§ 73.28 Assignment of stations to channels.
(a) The Commission will not make an AM station assignment that does not
conform with international requirements and restrictions on spectrum
use that the United States has accepted as a signatory to treaties,
conventions, and other international agreements. See § 73.1650 for a
list of pertinent treaties, conventions and agreements, and § 73.23 for
procedural provisions relating to compliance with them.
(b) Engineering standards now in force domestically differ in some
respects from those specified for international purposes. The
engineering standards specified for international purposes (see
§ 73.1650, International Agreements) will be used to determine:
(1) The extent to which interference might be caused by a proposed
station in the United States to a station in another country; and
(2) whether the United States should register an objection to any new
or changed assignment notified by another country. The domestic
standards in effect in the United States will be used to determine the
extent to which interference exists or would exist from a foreign
station where the value of such interference enters into a calculation
(i) The service to be rendered by a proposed operation in the United
(ii) the permissible interfering signal from one station in the United
States to another United States station.
