§ 1.915   General application requirements.

   (a) General requirement. Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this
   section, for all Wireless Radio Services, station licenses, as defined
   in section 308(a) of the Communications Act, as amended, operator
   licenses, modifications or renewals of licenses, assignments or
   transfers of control of station licenses or any rights thereunder, and
   waiver requests associated with any of the foregoing shall be granted
   only upon an application filed pursuant to § § 1.913 through 1.917 of
   this part.

   (b)(1) Exception for emergency filings. The Commission may grant
   station licenses, or modifications or renewals thereof, without the
   filing of a formal application in the following cases:

   (i) an emergency found by the Commission to involve danger to life or
   property or to be due to damage to equipment;

   (ii) a national emergency proclaimed by the President or declared by
   the Congress and during the continuance of any war in which the United
   States is engaged, when such action is necessary for the national
   defense or security or otherwise in furtherance of the war effort; or

   (iii) an emergency where the Commission finds that it would not be
   feasible to secure renewal applications from existing licensees or
   otherwise to follow normal licensing procedures.

   (2) No such authorization shall be granted for or continue in effect
   beyond the period of the emergency or war requiring it. The procedures
   to be followed for emergency requests submitted under this subparagraph
   are the same as for seeking special temporary authority under § 1.931
   of this part. After the end of the period of emergency, the party must
   submit its request by filing the appropriate FCC form in accordance
   with paragraph (a) of this section.
