EchoStar Donating Satellite Comm Services to Haiti Relief Agencies

EchoStar Satellite Services is donating satellite communications services to Haiti relief agencies following the disastrous earthquake. As part of its outreach, EchoStar notified the FCC about its intentions on Jan. 14. EchoStar is offering Ku-band satellite bandwidth capacity from its EchoStar IX satellite located at 121 degrees W.L.

Relief agencies seeking to establish an emergency channel or conduct satellite backhaul or uplink services should contact EchoStar’s traffic desk at 888-778-3728. EchoStar IX’s satellite beam covers not only the United States, but Haiti as well due to its close proximity.
