§ 80.13   Station license required.

   (a) Except as noted in paragraph (c) of this section, stations in the
   maritime service must be licensed by the FCC either individually or by

   (b) One ship station license will be granted for operation of all
   maritime services transmitting equipment on board a vessel.
   Radiotelegraph and narrow-band directing-printing equipment will not be
   authorized, however, unless specifically requested by the applicant.

   (c) A ship station is licensed by rule and does not need an individual
   license issued by the FCC if the ship station is not subject to the
   radio equipment carriage requirements of any statute, treaty or
   agreement to which the United States is signatory, the ship station
   does not travel to foreign ports, and the ship station does not make
   international communications. A ship station licensed by rule is
   authorized to transmit radio signals using a marine radio operating in
   the 156-162 MHz band, any type of AIS, any type of EPIRB, and any type
   of radar installation. All other transmissions must be authorized under
   a ship station license. Even though an individual license is not
   required, a ship station licensed by rule must be operated in
   accordance with all applicable operating requirements, procedures, and
   technical specifications found in this part.
