On April 19, 2018, the FCC instituted a freeze on applications for any new receive-only Earth stations in the 3.7 to 4.2 Ghz frequency band. (C-band) however the commission has allowed existing earth stations to be registered until July 18, 2018. There is a $435 registration fee per C-band downlink, unless you are a non-commercial educational facility. More information can be found at the FCC.gov homepage, and at the SBE national website.
