§ 80.605   U.S. Coast Guard coordination.

   (a) Radionavigation coast stations operated to provide information to
   aid in the movement of any ship are private aids to navigation. Before
   submitting an application for a radionavigation station, an applicant
   must obtain written permission from the cognizant Coast Guard District
   Commander at the area in which the device will be located. The
   Commission may request an applicant to provide documentation as to this
   fact. Note: Surveillance radar coast stations do not require U.S. Coast
   Guard approval.

   (b) Coast station transponders (i.e., radar beacons, or racons)
   operating in the band 2900-3100 or 9300-9500 MHz shall meet the
   requirements of ITU-R M.824-3 (incorporated by reference, see § 80.7).
   Applications for certification of these transponders must include a
   description of the technical characteristics of the equipment including
   the scheme of interrogation and the characteristics of the transponder
   response, and test results demonstrating the device meets each
   applicable requirement of this ITU-R recommendation.

   (c) The use of ship station transponders in the band 2900-3100 or
   9300-9500 MHz other than those described in § § 80.1085(a)(3) and
   80.1095(b) is prohibited.
