station may make any changes in equipment that are deemed desirable or
(1) That the operating frequency is not permitted to deviate more than
the allowed tolerance;
(2) That the emissions are not permitted outside the authorized band;
(3) That the ERP (or EIRP) and antenna complies with the license and
the regulations governing the same; and

in paragraph (a) of this section may be made without prior

supporting the radiating portion of the antenna or decrease the height
of a lighted antenna structure.
(2) Any change in the location of an antenna when such relocation
involves a change in the geographic coordinates of latitude or
longitude by one second or more, or when such relocation involves a
change in street address.
