The Federal Communications Commission dropped discussion of the on-again/off-again auction of DBS licenses located at non full-CONUS orbital locations from its Thursday meeting agenda.
The commission was set to consider an order resolving issues related to the proposed auction of the DBS licenses, an effort that included discussion on the eligibility for DBS licenses currently available. No reason was given for the dropped agenda item.
The auction includes four licenses for unassigned channels at these orbital locations: 175 degrees, 166 degrees, 157 degrees, and 61.5 degrees.
