Coordination of NonGeo/Geo-Stationary Satellite Service & Fixed, BAS and CARS
This Commission has proposed to modify its frequency coordination rules to promote sharing between non-geostationary satellite orbit (NGSO) and geostationary satellite orbit (GSO) fixed-satellite service (FSS) operations and various terrestrial services operating in several frequency bands. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking considered a joint proposal by SkyBridge L.L.C. and the Fixed Wireless Communications Coalition (Skybridge/FWCC Growth Zone Proposal) to supplement our existing coordination procedures to promote sharing between new NGSO FSS space-to-Earth (downlink) operations and existing Fixed Service (FS) operations in the 10.7-11.7 GHz (10 GHz) band. It also set forth proposals for amending the frequency coordination rules to address situations where NGSO FSS and GSO FSS operations share spectrum with terrestrial operations in the FS, Broadcast Auxiliary Service (BAS) and Cable Television Relay Service (CARS) in various bands.


Amendment of Parts 25, 74, 78 and 101 of the Rules Regardng Coordination between the Non-Geostationary and Geostationary Satellite Orbit Fixed-Satellite Service and Fixed, Broadcast Auxilliary and CATV Relay Services in the 7GHz, 10 GHz and 13GHz Frequency Bands.
