§  22.880   Information exchange.

   (a) Prior notification. Public safety/CII licensees may notify a
   commercial aviation air-ground system licensee that they wish to
   receive prior notification of the activation or modification of a
   commercial aviation air-ground system ground station site in their
   area. Thereafter, the commercial aviation air-ground system licensee
   must provide the following information to the public safety/CII
   licensee at least 10 business days before a new ground station is
   activated or an existing ground station is modified:

   (1) Location;

   (2) Effective radiated power;

   (3) Antenna manufacturer, model number, height above ground level and
   up tilt angle, as installed;

   (4) Channels available for use.

   (b) Purpose of prior notification. The prior notification of ground
   station activation or modification is for informational purposes only:
   public safety/CII licensees are not afforded the right to accept or
   reject the activation of a proposed ground station or to unilaterally
   require changes in its operating parameters. The principal purposes of
   prior notification are to:

   (1) Allow a public safety licensee to advise the commercial aviation
   air-ground system licensee whether it believes a proposed ground
   station will generate unacceptable interference;

   (2) Permit commercial aviation air-ground system licensee(s) to make
   voluntary changes in ground station parameters when a public safety
   licensee alerts them to possible interference; and

   (3) Rapidly identify the source if interference is encountered when the
   ground station is activated.
