There's a filing dealing with the Boca Chica launch site but I can't read the narrative document while the FCC server is down for maintenance.

looks like a boostback burn and closer ASDS location on the CRS-22 flight.

Future launches may not need to apply for these permits, starting quite soon. The rule to allow FCC licenses instead of experimental permits for the launch communications will be considered at this week's FCC meeting.

Some of the frequencies used by SpaceX aren't covered in the initial rules, and they have to actually put rules into service before STA's aren't used anymore, so we may still see them for a while.  There is another proceeding to expand the rules later.

0628-EX-ST-2021

Mid-inclination Starlink mission named "Starlink-26" by which it seems likely they mean v1.0 L25, but also possibly L26 based on the use of that numbering elsewhere. Proposed start date is 2021-05-13. Apparently the Starlink RF Missions don't include this one?

"This STA is intended to cover pre-launch testing for a commercial payload on mission 1458. Tests involve fairing re-rad operations at Pad 40 at Cape Canaveral AFS or Pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center, and stand-alone testing at the SpaceX Payload Processing Facility. This STA is not for flight."

looks the same as the previous GPS mission
