Phone Number: 253-351-1382

Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Sea Launch is required to obtain a license which permits the Space Systems Loral Spacecraft to free radiate within their fully enclosed Payload Processing Facility, in Long Beach. The shielding effectiveness chart, from 1-18 GHz, for the Payload Processing Facility-Encapsulation Cell was provided in an application (File Number: 0242-EX-ST-2002). Also, Sea Launch requests that the existing call sign WA2XQQ be employed for this STA. This STA is requested to allow testing of the satellite antenna system before encapsulation.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation: Testing of satellite antenna system before encapsulation.

Information
Callsign: WA2XQQ
Class of Station: FX
Nature of Service: Experimental

Location of proposed operation
Operation Start Date: 10/10/2006
Operation End Date: 01/30/2007

Manufacturer
List below transmitting equipment to be installed (if experimental, so state) if additional rows are required, please submit equipment list as an exhibit:
Manufacturer Model Number No. Of Units Experimental
BSS XMRadio-4 1 Yes

Certification
Neither the applicant nor any other party to the application is subject to a denial of Federal benefits that includes FCC benefits pursuant to Section 5301 of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, 21 U.S.C. Section 862, because of a conviction for possession or distribution of a controlled substance. The applicant hereby waives any claim to the use of any particular frequency or electromagnetic spectrum as against the regulatory power of the United States because of the prvious use of the same, whether by license or otherwise, and requests authorization in accordance with this application.
