Just didn't want to clog up inboxes. Below is my response to Tim and a thread I had with SES folks.

E51 is Geostationary
E52/53 is 3700-4200
E54/55 is 70.0/140.0
E60 is 0.0
The rest you'll have to figure out from the calculator found below because they're unique to you. 
Holler if you need help.

Kim and Will,

Just an update on my FCC filing. Finally hear from them today. Submitted on the 6th of June.

I used the calculator Will suggested and the numbers Kim recommended ( ~70 - 140 W ). The FCC requested a correction on E58 and said the angle should be 237.7. I'm a bit confused on how they got that number.

Latitude for our dish is 33.9014 or 33 54' 5.117"
Longitude is -98.5383 or 98 32' 17.92"

My answers on form 312:

E56: 135.7252
E57: 40.19167
E58 122.2637
E59 31.02769

Would you mind helping me figure out where I messed up?

Tim, just to add, we would put in an orbital arc range of  ~70 - 140 W, and compute the azimuth & elevation at each end of that range.

Hi Tim,
I am not an engineer but the below link appears to have a calculator of azimuth and elevation angles that works. I’ve checked the calculator’s results against previously filed earth station applications and the output appear to be accurate:
I have also copied Kim Baum, our VP of Spectrum Management and Spectrum Development in the Americas, in case you have any follow up technical questions.
I hope your procedure goes well and that you have a good weekend.

Re: Earth Station Registration

No worries Will. Appreciate you getting back to me. I've got to determine the following on the Frequency Coordination part under Antenna on the Schedule B portion:

E56: Earth Station Azimuth Angle Eastern Limit: [          ]
E57: Antenna Elevation Angle Eastern Limit: [          ]
E58: Earth Station Azimuth Angle Western Limit: [          ]
E59: Antenna Elevation Angle Western Limit:

Once I'm done with that I think I'll be done with it(I hope...)
I'll be out until Monday. Have a medical procedure tomorrow. Thanks for your assistance.

Hi Tim,
Sorry for my late reply. I am not familiar with this link, could you please let me know what element of the Form 312 you would like to use the calculator for? There may be a more publicly available tool that is available or I may be able to otherwise help you track down the information.

I'm trying to use the calculator found at  http://www.satcom.co.uk/article.asp?article=1 , but it is behind a password and username. What do I need to do to access this so I can finish our FCC Form 312?
