Re: RE: [Fwd: ARLB035 FCC declines to grant amateur LF



A station 50km or less from the Earth's surface accessing a "Space Station"
(more than 50km above the Earth per 97.3a.40) operates as an "Earth Station
under 97.209 and is defined at 07.3a.16 - the FCC limits the bands
available for "Earth Stations" and that's about it. According to 97.3a.4
you are under the "Amateur Satellite Service" if you are "using stations on
Earth satellites for the same purpose as those of the amateur service."

Also see the definitions of "Amateur Service" and "Amateur Satellite
Service" at 97.3a.3 and 97.3a.4 .

Please, don't guess.

Suggest reading:  http://www.iaru.org/satellite/sat-freq-coord.html.  Pay
particular attention to the definitions.

Then, if you still have questions, please ask.
