RE: The tariff classification of low noise block converter for satellite television reception from Japan.

Dear Mr. Paukstra:

In your letter dated July 19, 1990, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The subject converter is used in an antenna to amplify and downconvert an incoming electromagnetic signal. The complete antenna system is intended for direct broadcast satellite to have downlink application.

The applicable subheading for the low noise block converter will be 8529.10.2090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other parts of television antennas. The rate of duty will be 3.7 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
