§ 25.173   Results of in-orbit testing.

   (a) Space station operators must measure the co-polarized and
   cross-polarized performance of space station antennas through in-orbit
   testing and submit the measurement data to the Commission upon request.

   (b) Within 15 days after completing in-orbit testing of a space station
   licensed under this part, the operator must notify the Commission that
   such testing has been completed and certify that the space station's
   measured performance is consistent with the station authorization and
   that the space station is capable of using its assigned frequencies or
   inform the Commission of any discrepancy. The licensee must also
   indicate in the filing whether the space station has been placed in the
   assigned geostationary orbital location or non-geostationary orbit. If
   the licensee files a certification pursuant to this paragraph before
   the space station has been placed in its assigned orbit or orbital
   location, the licensee must separately notify the Commission that the
   space station has been placed in such orbit or orbital location within
   3 days after such placement and that the station's measured performance
   is consistent with the station authorization.
