                                  EXHIBIT 1
                  REQUEST FOR SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY

       DIRECTV Enterprises, LLC (“DIRECTV”) respectfully requests a grant of earth station

special temporary authority (“STA”)1 for 30 days commencing September 10, 2019 to operate its

Bakersfield, California earth station (Call Sign E170103) to deorbit DIRECTV’s T4S satellite

(Call Sign S2430).

       T4S is approaching the end of its operational life, and DIRECTV expects to begin

deorbiting the satellite as early as September 10, 2019. DIRECTV plans to operate its

Bakersfield, California earth station (Call Sign E170103) to deorbit T4S and anticipates a need to

do so utilizing broader satellite arc, elevation, and azimuth limits than what are currently

authorized under the existing authorization. Accordingly, DIRECTV respectfully requests a

grant of STA for 30 days commencing September 10, 2019 to operate the earth station utilizing a

satellite arc east limit of 55.0 W.L. (with elevation of 12.5 and azimuth of 105.7) and a

satellite arc west limit of 170.0 W.L. (with elevation of 23.0 and azimuth of 244.9) for all

authorized frequency ranges.

       The 24/7 emergency contact information is as follows: Steve Dulac at (310) 429-1624.

       Grant of this earth station STA request is in the public interest because it will facilitate

the deorbiting of DIRECTV’s T4S satellite. Accordingly, DIRECTV respectfully requests that

the Commission grant this request.
