§  22.3   Authorization required.

   Stations in the Public Mobile Services must be used and operated only
   in accordance with the rules in this part and with a valid
   authorization granted by the FCC under the provisions of this part.

   (a) The holding of an authorization does not create any rights beyond
   the terms, conditions and period specified in the authorization.
   Authorizations may be granted upon proper application, provided that
   the FCC finds that the applicant is qualified in regard to citizenship,
   character, financial, technical and other criteria, and that the public
   interest, convenience and necessity will be served. See 47 U.S.C. 301,
   308, and 309.

   (b) Authority for subscribers to operate mobile or fixed stations in
   the Public Mobile Services, except for certain stations in the Rural
   Radiotelephone Service, is included in the authorization held by the
   licensee providing service to them. Subscribers are not required to
   apply for, and the FCC does not accept applications from subscribers
   for, individual mobile or fixed station authorizations in the Public
   Mobile Services, except that individual authorizations are required to
   operate rural subscriber stations in the Rural Radiotelephone Service
   under certain circumstances. See §  22.703.
