Regulatory Alert: Register Your C-Band Receive-Only Earth Station Now

I’d like to take a moment to call your attention to this important notice from the National SBE OfficeThis impacts any broadcaster that uses a C Band satellite dish to receive programming for rebroadcast. 

Please strongly consider licensing your satellite dish during this brief window.  I will keep a file of vendors providing this service in an effort to find the least costly way for you to do this. Yes I understand it is an unplanned expense, but the costs of NOT doing so might be much more. Protect your broadcasts and license that earth station!  

This affects ALL RADIO STATIONS with the large satellite receive dishes.  Reach out to your smaller broadcaster friends and clients – be sure they understand this issue!

If you have questions about this issue, e-mail me at and I will attempt to find answers for you.

This is from one vendor that can assist in registration

These are some “do-it-yourself” instructions
