responsibility to do the following:
(1) Monitor space-to-Earth transmissions in its system (thus indirectly
monitoring uplink earth station transmissions in its system) and
(2) Coordinate transmissions in its satellite system with those of
other systems to prevent harmful interference incidents or, in the
event of a harmful interference incident, to identify the source of the
interference and correct the problem promptly.
(c) The transmitting earth station licensee shall provide the
operator(s) of the satellites, on which the licensee is authorized to
transmit, contact telephone numbers for the control center of the earth
station and emergency telephone numbers for key personnel; a current
file of these contacts shall be maintained at each satellite system
(d) An earth station licensee shall ensure that each of its authorized
earth stations complies with the following:

center and the earth station operator or its remote control point as
designated by the licensee.
(2) The earth station operator shall notify the satellite network
control center and receive permission from the control center before
transmitting to the satellite or changing the basic characteristics of
(3) The earth station operator shall keep the space station licensee
informed of all actual and planned usage.
(4) Upon approval of the satellite network control center, the earth
station operator may radiate an RF carrier into the designated
transponder. Should improper illumination of the transponder or undue
adjacent transponder interference be observed by the satellite network
control center, the earth station operator shall immediately take
whatever measures are needed to eliminate the problem.
(5) The space station licensee may delegate the responsibility and
duties of the satellite network control center to a technically
qualified user or group of users, but the space station licensee shall
remain ultimately responsible for the performance of those duties.
