§ 5.61 Procedure for obtaining a special temporary authorization.
(a)(1) An applicant may request a Special Temporary Authorization (STA)

during a period of time not to exceed 6 months.
(2) Applications for STA must be submitted electronically through the
Office of Engineering and Technology Web site http://www.fcc.gov/els at
least 10 days prior to the proposed operation. Applications filed less
than 10 days prior to the proposed operation date will be accepted only
upon a showing of good cause.
(3) In special situations, as defined in § 1.915(b)(1) of this chapter,

(8) Frequency (or frequency bands) requested.
(9) Maximum effective radiated power (ERP) or equivalent isotropically
radiated power (EIRP).
(10) Emission designator (see § 2.201 of this chapter) or describe
emission (bandwidth, modulation, etc.)
(11) Overall height of antenna structure above the ground (if greater
than 6 meters above the ground or an existing structure, see part 17 of
this chapter concerning notification to the FAA).
(c) Extensions of an STA may be granted provided that an application
for a conventional experimental license that is consistent with the
terms and conditions of that STA (i.e., there is no increase in
