Satellite Update - Oct. 3, 2008
From FCC Report SAT-00556:

DirecTV Enterprises LLC asked the FCC to amend its pending application to construct, launch and operate a 17/24 GHz broadcasting satellite service (BSS) space station at 107 degrees west longitude (WL). The amendment would substitute Pegasus Development DBS Corporation as the application and modify technical parameters to match those in Pegasus' application for a BSS satellite at the same location. DirecTV said this amendment relates to a broader agreement between and among DirecTV, Intelsat North America LLC and Pegasus regarding applications at nominal orbital locations of 91, 99 and 107 degrees WL.

The Report also lists an application from Intelsat North America LLC requesting authority to operate its authorized Galaxy 25 satellite at 93.10 degrees WL instead of its currently assigned location at 97.0 degrees WL. Intelsat said it would continue to operate Galaxy 25 in the conventional C and Ku-bands at the new location.

From FCC Report SAT-00557.

Intelsat North America LLC received special temporary authority (STA) to operate the Galaxy 18 C-band satellite at 145.5 degrees WL for in-orbit testing. The STA, which is effective for 30 days starting Oct. 6, also allows telemetry, tracking and control operations.
