Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
ViaSat is integrating and testing three 13 m antenna systems and needs to test and demonstrate system performance to the customer. Being for testing prior to delivery of the systems, the testing is not of an ongoing nature that would require an experimental license and an STA is more appropriate.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Tests will demonstrate that the antenna system meets the specified performance critiera.

Callsign: WQ9XAZ
Class of Station: FX
Nature of Service: Experimental

Requested Period of Operation
Operation Start Date: 02/10/2020
Operation End Date: 07/02/2020
