FCC 22.401 Revised as of December 4, 2012
Goto Year:2011 |
§ 22.401 Description and purposes of developmental authorizations.
Eligible entities ( see § 22.7) may apply for, and the FCC may grant,
authority to construct and operate one or more transmitters subject to
the rules in this subpart and other limitations, waivers and/or
conditions that may be prescribed. Authorizations granted on this basis
are developmental authorizations. In general, the FCC grants
developmental authorizations in situations and circumstances where it
cannot reasonably be determined in advance whether a particular
transmitter can be operated or a particular service can be provided
without causing interference to the service of existing stations. For
example, the FCC may grant developmental authorizations for:
(a) Field strength surveys to evaluate the technical suitability of
antenna locations for stations in the Public Mobile Services;
(b) Experimentation leading to the potential development of a new
Public Mobile Service or technology; or,
(c) Stations transmitting on channels in certain frequency ranges, to
provide a trial period during which it can be individually determined
whether such stations can operate without causing excessive
interference to existing services.
