   (a) General rule. Stations in the Wireless Radio Services must be used
   and operated only in accordance with the rules applicable to their
   particular service as set forth in this title and with a valid
   authorization granted by the Commission under the provisions of this
   part, except as specified in paragraph (b) of this section.

   (b) Restrictions. The holding of an authorization does not create any
   rights beyond the terms, conditions and period specified in the
   authorization. Authorizations may be granted upon proper application,
   provided that the Commission finds that the applicant is qualified in
   regard to citizenship, character, financial, technical and other
   criteria, and that the public interest, convenience and necessity will
   be served. See § § 301, 308, and 309, 310 of this chapter.

   by the licensee providing service to them. Subscribers are not required
   to apply for, and the Commission does not accept, applications from
   subscribers for individual mobile or fixed station authorizations in
   the Wireless Radio Services. Individual authorizations are required to
   operate rural subscriber stations in the Rural Radiotelephone Service,
   except as provided in § 22.703 of this chapter. Individual
   authorizations are required for end users of certain Specialized Mobile
   Radio Systems as provided in § 90.655 of this chapter. In addition,
