Re:    Request for Further Extension of Special Temporary Authority to Operate a New Remote
       VSAT Terminal with Intelsat’s Ellenwood, Georgia VSAT Hub; Call Sign E050169


Dear Ms. Dortch:

Intelsat License LLC (“Intelsat”) herein requests an additional 30 days of Special Temporary
Authority (“STA”)1 previously granted to Intelsat to temporarily operate a new Ku-band remote
VSAT terminal with Intelsat’s Ellenwood, Georgia VSAT hub (Call Sign E050169)2 in order to
communicate with Intelsat satellites on the Federal Communication Commission’s (“Commission”)
Permitted List for a customer demonstration. The VSAT terminal is located in Liberty, Washington
and the demonstration is still ongoing and is expected to take at least an additional 30 days.

The demonstration will continue to be performed in the following frequency bands: 14346.5-14358.0
MHz in the uplink; and 12046.5-12058.0 MHz in the downlink. The proposed operations will be
consistent with Intelsat’s coordination agreements. The 24x7 contact information for the operations is
as follows:

  Intelsat has filed this STA request, an FCC Form 159, and a $210.00 filing fee electronically via the
International Bureau’s Filing System.

In further support of this request, Intelsat incorporates by reference Exhibit A, a Radiation Hazard

interference should occur due to transmissions to or from its remote terminal, Intelsat will take all
reasonable steps to eliminate the interference.

The continued temporary operation of a new remote VSAT terminal will help demonstrate services to
a potential customer. Accordingly, grant of this further STA extension request is in the public
interest.

For the reasons set forth herein, Intelsat respectfully requests that the Commission grant this further
STA extension request. Please direct any questions regarding this request to (703) 559-6949.
