Needs and Uses: On April 16, 2004, the FCC released a Fourth Report and Order in IB Docket Nos. 02-34 and 00-248, FCC 04-92. In this rulemaking, the Commission extended the mandatory electronic filing requirement to all space station and earth station applications, related pleadings, and other filings governed by part 25. Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) and Digital Audio Radio Service (DARS) licensees can now use a streamlined procedure when relocating satellites for fleet management purposes. Currently, this procedure is only limited to Geostationary Satellite Orbit (GSO) licensees. Under this streamlined procedure, the DBS and DARS licensees may modify its license without prior authorization, but upon 30 day prior notice to the Commission and any potentially affected licensed spectrum user. This will enable the Commission to act on DBS fleet management modifications faster.
