By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:

     1.   In this Order, we adopt a Consent Decree terminating an 
inquiry  into   whether   OnSat  Network   Communications,   Inc. 
(``OnSat'') apparently violated Section 301 of the Communications 
Act of  1934, as  amended (``Act''),1  by operating  three  earth 
stations without Commission authorization. 

     2.   After reviewing the facts of record, we negotiated  the 
terms of  the Consent  Decree with  OnSat.  The  Consent  Decree, 
which is incorporated by reference in and attached to this Order, 
will terminate our inquiry.

     3.   Following  our  adoption  of  this  Order,  OnSat  will 
institute a compliance program and will make a $14,000  voluntary 
contribution to the United States Treasury. 

     4.   Based on  the record  before us,  we conclude  that  no 
substantial or material  questions of  fact exist  as to  whether 
OnSat possesses the basic qualifications, including those related 
to character, to hold or obtain any FCC license or authorization.

     5.   We believe that the public  interest will be served  by 
adopting the Consent Decree and terminating our inquiry.    

     6.   Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED,  pursuant to Sections  4(i) 
and (j)  of  the  Act,2  and Sections  0.111  and  0.311  of  the 
Commission's Rules,3  that the  Consent Decree,  incorporated  by 
reference in and attached to this Order, IS ADOPTED.

     7.   IT  IS  FURTHER  ORDERED  that  OnSat  shall  make  its 
voluntary contribution to  the United States  Treasury by  credit 
card through the Commission's  Credit and Debt Management  Center 
at (202) 418-1995, or by  mailing a check or similar  instrument, 
payable  to   the   order   of   the   ``Federal   Communications 
Commission,'' to the Federal Communications Commission, P.O.  Box 
73482, Chicago, Illinois 60673-7482.  The payment must include  a 
reference to ``EB-00-TS-240'' and ``NAL Acct. No. 200132100002.'' 
     8.   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that this inquiry IS TERMINATED.
