In the Matter of
COMMUNICATIONS, INC. File No. CSG-86-070-P/L
Application for authority to construct
and operate international earth station
facilities at Chicago, Illinois for
provision of INTELSAT Business Services
ORDER AND AUTHORIZATION
Adopted: December 19, 1986 Released December 31, 1986
By the Common Carrier Bureau:
1. The Commission is considering an application filed
on August 25. 1986, by Comsat International Communications,
Inc. (CICI), requesting authority, pursuant to
Title III of the Communications Act of 1934, and Sections
201(c)(4), (c)(6) and (c)(7) of the Communications Satellite
Act of 1962, to construct and operate international
earth station facilities at Chicago, Illinois, for provision of
INTELSAT Business Services (IBS). The application was
placed on public notice on September 10, 1986. No
comments were received. The applicant has been granted
blanket authority to establish and operate channels of
communication between the US and various overseas
points for provision of IBS.'
2. The proposed earth station will consist of a 9 meter
antenna meeting INTELSAT Standard E-3 parameters
connecting with an INTELSAT V satellite in the 11/14,
12/14 GHz band. The proposed earth station will be
located in Chicago, Illinois and will be used to provide a
full range of IBS services to customers in the Chicago,
3. In its Report and Order in the Earth Station Ownership
Proceeding in CC Docket No. 82-540, the Commission
modified its policy on the ownership and operation
of U.S. international earth stations that access the INTELSAT
system by permitting carriers, individually or jointly,
to own and operate their own earth station facilities.2 In
that Order, the Commission distinguished between IBS
and/or television earth stations and multipurpose stations.
It determined that earth stations dedicated to providing
IBS and/or television services do not raise the same concerns
about impact on the INTELSAT system that are
raised by multipurpose stations. It also determined that
the public interest requires that IBS be introduced in the
United States as soon as possible. The Commission therefore
concluded that it would consider only minimal legal,
financial, and technical qualifications of the applicant as
required by Sections 308 and 319 of the Communications
Act, when processing IBS and television service applications.
The Commission further concluded that absent
special problems, it would treat these applications as
routine and expeditiously process them.3 The Commission
has granted many applications to construct and operate
IBS earth stations based on this approach.4
4. CICI's legal, technical. and financial qualifications to
construct and operate the proposed earth station are established.
CICI has been authorized to construct and
operate other IBS earth stations.5 The proposed earth
station complies with INTELSAT performance criteria for
IBS stations. AT
