Satellite Update - Feb. 20, 2009
From FCC Report SAT-00579:

Inmarsat requested modification of the “ISAT List” to reflect the resumed L-band operations of the Inmarsat 3F4 satellite at 54 degrees west longitude (WL). The FCC noted that the description of the application associated with an application by Intelsat North America for authority to construct, launch and operated a fixed satellite service satellite at 58.1 degrees WL inadvertently omitted the 13.75-14.0 GHz frequency band (Earth-to-space) as part of the request.

PanAmSat Licensee Corporation received special temporary authority, beginning Feb. 18, 2009, to perform tracking, telemetry and command functions with the SBS-6 satellite and to execute end-of-life maneuvers by boosting the satellite to a disposal orbit above the geostationary orbit.

New Skies Satellite's NSS-9 space station at 177 degrees WL was added to the FCC's Permitted Space Station List. Each U.S.-licensed earth station with “ALSAT” designated as a point of communication may provide fixed satellite services in the 5925-6425 MHz (Earth-to-space) and 3700-4200 MHz (space-to-Earth) frequency bands to, from, or within the United States by accessing NSS-9 at 177 degrees WL.

See FCC Report SAT-00580 for a complete list of FCC International Bureau satellite policy branch actions released last week.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
