  §  25.217   Default service rules.

   (a) The technical rules in this section apply only to licenses to
   operate a satellite system in a frequency band granted after a domestic
   frequency allocation has been adopted for that frequency band, but
   before any frequency-band-specific service rules have been adopted for
   that frequency band.

   (b)(1) For all NGSO-like satellite licenses, except as specified in
   paragraph (b)(4) of this section, for which the application was filed
   pursuant to the procedures set forth in § 25.157 after August 27, 2003,
   authorizing operations in a frequency band for which the Commission has
   not adopted frequency band-specific service rules at the time the
   license is granted, the licensee will be required to comply with the
   technical requirements in paragraphs (b)(2) through (4) of this
   section, notwithstanding the frequency bands specified in these
   sections: § § 25.143(b)(2)(ii) (except NGSO FSS systems) and (iii),
   25.204(e), and 25.210(f) and (i).

   (2) In addition to the requirements set forth in paragraph (b)(1) of
   this section, the Commission will coordinate with the National
   Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) regarding the
   operations of any licensees authorized to operate in a shared
   government/non-government frequency band, pursuant to the procedure set
   forth in § 25.142(b)(2)(ii).

   (3) Mobile earth station licensees authorized to operate with one or
   more space stations subject to paragraph (b)(1) of this section must
   comply with the requirements in § § 25.285 and 25.287, notwithstanding
   the frequency bands specified in those sections. In addition, earth
   station licensees authorized to operate with one or more space stations
   described in paragraph (b)(1) of this section in frequency bands shared
   with terrestrial wireless services shall comply with the requirements
   in § 25.203(c).

   (4) For all small satellite licensees, for which the application was
   filed pursuant to § 25.122 or § 25.123, authorizing operations in a
   frequency band for which the Commission has not adopted frequency-band
   specific service rules at the time the license is granted, the licensee
   will not be required to comply with the technical requirements
   specified in this section.

   (c)(1) For all GSO-like satellite licenses for which the application
   was filed pursuant to the procedures set forth in § 25.158 after August
   27, 2003, authorizing operations in a frequency band for which the
   Commission has not adopted frequency band-specific service rules at the
   time the license is granted, the licensee will be required to comply
   with the following technical requirements, notwithstanding the
   frequency bands specified in these rule provisions: § § 25.143(b)(2)(iv),
   25.204(e), and 25.210(f), (i), and (j).

   (2) In addition to the requirements set forth in paragraph (c)(1) of
   this section, the Commission will coordinate with the National
   Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) regarding the
   operations of any licensees authorized to operate in a shared
   government/non-government frequency band, pursuant to the procedure set
   forth in § 25.142(b)(2)(ii).

   (3) Earth station licensees authorized to operate with one or more
   space stations described in paragraph (c)(1) of this section shall
   comply with the earth station antenna performance verification
   requirements in § 25.132, and the antenna gain pattern requirements in
   § 25.209(a) and (b). In addition, earth station licensees authorized to
   operate with one or more space stations described in paragraph (c)(1)
   of this paragraph in frequency bands shared with terrestrial wireless
   services shall comply with the requirements in § 25.203(c).

   (4) In addition to the requirements set forth in paragraph (c)(3) of
   this section, earth station licensees with a gain equivalent or higher
   than the gain of a 1.2 meter antenna operating in the 14.0-14.5 GHz
   band, authorized to operate with one or more space stations described
   in paragraph (c)(1) of this paragraph in frequency bands greater than
   14.5 GHz shall be required to comply with the antenna input power
   density requirements set forth in § 25.212(c).

   (d) [Reserved]

   (e) In the event that the Commission adopts frequency band-specific
   service rules for a particular frequency band after it has granted one
   or more space station or earth station licenses for operations in that
   frequency band, those licensees will be required to come into
   compliance with the frequency band-specific service rules within 30
   days of the effective date of those rules, unless otherwise specified
   by either Commission or Bureau Order.
