25.25 (Earth-to-space). Operation in the 17.7-17.8 GHz band is limited to international service only. The FCC International Bureau’s Satellite Division determined ORBIMAGE License Corp has met the launch and operation milestone associated with its reservation of spectrum in the X-band for the GeoEye-1 satellite, formerly known as OrbView-5.These actions are listed in FCC Report SAT-00570.
