Last month we reported that the FCC had decided to classify the relatively new Earth Stations Aboard Aircraft (ESAA) service as co-primary along with other fixed satellite services sharing the 14.0-14.5 GHz band. At the same time the Commission tweaked a couple of other ESAA-related rules. As we noted, the changes would not become effective until 30 days after they appear in the Federal Register. The clock on that has started to count down: the FCC’s decision has been published in the Federal Register and, as a result, the new rules will become effective on June 11, 2014.
