FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION

47 CFR Part 25

[IB Docket No. 06-123; FCC 10-188]

The Establishment of Policies and Service Rules for the
Broadcasting-Satellite Service

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.

———————————————————————–

SUMMARY: In this document, the Federal Communications Commission denies
two petitions for reconsideration filed by Telesat Canada (Telesat)
challenging certain aspects of the processing and technical rules
adopted for the 17/24 GHz Broadcasting-Satellite Service (BSS).
Specifically, we decline to adopt Telesat’s proposal that the Federal
Communications Commission (Commission) impose additional blanket
international coordination licensing conditions on U.S.-licensed 17/24
GHz BSS space stations. Finally, we are not persuaded by Telesat’s
argument that the Commission’s technical and procedural rules
concerning assignment of orbital locations and frequencies are
inapplicable to requests filed by non-U.S.-licensed 17/24 GHz BSS space
stations operators seeking to access the market in the United States.

DATES: Effective April 15, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Andrea Kelly, Satellite Division,
International Bureau, at 202-418-7877 or via e-mail at
Andrea.Kelly@fcc.gov.
