§ 25.211 Analog video transmissions in the FSS.
(b) All conventional C-band analog video transmissions must contain an
energy dispersal signal at all times with a minimum peak-to-peak
bandwidth set at whatever value is necessary to meet the power flux
density limits specified in § 25.208(a) and successfully coordinated
internationally and accepted by adjacent U.S. satellite operators based
on the use of state of the art space and earth station facilities. All
transmissions in frequency bands described in § 25.208(b) and (c) must
also contain an energy dispersal signal at all times with a minimum
peak-to-peak bandwidth set at whatever value is necessary to meet the
power flux density limits specified in § 25.208(b) and (c) and
successfully coordinated internationally and accepted by adjacent U.S.
satellite operators based on the use of state of the art space and
earth station facilities.
(c) All initial analog video transmissions shall be preceded by a video
test transmission at an uplink e.i.r.p. at least 10 dB below the normal
operating level. The earth station operator shall not increase power
until receiving notification from the satellite network control center
that the frequency and polarization alignment are satisfactory pursuant
to the procedures specified in § 25.272. The stationary earth station
operator that has successfully transmitted an initial video test signal
to a satellite pursuant to this paragraph is not required to make
subsequent video test transmissions if subsequent transmissions are
conducted using exactly the same parameters as the initial
(d) An earth station may be routinely licensed for transmission of
full-transponder analog video services in the 5925-6425 MHz band or
14.0-14.5 GHz band provided:
(1) The application includes certification, pursuant to § 25.132(a)(1),
of conformance with the antenna performance standards in § 25.209(a) and
(2) For transmission in the 5925-6425 MHz band, the input power into
the antenna will not exceed 26.5 dBW; or
(3) For transmission in the 14.0-14.5 GHz band, the input power into
the antenna will not exceed 27 dBW.
(e) Applications for authority for analog video uplink transmission in
the 5925-6425 MHz or 14.0-14.5 GHz bands that are not eligible for
routine processing under paragraph (d) of this section are subject to
the requirements of § 25.220.
