transmission path to the entire area intended to be served and at which
there is available a suitable signal from the primary station, if any,

(d) Consideration should be given to the accessibility of the site at
all seasons of the year and to the availability of facilities for the

to the transmitter to avoid the use of long transmission lines and the
associated power losses.

in the retransmissions of signals originating on frequencies other than
that of the primary station being rebroadcast.
