  • Globalstar shares recommended on weakness at Chardan
    Chardan recommends buying Globalstar on weakness and said the FCC's final rule on terrestrial low power service will likely follow the NPRM issued earlier this year and allow Globalstar to engage partners and monetize the spectrum. The firm reiterates its Buy rating and $6 price target.

    hopefully them African coverage maps need updating

    there's a duplex gateway in Kaduna, Nigeria that they don't show a coverage area for

    that gateway is 30% owned by GSAT and 70% owned by Global Touch West Africa

    as recent as the 2013 annual report we received this spring it was listed among the operational gateways

    regardless of whether the R&O comes at a monthly meeting or at an unannounced time other than the monthly meeting there is no need to place our NPRM again on the list of "items on circulation" (it won't happen)

    I speculated here last February that about the time they intend to release a decision on our proceeding they would be placing iridium's RM-11697 proceeding on the circulation list in order to either deny or proceed with if that happens I would construe it as a possible first indicator that our decision is at hand

    if the decision does come in a monthly meeting then we are not presently on the agenda for the Oct. 17th meeting

    the tentative agenda for the Nov.21st meeting should be posted on Oct. 31st

    we'll likely have our Q3 CC sometime the second week of November so it could be our next notable event

    back on January 28th I stumbled upon an internal working report in the FCC's website regarding ADS-B use with the HIBLEO-2 constellation (HIBLEO-2 is the ITU's designation for Iridium)

    I posted a link to that document back then which you might want to read

    it is post # 29291 from January 28th

    for the website it is on google " Silicon Investor Globalstar "

    Expectations for TLPS Approval

    by lakenonapatriot Sep 25, 2014 11:37 AM
    zxqwertas zxqwertas Sep 25, 2014 12:44 PM Flag

    any and all modifications to Part 25 regulations needed to facilitate TLPS authorization have already been included in the text of 13-213

    the Sept 30th FNPRM (12-267) won't address TLPS but neither will it delay it

    they're reopening that proceeding looking for additional suggestions to relieve unnecessary regulations that are burdensome to the FCC as well as the satellite operators

    since we've started talking about this FNPRM there has been comments added to the file by Viasat, Hughes, and an additional one (2 days ago) by SIA................none of them have anything remotely to do with our proceeding

    Iridium Filings on 9/22 and 9/23 Regarding 13-213

    although these filings get copied to Proceeding 13-213 they actually have their own separate proceeding identification which is where you have to go find GSAT's initial response to the proposal

    GSAT's in-depth response on this matter was filed back on Dec. 3, 2013 and is found under FCC Proceeding RM-11697

    111 is passing 107 now

    you got to zoom way in on the screen to see them both since they're so close together

    makes you wonder how far apart they are

    a little trivia from yesterday's daily FCC notices....

    SAT-AMD-20120809-00125 S2103 ORBCOMM License Corp.
    Dismissed as moot. See IBFS File No. SAT-MOD-20111021-00207 for a description of the action taken.
    SAT-MOD-20111021-00207 S2103 ORBCOMM License Corp.
    The Satellite Division has determined that ORBCOMM has met the fourth milestone (complete construction of and launch the first two
    satellites) associated with its authorization for next-generation non-voice, non-geostationary Mobile-Satellite Service (Little LEO) space

    that's just a periodic renewal of authorization for use of the satellites

    it isn't related to the TLPS proposal

    it's a necessary part of keeping the legacy MSS business in compliance

    next Friday (sept. 26th) they should announce the tentative agenda for the October 17th meeting

    hopefully we'll be on the agenda

    it was (and still is) posted on the yahoo "headlines" board

    just go back to the main page for GSAT then click "more headlines for GSAT" at the bottom of the headlines section because it was posted back on July 1st

    it's a well written presentation but there's nothing in it that wasn't stated by Mark Gomes from Seeking Alpha ten months earlier

    Commish Rosenworcel is generally viewed as the "swing vote" in any matters that have a partisan divide

    I don't see that will be a concern for us........but just the same it's good to have her in our corner

    for articles google : Jessica Rosenworcel swing vote

    109 (that started out as the lead sat) is only about 100 degrees behind 103 now (that started as the rearmost sat)

    once 109 gets to just 72 degrees behind 103 it will be on target

    the two rear sats (104 & 103) look to be very close to properly spaced (i.e. 72 degrees apart)

    109, 107,and 106 have been doing the most adjusting for a while now

    i'm guessing they'll all be in alignment for final raising around Sunday

    111 is clearly the sixth sat that will go to a different plane

    I wish it was us whiskey........but it ain't

    the good thing is that i see no reason for these proposals for part 25 modifications to have any bearing on our proceeding or represent a cause for delay it

    if we don't get added to the September agenda then the October 17th agenda should be announced on September 26th (which is prior to the September meeting)

    this is NOT our proceeding and is likely unrelated to our proceeding

    they're considering further modification to the comprehensive satellite regulations that were updated last year (FCC Proceeding 12-267)

    as of now we ain't on the agenda

    106 just drifted back behind 111, so they've swapped positions

    at this point i'm thinking 111 is the 6th sat that will head to a different plane

    109 & 107 have been moving at lower altitudes so they're stretching everything forward while 106, 104 & 103 are at higher altitudes to stretch rearward

    there's app. 180 degree separation around the planet from 109 to 103 now

    once they get that up to app 288 degrees they'll have hit their mark

    I can't say this is how I expected things to be it's interesting to watch

    if you live below the Mason-Dixon line you might be able to get coverage from them

    when Kymeta gets around to releasing the antenna you'll need.... it'll likely have a price tag in excess of $6K

  • zxqwertas by zxqwertas Sep 4, 2014 1:21 PM Flag

    they'll be due to announce the tentative agenda for the September 30th open meeting

    I think they'll also bump the meeting forward to September 19th at that time

    either way the agenda is due on the 9th
