Satellite Update - Aug. 27, 2009
From FCC Report SAT-00626 [PDF]:
  • • EchoStar filed an application for authority to launch and operate a C-band geostationary orbit satellite at 84.9 degrees west longitude (WL). EchoStar requested a waiver of the rules to the extent necessary to allow it to file the application without information relating to specific telemetry, tracking and command (TT&C) frequencies. The TT&C frequencies would be at the edges of the 6/4 GHz band; however, as EchoStar has yet to select a satellite manufacturer the exact frequencies are unknown.
  • • Hispamar Satellites S.A. filed a petition for declaratory rule making to add its Amazonas-2 satellite to the FCC Permitted Space Station List. Hispamar seeks to access the U.S. market using conventional Ku-band frequencies. The Amazonas-2 satellite is to be located at 61 degrees WL.
From FCC Report SAT-00627 [PDF]:
  • • The FCC granted ViaSat's request for market access to the United States using ViaSat-IOM operating under a license from the Isle of Man at 115.1 degrees WL. ViaSat is allowed to provide fixed satellite services to the United States using the 28.35-28.6 GHz and 29.5-30.0 GHz bands (Earth-to-space) and the 18.3-18.8 GHz and 19.7-20.2 GHz bands (space-to-Earth). ViaSat is also allowed to use 18.8-19.3 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 28.10-28.35 GHz and 28.6-29.1 GHz (Earth-to-space) on a secondary basis.
