Goto Year:2011 |
§ 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.
