Man, I checked on this less than a hour ago and it wasn't there! :nono: Anyhooo . . . I think the Commission would be absolutely foolish to deny Directv's request for the STA. And in fact, I think they will grant it, since as Directv points out, Spectrum Five's arguments are very, very weak. I also think the FCC will grant Directv's operational license eventually, either when the parties work out something to make the dispute go away, or when Spectrum Five and/or Ciel never quite get around to launching payloads that utilize the spectrum and their arguments are dismissed as moot.
