§ 74.537 Temporary authorizations.
(a) Special temporary authority may be granted for aural broadcast STL
or intercity relay station operation which cannot be conducted in
accordance with § 74.24. Such authority will normally be granted only
for operations of a temporary nature. Where operation is seen as likely
on a continuing annual basis, an application for a regular
authorization should be submitted.
(b) A request for special temporary authority for the operation of an
aural broadcast STL or an intercity relay station must be made in
accordance with the procedures of § 1.931(b) of this chapter.
(c) All requests for special temporary authority of an aural broadcast
auxiliary stations must include full particulars including: licensee's
name and address, facility identification number of the associated
broadcast station(s), call letters of the aural broadcast STL or
intercity relay station, if assigned, type and manufacturer of
equipment, effective isotropic radiated power, emission, frequency or
frequencies proposed for use, commencement and termination date and
location of the proposed operation, and purpose for which request is
made including any particular justification.
(d) A request for special temporary authorization shall specify a
frequency or frequencies consistent with the provisions of § 74.502.
However, in the case of events of widespread interest and importance
which cannot be transmitted successfully on these frequencies,
frequencies assigned to other services may be requested upon a showing
that operation thereon will not cause interference to established
stations. In no case will operation of an aural broadcast STL or
intercity relay station be authorized on frequencies employed for the
safety of life or property.
(e) When the transmitting equipment utilized is not licensed to the
user, the user shall nevertheless have full control over the use of the
equipment during the period it is operated.
(f) Special temporary authorization to permit operation of aural
broadcast STL or intercity relay stations or systems pending FCC action
on an application for regular authority will normally not be granted.
