the minimum earth station antenna size to 1.2 meters would increase the potential for interference to
military operations, and thus would be inconsistent with our interest in ensuring shared Federal/non-
Federal use of the band. Moreover, given that Federal operations in this band are not geographically
restricted, we conclude that it would not be appropriate to propose blanket licensing of earth stations in
the band.'" Blanket licensing is appropriate for deploying large numbers of technically identical earth
stations whose operations are unlikely to cause interference to other users regardless of location. In this
case, individual licensing of earth stations and coordination with government operations through the FAS
process is the better approach: since the location of each authorized earth station is known, the
Commission and the affected government agencies can evaluate each deployment and thereby reduce the
likelihood of interference and ensure that spectrum is used efficiently.

operations, we note that Federal radiolocation operations can occur anywhere within the United States.
