§  73.827   Interference to the input signals of FM translator or FM booster

   (a) An authorized LPFM station will not be permitted to continue to
   operate if an FM translator or FM booster station demonstrates that the
   LPFM station is causing actual interference to the FM translator or FM
   booster station's input signal, provided that the same input signal was
   in use at the time the LPFM station was authorized.

   (b) Complaints of actual interference by an LPFM station subject to
   paragraph (a) of this section must be served on the LPFM licensee and
   the Federal Communications Commission, attention Audio Services
   Division. The LPFM station must suspend operations upon the receipt of
   such complaint unless the interference has been resolved to the
   satisfaction of the complainant on the basis of suitable techniques.
   Short test transmissions may be made during the period of suspended
   operation to check the efficacy of remedial measures. An LPFM station
   may only resume full operation at the direction of the Federal
   Communications Commission. If the Commission determines that the
   complainant has refused to permit the LPFM station to apply remedial
   techniques that demonstrably will eliminate the interference without
   impairment of the original reception, the licensee of the LPFM station
   is absolved of further responsibility for the complaint.
