Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
STA is necessary for authority to transmit low power, moderate bandwidth waveforms to overhead receivers in the 7900-8025 MHz fixed-satellite (Earth-to-space) band.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Purpose of operation is to evaluate novel low power wavefoms for satellite communications. The planned experiment will utilize a 1.8m ground based antenna which is fed by moderate (< 100 MHz) bandwidth phase modulated waveforms of 100 mW peak power. A total of 10 experiments spread across 6 months is planned, with each experiment lasting up to 15 minutes in duration.

Class of Station: FX
Nature of Service: Experimental

Requested Period of Operation
Operation Start Date: 10/01/2020
Operation End Date: 03/31/2021

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
TCS 1.8m X/Y 1 Yes
Centauri n/a 1 Yes
