Ka-band Earth Stations in-Motion (ESIM)

A new provision in Ka-band 29.5-30 GHz is permitted in New Zealand for uplink transmission by the class of station known as “earth station in motion” (ESIM) communicating with fixed-satellite networks in the downlink band 19.7-20.2 GHz (space-to-Earth direction).

This provision is in line with the outcomes of the World Radiocommunication Conference that concluded in November 2015, particularly Resolution 156 (WRC-15).

In order to fully cover the definition of ESIM, this new provision applicable to ESIM in the uplink band 29.5-30 GHz is included in the updated version of the following three General User Radio Licences applicable to satellite uplink transmission – one for terrestrial, one for aeronautical and one for maritime, respectively:

Radiocommunications Regulations (General User Radio Licence for Satellite Services) Notice 2016

Radiocommunications Regulations (General User Radio Licence for Aeronautical purposes) Notice 2016

Radiocommunications Regulations (General User Radio Licence for Maritime purposes) Notice 2016
