§ 97.213   Telecommand of an amateur station.

   An amateur station on or within 50 km of the Earth's surface may be
   under telecommand where:

   (a) There is a radio or wireline control link between the control point
   and the station sufficient for the control operator to perform his/her
   duties. If radio, the control link must use an auxiliary station. A
   control link using a fiber optic cable or another telecommunication
   service is considered wireline.

   (b) Provisions are incorporated to limit transmission by the station to
   a period of no more than 3 minutes in the event of malfunction in the
   control link.

   (c) The station is protected against making, willfully or negligently,
   unauthorized transmissions.

   (d) A photocopy of the station license and a label with the name,
   address, and telephone number of the station licensee and at least one
   designated control operator is posted in a conspicuous place at the
   station location.
