A Telesat spokesman said Wednesday that "letters of in- terest" have been sent to about 50 manufacturers. These were not requests for proposals but for indications of interest com- bined with evidence of capabil- ity of handling the contracting. Tile spokesman said Telesat plans to build perhaps 31 of the various types of earth stations required for the communica- tions program before the end of 1972, at a cost of million- plus. Telesat has received replies from 14 of the companies. After it has examined the responses it will select companies eligible to bid for prime contracting. There are four classes of earth stations to be built. The two main heavy route Italians, which will be able to and receive all forms of traffic to and from the satellite, will be located at Cowichan e, 40 miles north of Victoria, and Allan Park, 70 miles north- west of Toronto. A second class of regional net- work-quality television stations viU be located near Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg, Halifax and >t. John's, Nfld.

Finally, 25 small television re- ceiving stations will be erected in remote northern areas. Tlie spokesman said most of the 50 letters of interest have been sent to companies with manufacturing facilities in Can- ada. Canadian content would play an important role in assessing bids, with the cabinet responsi- ble for approving Telesat's rec- ommendation.

The rate in- crease, not specified in the let- ter, was reported from other sources as -near 13 per cent.
