Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
The desired tests are of a short term nature and thus do not require an operational or experimental license. A STA is more appropriate. These tests will be conducted using one of the 7.3 m gateway antennas constructed for the VIASAT-1 satellite and leased bandwidth on the WILDBLUE-1 satellite at 111.1 deg W.L.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  ViaSat desires to perform network optimization and tuning experiments in advance of the launch of its VIASAT-1 spacecraft to be located at 115.1 deg W.L. Adds frequencies 28.35 - 28.6 GHz to those authorized by STA 0211-EX-ST-2011. Stop buzzer info: 720-493-7300

Callsign: WE9XXM
Class of Station: FX
Nature of Service: Experimental

Requested Period of Operation
Operation Start Date: 04/11/2011
Operation End Date: 10/10/2011
