between NGSO MSS and LMDS.
(a) Non-geostationary Mobile-Satellite Service (NGSO MSS) operators
shall be licensed to use the 29.1-29.25 GHz band for Earth-to-space
transmissions from feeder link earth station complexes. A "feeder link
earth station complex" may include up to three (3) earth station
groups, with each earth station group having up to four (4) antennas,
located within a radius of 75 km of a given set of geographic
coordinates provided by a NGSO MSS licensees or applicants pursuant to
(b) A maximum of seven (7) feeder link earth station complexes in the

accordance with § 25.203 and § 101.147 of this chapter.
(c) One of the NGSO MSS operators licensed to use the 29.1-29.25 GHz
band may specify geographic coordinates for a maximum of eight feeder
link earth station complexes that transmit in the 29.1-29.25 GHz band.
The other NGSO MSS operator licensed to use the 29.1-29.25 GHz band may
specify geographic coordinates for a maximum of two feeder link earth
station complexes that transmit in the 29.1-29.25 GHz band.
(d) Additional NGSO MSS operators may be licensed in this band if the
additional NGSO MSS operator shows that its system can share with the
existing NGSO MSS systems.
(e) All NGSO MSS operators shall cooperate fully and make reasonable
efforts to identify mutually acceptable locations for feeder link earth
station complexes. In this connection, any single NGSO MSS operator
shall only identify one feeder link earth station complex protection
zone in each category identified in § 101.147(c)(2) of this chapter
until the other NGSO MSS operator has been given an opportunity to
select a location from the same category.
