2 Experimental Operations Regulated under Part 5 of the FCC rules Administered by the FCC’s Office of Engineering and Technology (OET), Experimental Licensing Branch Experimentation in scientific or technical radio research and communications essential to a research project across all radio services Each application reviewed on a case by case basis Operations are on a non-interference, unprotected basis 2

3 Cube Quest Where to file – Form 442 using ELS system www.fcc.gov/els www.fcc.gov/els When – file early What  Administrative information  Technical specifications – frequency, power, bandwidth, emission  Description of the project and operation of the space station Things to consider  IARU coordination (if using amateur frequencies);  Orbital Debris and end of mission disposal; and  Any special designs 3

4 Satellite – FCC Part 25 bands  Existing space service bands may be candidates for consideration  Must not interfere with existing licensees Amateur frequency bands  Still requires a Part 5 Experimental license  Some bands are heavily used by amateur licensees and are not recommended  Requires IARU coordination, see http://www.iaru.org/satellite.html Part 15 bands  Still requires a Part 5 Experimental license  Some bands are heavily congested Frequency Considerations 4
