          Re:     SpaceX Services, Inc. —Requestfor Special Temporary Authority

Dear Ms. Dortch:

       SpaceX Services, Inc. ("SpaceX Services") has filed six applications seeking Special
Temporary Authority ("STA") to operate its gateway earth stations for up to 60 days to
communicate with the first tranche ofnon—geostationary orbit satellites to be launched by its sister
company, Space Exploration Holdings, LLC ("SpaceX").‘ SpaceX Services currently has
underlying applications pending for six Ku—band gateway earth station sites. It has recently
amended those applications to increase the number of antennas at each site from oneto four.

        This is to clarify that SpaceX Services requests STAsthat reflect the underlying gateway
applications as amended, such that SpaceX Services would be authorized to operate all four
antennas at each site with the technical characteristics set forth in the associated pending
applications, as amended. For ease ofreference, the table below correlates the IBFS file numbers
for the pending earth station and STA applications.
