Transmitting satellite earth stations


The Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS) issues license for the uplink, i.e. the transmission from earth station to satellite. In case there is an associated downlink, i.e. if the earth station will also receive transmissions from satellite, PTS request information about the frequency(s) as part of the processing. However, these are not specified in the permit and do not form part of it.

Anyone who wishes to apply for a license to use radio transmitters in an earth station must attach to the application a certificate that all transmissions to satellites have been approved by the satellite operator.
If the applicant is represented by an representative, a power of attorney is also needed that shows that the representative is authorized to represent the applicant.

In cases where an earth station transmits to several satellite systems, PTS issues a license per satellite system.
The application is sent to pts@pts.se.

Please note that there is an exemption from license obligation for certain transmitting land earth stations (such as certain SNG applications) in the frequency bands 14–14.5 GHz and 29.5–30 GHz - more information, pdf, new window
