Help Arrives for C-Band Earth Station Filings

Posted on July 31st, 2018 by

As covered in last month’s newsletter, the International Bureau has extended the deadline for filing C-Band registrations to October 17, 2018. If you have not filed to register your C-band dish, we strongly recommend that you do so, as the FCC is actively considering new uses for the C-Band and registered C-Band dishes will be protected from service disruption.

In recent days, the National Association of Broadcasters announced that SES, a C-band satellite operator, has extended an offer to reimburse broadcast stations for the $435 FCC application fee for C-band dish registration. Stations can contact SES directly for further information at or by phone at (609) 987-4300.
