2ApplicationSIT/SUTSatellite Interactive Terminals (SIT) an Satellite User Terminals (SUT) in the Fixed satellite service (FSS).
High e.i.r.p. Satellite Terminal (HEST).
The SIT/SUT shall not be operated closer than 500m from the boundary fence of an airport.
3Frequency band29.50 - 30.00 GHzReceive frequency bands (Space-to-earth):
10.7 - 12.75 GHz, 19.7 - 20.2 GHz.
The receive band 10.7 - 11.7 GHz is co-primary used with the FS under the terms of sufficient geographical separation and uncoordinated FSS Earth stations operate in this band on a non protected basis.
