§  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.
