SpaceX filed for a Ku-band gateway at McGregor, which is a little odd at this point.  I guess they'll use the Ku gateways for testing the payloads after launch?

https://fcc.report/IBFS/SES-LIC-INTR2020-03198
It is not Garteway, it is  user terminal with 1 m dish, for high speed like 300...500 Mbits

  That isn't the user terminal.

As I understand Space X file for FCC

all what work in Ka band are Gateways
all what work in Ku band are user terminal

They have also filed for some Ku-band gateways for testing the satellites.  The McGregor filing is for a gateway.  None of the Ku-band gateways have received their license yet, all are operating under STA.

All V0.9 sats are either deorbited or disfunctional.

"SpaceX submits this request now because it has an opportunity for a polar launch in
December that could be used to initiate its service to some of the most remote regions of the
country. "

I have some doubts about the veracity of that claim.

They don't make V-band sound very promising here...

That filing is great in that for the first time it states:

(1) Downlink to user to expand to 10 gigabit service from the current 100 megabit service; and
(2) The roadmap includes mobile service.

Increases in speeds and mobile service were expected eventually, but 10 gigabit service is an eye-opener.

Interesting that Musk participated in all four of these meetings, as did the Commissioners themselves.

SpaceX has got the approval to launch 10 Starlink satellites on this mission.

https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DA-21-34A1.pdf

This is for the satellites on Transporter 1 flight.

Licenses were approved for 13 gateways over the last couple days.

A couple recent documents from the big mess that is the 2020-04 modification filing.

SpaceX filed for a license to deploy the user terminals as ESIMs (on vehicles, vessels, aircraft).

On Friday, Musk spoke with Acting Chairwoman Rosenworcel about the modification requested last April.  Looks like there is a flurry of effort by SpaceX to finish the request and its competitors to keep the conversation going.

One interesting statement by SpaceX is that Amazon may have abandoned its system entirely.  That would be big news, if true!

Not a native speaker, but I read it as a jab at Amazon for focusing too much on lobbying and obstructing SpaceX's plans rather than building their constellation.

Certainly could be.
