FCC 80.70 Revised as of December 4, 2012
Goto Year:2011 |
§ 80.70 Special conditions relative to coast station VHF facilities.
(a) Coast stations which transmit on the same radio channel above 150
MHz must minimize interference by reducing radiated power, by
decreasing antenna height or by installing directional antennas. Coast
stations at locations separated by less than 241 kilometers (150 miles)
which transmit on the same radio channel above 150 MHz must also
consider a time-sharing arrangement. The Commission may order station
changes if agreement cannot be reached between the involved licensees.
(b) Coast stations which transmit on a radio channel above 150 MHz and
are located within interference range of any station within Canada or
Mexico must minimize interference to the involved foreign station(s),
and must notify the Commission of any station changes.
(c) A VHF (156-162 MHz) public coast licensee initially authorized on
any of the channels listed in the table in § 80.371(c)(1), or an AMTS
licensee initially authorized on any of the channel blocks listed in
the table in § 80.385(a)(2), may transfer or assign its channel(s), or
channel block(s), to another entity. If the proposed transferee or
assignee is the geographic area licensee for the geographic area to
which the frequency block is allocated, such transfer or assignment
will be deemed to be in the public interest. However, such presumption
will be rebuttable.
