        Re:       Request for Further Extension of Special Temporary Authority
                  Ellenwood, Georgia Earth Station E000048

Dear Ms. Dortch:

Intelsat License LLC (“Intelsat”) herein requests an additional 60 days of Special Temporary
Authority (“STA”)’ previously granted Intelsat to use its Ellenwood, Georgia Ku-band earth station
(Call Sign E000048) to provide communications services2 to Intelsat 903 (Call Sign S2407) at 31.50
W.L. Intelsat has a pending application to permanently modify the earth station license.3

The Intelsat 903 operations will continue to be performed using the following bands: 14000-14500
MHz in the uplink; and 10950-11200 MHz and 11450-11700 MHz in the downlink. The operations at
31.50 W.L. will continue to be consistent with Intelsat’s coordination agreements for the nominal
3 J .5o W.L. location. All operators of potentially affected satellites will be provided with an
emergency phone number where the licensee can be reached in the event that harmful interference
occurs.

The 24x7 contact information for the Intelsat 903 operations are as follows:


         Intelsat has filed its STA request, an FCC Form 159, a $210.00 filing fee, and this supporting
letter electronically via the International Bureaus Filing System (IBfS”).
